NEW BOOK: GOLD COINS OF THE CHARLOTTE MINT THIRD EDITION BY DOUGLAS WINTER

Uriah Cho of Zyrus Press forwarded the following release about the latest edition of Doug Winter's book on Charlotte Mint gold coins. -Editor
Winter Charlotte Front Douglas Winterís Gold Coins of the Charlotte Mint is a one-of-a-kind numismatic reference that is devoted solely and exclusively to Charlotte Mint gold coins struck from 1838 to 1861. Winter, who is regarded today as one of the leading industry experts in U.S. branch mint gold coins, has completely updated his book, implementing significant changes, additions and corrections to reflect shifting conditions in the market and newly discovered information.

High quality full color photos beautifully illustrate every coin and the newly improved die variety section now has outstanding close-up images of many important varieties. To bring the book up-to-date, similar layout designs to his previously released New Orleans and Dahlonega Mint books used in this current edition of the Charlotte Mint book make it easy to follow and more enjoyable to read.

All figures on population, rarity rankings, total values by grade and significant examples have been updated to reflect the latest market information available today, including a complete rarity summary chart at the end of each chapter.

For the historian, two chapters written about the history of the Charlotte Mint are included, and finally, Winterís personal tips and strategies on how to collect C-mint gold coins guide the reader. Whether the collector is looking to buy one or two pieces or to complete a set, Winterís suggestions offer an invaluable resource no matter what the budget or goal of the collector.

Jeff Ambio, author of the Strategy Guide series and a recognized numismatic expert, comments:
The Third Edition of Doug Winter's book Gold Coins of the Charlotte Mint is a masterpiece from an author who has already demonstrated his expertise on 19th century United States gold coinage on numerous occasions. This new edition is a much-needed improvement to Winter's earlier works on Charlotte Mint gold, with revised population data, rarity estimates, Condition Census information and die variety diagnostics. A definitive study that belongs in the library of all serious numismatic researchers and Southern gold experts.
