QUERY: THE MYSTERY OF HENRY MORGAN: A NUMISMATIC DETECTIVE STORY

While looking for other things I came across this 2007 title on the Token Publishing web site. This sounds like an interesting book. If anyone is familiar with it, please send us your thoughts for an upcoming E-Sylum issue.
Wiger Henry Morgan A numismatic detective story....

As featured in the June 2008 issue of COIN NEWS this new book by Andrew Wager makes a fascinating read.

The year is 1811 - the country, bled dry by years of war with Napoleonic France and ruled by "Mad" King George, is facing a financial crisis with small coinage almost impossible to find. Enter Henry Morgan who manufactured private silver tokens and offered them as a solution to the economic woes - but all was not as it seemed.... Just who was Henry Morgan? Entrepreneur? Conman? Did he even really exists at all?

This new book takes a fresh look at one of numismatics most enduring mysteries...

Published 2007; Author Andrew Wager; 144 pp.
ISBN: 978-0-9557261-1-8
