Megan Fenselau of the American Numismatic Society forwarded the following Press Release about a new publication. -Editor Numismatic Finds of the Americas: An Inventory of American Coin Hoards, Shipwrecks, Single Finds, and Finds in Excavations by John M. Kleeberg. The June 2009 release of Numismatic Finds of the Americas collects together for the first time the evidence for hoards, buried treasure and other finds of numismatic material from the Americas.
An inventory enumerates approximately 900 coin finds, chiefly from the United States, but also from Canada and most other countries in the Americas. This is supplemented with a listing of 150 finds of American coins outside the Americas.
Each entry contains the find spot, date of discovery, date of deposit, detailed description of the contents, and a bibliography. The inventory exploits the numismatic, shipwreck, and archaeological literature, newspapers, and law reports of treasure trove cases more thoroughly than has ever been done before.
This volume is available at the pre-publication price of $65 for orders received before June 15, 2009 (plus shipping and tax for NY residents).
