A second edition of the 1986 classic The Neighborhood Mint: Dahlonega in the Age of Jackson has been produced by Al Adams at Gold Rush Gallery, Inc. The new edition of the work by Sylvia Gailey Head and Elizabeth W. Etheridge includes new color photographs of coins produced at the Dahlonega Mint and the recently discovered photograph of the Dahlonega Mint.
The fascinating true story of the U.S. Branch Mint in the Dahlonega, Georgia (1838-1861). Based upon research from the National Archives, readers are taken though the founding, construction, operation, and eventual demise of the Mint. Discover the politics and scandals that made the parent Philadelphia Mint call Dahlonega “The Neighborhood Mint.”
The authors' sensitivity to historical ironies and their careful and exhausting use of rare primary source materials make this a useful book or professional historians. But it is a book for everyone to enjoy. Its compelling narrative, it development of characters, its sense of humor, its lively quotations from the correspondence of the period, and its constant attention to conflict in the community combine to make reading the book a pleasure as well as a profit.
The 234 page hardbound book is priced at $30, plus $4 shipping.
