George Kolbe, Dan Hamelberg and I are doing some research as to the differences between Large and Small Format versions of Hickcox, Historical Account of American Coinage. I was wondering whether we could ask our subscribership if anyone owns a Small or Regular Format size Hickcox that either has an 1804 Dollar printed on the back of the last page facing the Plates or has a Hickcox with a border around the "Rosa" Plate 5. All other Plates should have borders.
I can be reached at email@example.com. Thanks!
This rare and important 1858 work was groundbreaking in its scope of coverage of U.S. coinage. I've forwarded information on my copy to Roger.
My copy does NOT have an 1804 Dollar printed on the back of the last page facing the Plates, nor does it have a border on Plate 5.
If you have a copy in your library, please participate in the survey.
