NEW BOOK: WHITMAN ENCYCLOPEDIA OF U.S. PAPER MONEY

Dennis Tucker forwarded this release about the latest title from Whitman Publishing. -Editor

Bowers Whitman Encyclopedia U.S. Paper Money The Whitman Encyclopedia of U.S. Paper Money debuted at the first annual Whitman Coin and Collectibles Philadelphia Expo, September 23, 2009. The 900-page book by Q. David Bowers is now available online at WhitmanBooks.com, and from bookstores, hobby shops, and numismatic dealers nationwide.

Drawing on the expertise of dozens of specialists from around the nation, plus Bowers's own decades-long research of the subject, the Whitman Encyclopedia of U.S. Paper Money includes historical and technical information unavailable in any other single source. The author's engaging text is supported by more than 1,600 full-color images; extensive auction data; market commentary; more than 26,000 values from a panel of experts coordinated by longtime dealer Tom Denly; multiple grades up to Unc-65; rarities; a selected bibliography; and extensive endnotes for specialized research.

EncUSPaper_p824 "The Whitman Encyclopedia of U.S. Paper Money has real-world advice for making wise purchases in today's market," said Whitman publisher Dennis Tucker. "But it's not just a price guide. It also gives collectors and historians a strong foundation in studying, collecting, grading, attributing, and cataloging paper currency."

In addition to all federal notes, 1861 to date, from $1 to $10,000, the encyclopedia covers Continental Currency, War of 1812 Treasury notes, Fractional Currency, encased postage stamps, star notes, mules, error notes, and more.

Paper Money editor Fred Reed, who wrote the book's foreword, said, "Even collectors with years of study will find much that is new, novel, and neat in Bowers's very readable text. His teachings will make the reader a more astute purchaser of paper money."
