PRICE LIST: HOLABIRD-KAGIN SUMMER 2009 MINT STATE PIONEER MINOR COINAGE

Holabird-Kagin, Mint State Pioneer Minor Coinage Fred Holabird sent me a copy of the Holabird-Kagin Americana Summer 2009 fixed price list of pioneer tokens. While fundamentally a marketing document, the production values are high - this 168-page perfect bound softcover catalog makes a respectable book. With its focus on mint state tokens, the color photographs are attractive. Organized alphabetically by state and town, it's easy to find tokens by location, but there is no index of merchant names.

There is no shortage of obscure town names, which makes for interesting reading even if one is not a collector of these tokens: Alakunuk "wrong way", Alaska, Bisbee (and of course, Tombstone), Arizona, Susanville, California, Owyhee and Winnemucca, Nevada.

In the Introduction I learned about the Anillo Restrikes, uniface restrikes of tokens from original dies made by Anillo Industries in Orange, California in 1968.
