Krause Publications has released a new edition of the Standard Catalog of United States Paper Money. Here's the press release.
The 29th edition of the Standard Catalog of United States Paper Money is now available from Krause Publications.
This guide is the most comprehensive catalog of U.S. federal currency, and features 750 high-quality color photographs for easy and accurate of identification of notes. The color photographs in this guide also make it a valuable tool for assessing the condition of notes, providing a crisp and clean example to compare against.

-Large and Small Size Currency
-Silver and Gold Certificates
-National Bank Notes by State

George S. Cuhaj is an accomplished collector and researcher who also is the editor of numerous numismatic references, including the Standard Catalog of World Paper Money. William Brandimore brings nearly 20 years of paper money collecting experience to this effort, and has held positions of leadership in state and regional paper money collecting associations.
George is a regular E-Sylum subscriber, and I asked him about working on the book. He writes:
Working on the SCUSPM editions with Bill Brandimore has been a pleasure. Bill does pricing updates (which appear monthly in Bank Note Reporter) and we work together to check the new variety listings (Series, Districts, star notes and printing facilities) for new releases.
Bill has a inquisitive approach to collecting and I think that refreshing.
Throughout the year the price changes are input to the database by Kay Sanders. The other constant in the production of the book is that of our designer, Sandy Carpenter (formerly Morrison) who has worked on all four color editions. It makes for a production knowledge that makes the process go smoothly.
In addition to editorial modifications (the text is run from a data base) I get to enhance the color photographs. We started with photographing Chet Krause's collection before it was sold. For the 30th edition I am working with Douglas Mudd at the ANA to use some of the Beebee collection note images in areas where major types are still lacking.
Through a large amount of hard work in the off-production period, the book has progressed a long way in the past four editions since the last of the 24-year run of 8.5x11 format green hard covered b/w interior editions.
This fall - soon - like around Thanksgiving, a Canadian Coin Book, a 18th Century Coin Book and the German States Book all will be hitting the shelves.
We have been very very busy!
