And here's a teaser about another Whitman book, planned for release early next year.

Our publisher has posted the tear sheet on the PCGS US coin forum.

The Secret History of the First U.S. Mint, by Joel Orosz and Len Augsburger, will answer all your questions --- and more.
You'll be able to buy the book in January 2011.
What a great title! One edit I'd make in the blurbs, though. Orosz and Augsburger aren't like History Detectives; they are History Detectives. A great deal of work over a number of years has gone into the making of this book. I'm looking forward to it!
Joel Orosz adds:
The title came out Whitman's marketing department, but since it was evocative of Walter Breen's "Secret History of the Gobrecht Coinage," Len and I kinda liked it.
