Secret History of First US Mint tearsheet

Dennis Tucker writes:

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! -Editor

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.
