QUERY: THE WHITMAN BLACK BOOK SERIES

Glen McClelland writes:

Fuld, Guide to Civil War Store Card Tokens I am a collector of the Whitman Black Book series of books published in the early 1960s. The problem is I'm not sure how many titles were published. I have contacted Whitman Publishing to see if they had a list, but they said that their records no longer went that far back.

I recently saw that Joel Orosz has a new column in Coin World dedicated to books on numismatics so I contacted him and asked if he knew how many different titles there were. He wrote back saying he had wondered the same thing himself. He also suggested that I contact you to see about publishing a list in The E-Sylum. Attached is a list of the titles I have. Do any of your readers know of other titles?

Below is Glen's list. I could swear this was a topic covered once before, but I was unable to locate it in our archives. -Editor

The number "13" sticks in my head regarding these Whitman Black Books. There are twelve listed above. As a collector of Civil War Tokens I know there are titles for both Patriotics and Store cards. So below I've added that to the list, taking the title (and image above) from a copy in my library. Does this complete the list? -Editor
