On February 13, 2014 CoinWeek published an announcement of the availability of supplements to the classic Van Allen-Mallis book on Morgan and Peace Dollars.
LeRoy Van Allen, the only surviving member of the numismatic research and writing partnership that spawned generations of Morgan and Peace dollar variety collectors, has published two supplements to the 1997 Fourth Edition of the Comprehensive Catalog and Encyclopedia of Morgan and Peace Dollars.
The first supplement, covering the Peace dollar series (1921-1935), spans 57 pages and contains 241 photos of coins discovered or revised in 2012 and 2013, when interest in the series was rekindled, mostly due to research and new discoveries by Dr. David Close, who was responsible for nearly 200 of the new listings.
The Peace dollar supplement may be purchased at a cost of $9 plus $3 postage and handling directly from Van Allen at:
Leroy Van Allen PO Box 196 Sidney, OH 45365
Released at the same time is Van Allen’s New VAM Varieties of Morgan Dollars which covers all discoveries within the Morgan dollar series from 1992 through December 2013.
The update contains 146 pages and 363 photographs of coins that were listed in 2013.
The Morgan dollar supplement is $12 plus $3 for postage and handling. Both books may be bought for $19 and $6 for postage and handling.
