NEW BOOK: U.S. MINT RESTRIKES

Well, it's at least a draft, if not a fully finished book. Author Kevin Flynn sends this note about his latest work in progress. Thanks. Alan Meghrig also forwarded this. -Editor

I have been working on a book on restrikes since I started writing books many years ago. I have covered restrikes in those books I have written, but wanted to focus just on this subject. Over the past year I started to focus on them.

I spent the last six months just on the Mickley restrikes (1804 Large Cent, 1810 Large Cent, 1823 Large Cent, 1811 Half Cent) I covered the archive records, I was lucky that I spent the last year in Boston and was able to research the Stickney papers, found other cool relevant letters also, have gone through most of the auction catalogues for this period, and collecting any other information relevant. I also read all information that has been printed on the Mickley restrikes. I also documented all die stages for each of these varieties and present clear photos on these with detailed descriptions.

Not sure how long it will take me to complete a book on all restrikes so I figured it would be better to post as I go.

Alan from CoinZip was good enough to let me post it there, its 42 pages, below is the link. Hope you enjoy.
