The Copper Coins of Vermont and Interrelated Issues 1783-1788
By Q. David Bowers
A Rarity is Created!
Perhaps one you’d like to own, especially if you like numismatic history!
It was as a teenager in the 1950s that Dave Bowers began studying and collecting the 1785-1788 copper coins issued by the Republic of
Vermont (which did not become a state until 1791). From then down to today he has bought, sold, and collected many pieces, including those our firm
has handled in “name” collections.
Dave has kept a file of interesting anecdotes, stories, historical accounts, and more. He has combined these with a definitive text on all 39
different Vermont die combinations with technical aspects, rarity, and more. The Copper Coins of Vermont and Interrelated Issues 1783-1788 is
guaranteed not only to be filled with important information, but to be a “good read” as well. The foreword is by Ray Williams, well known in the
field of early American coins.
As to the rarity of the book, this is a limited-edition, with a run of just 500 copies. The book is 176 pages, large 8½ by 11 inches in size,
quality hardbound, and in full color. Each will have a special numbered bookplate (1 to 500) signed by Dave. Shipment is expected in August.
