Side 1 / Side 2
Welcome to another installment in the ongoing CONFEDERATE NUMISMATICA series. Each new release will add a little bit more to the body of published information for
collectors of Confederate numismatic memorabilia.

Here are a few highlights……
• A new heading — "Anti-Confederate" Medalets"
• An extremely rare, crudely made "Bull's Run" medal (three known!)
• Raphael Thian's personal Master Album of Confederate notes
• Three more Davis Flight Medals, two with images (total known now 13)
• A superb condition iron Merrimac armor plate token
• Full color images of the extremely rare ACSTD Membership badge (Association of Confederate Soldiers Tennessee Division)
Then flip the book over and the other side offers the feature article "The Confederate Chemicograph Backs Revisited — and here's a few highlights……
• The first detailed study illustrating the 38 known Chemicograph backs and their reverse varieties, grouped in four separate printings as originally produced 1880 to
• Three of Straker's Developmental Essay proofs
• All six of the original Chemicograph printing plates collected by Philip H. Chase

Every bit as well done as his groundbreaking Part One, this supplement provides a great deal of information and photos on this long-neglected but historically important area of
American numismatics. Included are three more Davis Flight medals, more on the Stonewall Jackson medals, and for bibliophiles, some information on the Thian and Bechtel albums for
Peter's first-ever article cataloging the Chemicograph backs by their four printings is thorough and well illustrated (in color). Some of the related numismatic literature is
discussed and pictured as well. An important addition to any library on U.S. numismatics. -Editor
