RECOMMENDED U.S. COPPER TITLES
Carl Honore "would like to recommend two volumes to collectors of early American copper. These are two anthologies. The first is entitled United States Large Cents 1793-1857 and edited by Warren Lapp and Herb Silberman.… There is information on anything and everything from uses and abuses of large cents … to "A Visit To The Mint, in 1812".
The second recommended volume is Early American Copper Anthology published by Sanford Durst. This book contains the collected works of Sylvester Crosby, Frossard and Hays, S. Chapman, Clapp and Newcomb, and ends with an essay on the Oscar Pearl collection by Abe Kosoff. The collector can appreciate the work of Sheldon-Breen-Paschal more by reading the works of their predecessors."
