"May 31, 2000, marks the six-year
anniversary of my research into Postage Currency pattern coins
and the beginning of my Postage Currency research collection.
The book I have just completed, entitled: "United States Pattern
Postage Currency Coins", a survey of U. S. pattern Postage
Currency 10 cent coins of 1863 and the related issues dated
1868 and 1869, is complete and at the book binders right now
being assembled and bound. The anticipated delivery date to me
is June 12th.
My research has led to many discoveries that I have revealed
for the first time regarding these historic coins and the method
in which they were manufactured. I have disproved many Judd
classifications and have added some new classifications. The
book has 234 pages with more than 100 enlarged, mostly
color photographs of Postage Currency coins.
Due to the very high cost of printing, I will be producing only
110 perfect-bound numbered copies of my book. Forty-four
of the 110 have already been spoken for. The remaining
sixty-six copies are available on a first come, first served basis.
My published price is $145 per copy, but, for E-Sylum readers
I will offer the remaining copies for $125 ppd.for a limited time
