NEW BOOK: A FORGOTTEN NICKEL

Last week I discussed a couple articles seen in recent numismatic periodicals. I wanted to also say something about Jeff Reichenberger's nice article in The Numismatist, done in collaboration with Eric Newman. As it turns out, Jeff forwarded this note, making available a monograph which expands on that article. Great idea! -Editor

I have self-published a monograph entitled, "A Forgotten Nickel... and its companions" . With the incomparable contributions of Eric P. Newman, it is a study of the three 1913 Buffalo nickels that originally accompanied the five famous 1913 Liberty nickels. An article of the same name, which was derived from this monograph, is in the current (September 2011) issue of The Numismatist.

I've used the full manuscript for the monograph, which is considerably longer and more detailed, with source notes, coin descriptions, larger images, hypotheses, etc. It consists of twelve 8.5 x 11 pages folded and saddle-stitched in booklet form. I believe it may be of interest to Buffalo Nickel enthusiasts as well as those who can't get enough of the 1913 nickel saga, and it makes a nice companion to some of the source books listed. I'm asking $8 postpaid. Please send your request to: jkreichenberger@hotmail.com

All the photos I took for the project are available for authors or researchers for the asking, courtesy of Eric and myself. Contact me if you are interested.

Many thanks to Jeff and Eric for making these images available. I'm glad to see the monograph is being published, and encourage all U.S. numismatists to get a copy for their libraries. It will be a great companion to that enjoyable book, Million Dollar Nickels. -Editor
