E-Sylum reader Oded Paz submitted this release about a new booklet on an interesting and unusual numismatic topic: "pop out" or "repousse" coins.
A new booklet has just been published on Pop-Out Coins, also known as Repoussé, Pop-Up and Pushed-Up Coins. The first-edition of the booklet is limited to only 100 copies!
It contains the FIRST and ONLY available information on these beautiful off-the-beaten-path artistic & numismatic creations.
This booklet was written by Robert (Stumpy) Stump, who passed away a few days after the book was sent to print. It was written in the hopes of shedding some light on this mysterious, interesting and little known part of numismatics and introducing it to new collectors and fans.
In the Preface, Bob Writes: "Taking advice from all the old time collectors I have known "Buy the book, and then buy the coin". I went on the internet to find a book and other information on the subject. To my surprise there was almost nothing available... I thought how can this be? Such a beautiful art form and nothing is much known about them?".
Most numismatist have probably seen Miss Liberty pop-outs, as well as a few Presidents, with Lincoln being the most common, but there are many more pop-outs that show fabulous images, such as animals, Indians, political, religious, Fraternal clubs, Foreign themes, etc. - all detailed and pictured in this booklet.
Many pop-outs were made into jewelry, such as fobs, rings, pins, brooches, pendants, cuff links, etc.
The 83-page fully-color spiral-bound booklet includes a plethora of information that is known only to very few and never compiled into any publication whatsoever. It includes information regarding the making of these work of art, replicas & forgeries, myths & legends, cleaning & storing, a comprehensive research and findings regarding their patents & designs, and most important - the first ever pictured price guide to Pop-Outs!
The book is being sold by Bob's friend and fellow pop-ups collector, Oded Paz, for $20 (incl. S&H in the USA). For orders, email Oded at email@example.com, or send cash, checks or money orders to: Oded Paz, P.O.Box 633, Arco, ID 83213-0633
