Next up are five new books and reviews of Chris Faulkner's book on the Prince Edward Island Holey Dollars and a new book on French coin weights and scales.
Other topics include powdered metallurgy, Cuban numismatics, the British Museum's holdings of American coins and medals, the medallic art of João Duarte and copyrighted images on legal tender coins.
To learn more about David Proskey’s annotated copy of Haseltine, Clyde Barrow's "Death Car Coin", die sinker E. R. Williamson of Minneapolis, George Washington's Patowmack Company, gundalows, gorgets, bugs, snakes, toads and snails, read on.
Have a great week, everyone!
