Author Mark Ferguson forwarded this press
release about his upcoming new book on the 1804 Dollar.
New discoveries about the famed 1804
Dollar will be announced at 6:00 pm on Thursday, April 24th at
the Central States Numismatic Society convention by professional
numismatist and researcher Mark Ferguson during a presentation
for the release of his new book, The Dollar of 1804 – The U.S.
Mint’s Hidden Secret. Ferguson will dispel age-old myths
about the 1804 Dollar, "The King of American Coins," by
exhibiting new evidence from the 1880s and earlier, some
Based on the chronicles of the true story of the Dexter 1804
Dollar, The Dollar of 1804 – The U.S. Mint’s Hidden
Secret, reveals newly discovered facts, not only about the
Dexter Dollar, but about other 1804 Dollars as well. Ferguson’s
research quest began in 1989 with his discovery and acquisition
of a work of art, circa 1887, commissioned by James Vila Dexter
himself in commemoration of the 1804 Dollar he purchased in 1885
for a record price at that time. A century later, in 1989, the
Dexter Dollar set another world record as the very first coin to
sell at public auction for the $1 million dollar level -
Ferguson published limited edition prints of J. V. Dexter’s
1887 artwork, and in conjunction with SilverTowne and NGC has
produced silver replicas of the 1804 Dollar encapsulated by NGC.
The book release presentation will take place at the Central
States Numismatic Society convention at 6:00 pm on Thursday,
April 24th in room "Nirvana C." A question and answer session and
book signing will follow Ferguson’s presentation.
Those in attendance who register will be entered into a
drawing for a package consisting of a limited edition print of
James V. Dexter’s 1887 work of art, an autographed copy of the
new book, The Dollar of 1804 – The U.S. Mint’s Hidden
Secret, an 1804 Dollar silver replica encapsulated by NGC,
and other bonuses all valued at $495.00. Interested persons who
are unable to attend may register online at www.1804Dollar.com
for a drawing of an autographed book and an NGC encapsulated

I will only have a soft cover edition available at Central
States. The retail price is $29.95. I plan on publishing a hard
