Editor Rick Irons forwarded this press release with details on his new edition of the Schenkman book on U.S. Civil War Sutler tokens
and scrip. Thanks! The recent Whitman guide to Civil War tokens includes sutlers, and the new edition of Schenkman should be a great deeper dive into
the subject. I haven't seen either, and would welcome independent reviews from E-Sylum readers. -Editor
Civil War Sutler Tokens & Cardboard Scrip
by David E. Schenkman
Second Edition Edited By Richard W. Irons
The 1st Edition of Civil War Sutler Tokens & Cardboard Scrip by David E. Schenkman was published in 1983. After over 30 years I thought
it was time for a 2nd edition and when I found out it wasn’t on Dave Schenkman’s front burner I decided I really wanted to do it.
The book has large color pictures including at least one denomination of every variety (except for a few non-local’s (now called Unidentified)
that haven’t been seen since the 1st edition. There are lots of new varieties as well as additional denominations for known varieties.
Steve Hayden is the Rarities and Valuations Editor – a number of rarities have been changed – both up and down – and there are estimated
valuations for almost all the varieties. Revised rarities and valuations were developed by Steve Hayden from his database of over 3,000 Sutler token
transactions over the last 20 years along with notes kept by Steve Tanenbaum while compiling his extensive collection of Sutler tokens. Also, many of
the pictures are of tokens from the Tanenbaum Collection.
