Peter Bertram's new book on Confederate Numismatica has been printed and is now available for sale. -Editor
CONFEDERATE NUMISMATICA - Part 1
Forerunners through 1889 - Tokens, Politicals, Coins, Currency, Medals, Badges and Ribbons With Historical Notes
- 15+ Breckinridge 1860 politicals not listed in Sullivan!
- 50+ listings of “Wealth of the South” mulings from two Civil War era auction catalogs (some strange ones!).
- Illustrated history of the Confederate Cent and all its descendants from 1861-2005.
- How to identify the seven 1861-O Half Dollar varieties struck under Confederate authority.
- A capsule history of Confederate currency and images of all 72 type notes.
- Images of all 10 currently known Davis Flight Medals along with a short history of the Confederacy’s last days to put them in
- A detailed listing of Confederate ladder badges identified by Type Numbers!
- An old 2002 sold out booklet: Fake Confederate ID Discs republished in the End Notes.
- And much more - many previously unpublished images, lots of history, etc.
The above list is just a sampling of the great material compiled here, in what to my knowledge is the first such comprehensive survey of
Confederate numismatic material ever published (some of which were only discovered just this year; others surfaced earlier in The
E-Sylum). Where else can you find information in one volume on the Arnold & Cooley and J B Schiller counterstamps, United South
tokens, Confederate "Half Dimes", Confederate Sutler tokens, Stonewall Jackson medals, David Guard medals, Davis Flight medals,
postwar medals and Veterans' badges, and known fakes? -Editor

This book fills a huge hole in the literature of American numismatics, and I expect to see a cloud of dust from the stampede of smart
E-Sylum readers ordering their copies. Congratulations to Peter on his tireless efforts to pull all of this information together
into one handy volume. -Editor
