The latest additions to the Newman Numismatic Portal are books authored by Doug Winter. Project Coordinator Len Augsburger provided the following report.
Courtesy of Doug Winter, a number of volumes on U.S. gold coins are now available on Newman Portal. Winter has done much to popularize collecting of
rare and better-date 19th century U.S. gold, and a good deal of his knowledge has been distilled into these books. While an Eliasberg-like quest of collecting
the entire series is out of reach of most, there are many approaches to collecting gold coins that need not require filling every hole in one's double eagle
Collecting by branch mint is one popular approach, and indeed, this is a notion that Winter reinforces by publishing texts on a branch mint basis. New
Orleans Gold Coins, 1839-1909, for example, discusses the New Orleans series on a date and mintmark basis, exploring rarity profiles, striking
characteristics, and die varieties for each issue. Anyone interested in beginning a collection of similar coins will do well to consult these works.
1850-O $20 NGC AU53 from Newman V (Heritage Auctions, 11/2014, lot 3335, realized $12,925).
