The second edition of Ken Berger's book about Philippine currency from the Japanese occupation in World War II has been published. Congratulations!
Dr. Ken Berger recently updated his book about Philippine currency circulation during the Japanese occupation in World War II, Philippine
Emergency Notes: Counterstamped, Signed & Initialed (CSI) - Cebu Province (Second Edition). This update is the product of three years of scholarly
research and was only made possible through an Author’s Grant from the Central States Numismatic Society.
The book is 35% larger than the first edition. It has greatly expanded upon the history behind these notes and includes the first extensive analysis of the
200K note Museo Sugbo (Cebu Provincial Museum) collection. This analysis was conducted in September/October 2017 by a team of six researchers led by Dr.
Berger. The book also has a section that includes the first study undertaken on Mindanao CSI notes. It is the most extensive and detailed examination of the
1941 and 1942 Cebu and Mindanao Emergency Currency ever compiled, along with the counterstamps, signatures (& other script) and initials which are found on
many of them.
The book has an initial printing of only 100 copies. It consists of 289 pages, along with a CD which contains color scans of all the notes and color
pictures that appear in the book.
The world-renowned Philippine numismatics specialist, Neil Shafer, says “To have been able to bring this subject to its present state of perfection is a
virtually unbelievable achievement; if a medal were to be given for accomplishing such an outstanding numismatic work, Ken would have to be among the first in
line. Congratulations for this outstanding volume.”
Ray Czahor of Cookie Jar Collectibles, a well-known dealer and collector of Philippine numismatics, has stated, “All collectors of guerilla/emergency notes
need this catalog to complete their library.”
The cost of the book is $30.00 plus $5.00 P&H. If so desired, a copy of the first edition can be included for an additional $6.00. Copies may be
obtained from either the author at email@example.com or P.O. Box 90314, San Diego, CA 92169, or from Ray Czahor of Cookie Jar Collectibles at
