FIRST EDITION FANTASTIC 1804 DOLLAR CENSUS UPDATE

First Edition Fantastic 1804 Dollar Census Update

Newman Fantastic 1804 Dollar As announced in The E-Sylum on May 24, Joel Orosz and Len Augsburger are constructing a census of copies of the first edition, first printing of Eric P. Newman and Kenneth E. Bressett's The Fantastic 1804 Dollar. To date, 25 copies have been identified, with a total probable population of 42 copies. We've been scouring online resources such as Newman Portal, in addition to our own libraries, but the best information is coming from fellow collectors.

If you have a copy not previously reported to Len or Joel, feel free to forward information to leonard.augsburger@wustl.edu. As noted earlier, first editions can be identified by the table of contents – in the first edition chapter VIII is entitled "The Origin of 1804 Originals," while in subsequent editions chapter VIII is entitled "The Diplomatic Gift Background."
