Harry Salyards has produced a special deluxe edition of his new book on early silver dollars.
Eagle Poised on a Bank of Clouds: The United States Silver Dollars of 1795-1798
The new Standard Work on the series. With historical background and contemporary context,
comprehensive discussion of each die marriage, enlarged high-resolution images of each die
state, the first attempt at a true Condition Census, and tips on putting together a decent collection
of these inherently expensive coins by focusing on nuances of strike, die wear, and variations in
depth of design hubbing from one variety to the next.
Available in a sewn hardcover binding in
blue cloth, with dust jacket, for $145 postpaid. Also produced in a limited edition of 10 copies
hand-bound by the Harcourt Bindery, Boston, in green half morocco, marbled boards, spine
decorated in gilt with five raised bands. Only five copies remain available, at $750 postpaid.
