Nancy Oliver and Richard Kelly have revised and reprinted all six of their books on U.S. Mint history. That's great news! Here's the announcement.
Nancy Oliver and Richard Kelly, co-authors of the Numismatic Chronicles column in The Numismatist, have revised and reprinted all six of their books. They lost their home and all of their belongings to the 2018 Paradise, Ca, fire. However, a recently discovered USB drive containing all the book files (found in a surviving safe deposit box) has made recovery, revision, and reprinting possible. The following books have been updated and limited copies are available for purchase:
A Mighty Fortress - the Stories Behind the 2nd San Francisco Mint.
Sentiments and Aspirations of a 19th Century Tradesman (Joseph Breck Harmstead - Coiner) - a Biography.
Gold in His Veins - the Story of John Daggett (SF mint Supt & the 1894 S Dime).
Superintendents of the 1st and 2nd San Francisco Mints - 16 Biographical Sketches.
The Inconspicuous Gold Rush Mint - the 1st San Francisco Mint's history.
A Twisted Tale of Cover-Up and Deceit - the Suspects, the Concealment, and the Unearthing of the Gold Stolen from the 1st San Francisco Mint in 1857.
