The latest addition to the Newman Numismatic Portal is Andrew Pollock's 1995 book on U.S. gold coin varieties. Project Coordinator Len Augsburger provided the following report.
Newman Portal Adds Andrew Pollock's United States Gold Coinage Die Varieties 1795-1834
With the kind permission of Andrew W. Pollock III, Newman Portal has scanned and posted his volume United States Gold Coinage Die Varieties 1795-1834 (privately published, 1995). While the standard reference for die variety attributions is now the 2006 work Early U.S. Gold Coin Varieties, 1795-1834, by John Dannreuther and Harry W. Bass, Jr., specialists will find the Pollock work useful for the condition censes that are provided on a per variety basis. Pollock notes a
1,000+ catalogue survey, not surprising given the extensive listings.
