6 posts in this topic



I just picked up more stuff yesterday:


1. Briggs' L.S. Quarters book (1991), hard cover, fine.

2. Norweb I,II,III auction catalogs by Bowers and Merena (1987, 1988, 1988), VF.

3. Garrett I,II,III,IV auction catalogs by Bowers and Ruddy (1979, 1980, 1980, 1981), strong F.


I still need to pick up the following:


1. The Fairfield auction catalog (recommended by Coin-beast).

2. The Bass Sylloge, by QDB (recommended by DWL).

3. Kagin's book on Territorial Gold (also recommended by DWL).

I am not in posession of the catolog, but my guess is "no." The book goes through each denomination and just lists the Types, and gives size, fineness, designer, and dates, with no real additional information.

I have Stack's Type book myself. It is interesting how he chooses to break Type in each denomination and the coin pictures are great too.


I also purchased a copy of the Bass Syllogy, by DQB. It is an interesting read if you are a gold collector. The coin pictures will blow your socks off, as well.

In answer to EVP's question, the type coin book by Norman Stack was illustrated with the coins from his personal type collection.
