FS: Large Numismatic Library Covering the Range of U.S. Coinage - Prices Reduced

7 posts in this topic

Offered below is the listing of a numismatic library, containing well in excess of 50 separate publications, focusing on subjects ranging from Vermont Coppers to Walking Liberty Halves. The sale is particularly strong in colonial and early American numismatics, with many specialty books in those subject areas. Also found below are numerous books and catalogs which rarely appear on the market. This sale is sure to present an exciting opportunity to anyone seeking to add to their numismatic knowledge, whether their library is just starting out or fills numerous rooms!


Because of the number of books for sale, it would have been impractical to provide a description and photograph for each, as is normally found in my listings. I've provided the titles and prices - should you find yourself interested in one... or twenty of the below books and in need of pictures or further information, please send me a PM. I'm happy to provide more complete descriptions on an as-needed basis.
