This came from this weeks E-SYLUM




Saul Teichman writes: "A new 8th edition of the Judd book

will be coming out at the ANA convention. For more

information, see:




From the web page: "The 8th Edition of the Judd book is

being produced by our friends at Whitman Publishing and

should be available by the 2003 ANA convention. The

price for the new edition will be $29.95.


This new edition has been completely reformatted to make

it more usable.


Dave Bowers, with the help of Saul Teichman and others,

including the core of the uspatterns.com membership, has

completely revised the text, adding much new information.

Many more images are also included."


Chris Karstedt of American Numismatic Rarities sent

some additional information about the book's pre-publication



"In recent months, a number of America's best known

scholars and dealers have been working apace in the

creation of a magnificent new book on pattern coins, to be

known as the "Judd 8th edition", but mostly in name only.

Dave Bowers has virtually completely rewritten the text from

1792 to the latest patterns of modern times; Robert Hughes

and his consultants have created estimated market values

in three grades plus auction prices for most of the varieties;

and Saul Teichman and others have presented historical

research and die details."


"This new and expanded edition includes:

Price updates

Population reports

Judd identification numbers

Rarity numbers

Auction appearances

Full-color hardbound cover

Thanks Chris! Isn't this quite a bit cheaper than the previous edition? Have to get a copy!

Thanks, Chris. I agree with Hoot in that I seem to remember the older edition costing substantially more than this newer, updated book.
