JAMES CRAWFORD MASTER OF THE MINT AT CARSON CITY-A SHORT FULL LIFE

My paperback copy here is in "NEW" condition. Still has the original shrink wrap. Currently sold out.

Perhaps you have heard of the Carson City Mint, Nevada s historic coin factory. Almost a century and a quarter ago this western mint at the base of Nevada s celebrated Comstock Lode banged out silver dollars and a host of other denominations, including gold coins, which today have become some of the most cherished in the field of numismatics (the study of coin collecting). In 2004, a silver dime dated 1873 bearing the legendary CC mintmark, sold for $1 million. Yet, although the coins have gained in notoriety, the men who made them passed into obscurity many years ago. However, according to Reno coin dealer Rusty Goe, the award-winning author of 2004 s The Mint on Carson Street, at least one of these men deserves a tribute. In James Crawford: Master of the Mint at Carson City A Short Full Life, published in July 2007, Goe resurrects the life of the man who served as the fourth superintendent of the Carson City Mint from 1874 to 1885, and who was credited with overseeing the striking of eighty-five percent of all the coins ever produced at that institution. The book provides a panoramic view of the sweeping history of Nevada's connection to California's Gold Rush era; with an in-depth look into life in the Silver State's northwestern region from 1863 to 1885. Filled with never-before-presented facts about James Crawford and the Carson City Mint, this 650-page book is linked with stories about some of Nevada's most prominent historical figures and many contemporary events occurring in the United States as well as hundreds of references to coins struck at the Carson City Mint.

About this product

Synopsis
Carson City coin specialist Rusty Goe has just released his new book, 'The Mint on Carson Street'. Shoppers in the author's local coin store expressed delight and wonderment when the book was unveiled on Saturday December 20, 2003. Never before has a book been written on the Carson City Mint that not only provides the history of the venerable institution, but also a study of all the coins minted there, with profiles of the many collectors who have come to adore them during the past century or more. It was the author's goal to bring the legacy of this Nevada coinage facility to life by interweaving stories of everyone and everything even closely related to it. This goal has been achieved, in living colour. Whether readers are curious about the activities leading up to the establishment of the Carson City Mint, or the provocation of its closing, they will not be disappointed. Collectors wishing to hear about $500,000 'CC' dimes, or how many of any of the 111 dates and denomination produced at Carson City are estimated to survive, will have well documented statistics at their fingertips. History buffs will be intrigued by the well chosen events discussed in each chapter, detailing the background of Nevada's emergence as a state to be reckoned with, as well as what was happening on a national level during the era the Carson City Mint was in operation. Even introductory coverage of the battle over monetary standards during the late 19th century is interwoven into the narrative. How and why the Carson City Mint's survival hinged on the outcome of whose monetary policies were adopted at the time are explained in the context of the central theme of the book. Silverites in Nevada and other mineral rich states were leading the charge to get the nation back on a silver standard, which would have been advantageous for the mint located in the 'Silver State'. The drama of this battle spanned the entire lifetime of the Carson Mint's years of operation. Readers will be drawn to the biographical sketches portrayed in this massive 537 page volume. Familiar names such as Mark Twain and President Grover Cleveland are joined by so many other fascinating ones such as Carson City founder Abraham Curry; Nevada senators John Percival Jones and William M. Stewart; Carson Mint superintendents James Crawford, H F Rice and Annie Martin; Nevada Judge Clark Guild; collectors Dr S L Lee, Harold M Budd, and E A Carson, and distinguished Nevada developer Norman Biltz. Dozens of other interesting people who were in some way connected to the epic saga of the Carson City Mint, or were of notable reputation during its years of operation are profiled as well. Just reading about some of these individuals will surely inspire further exploration.
In what is truly an "Enthusiast's Guide" Rusty Goe shares his own love for and fascination with the Carson City Mint and the III coin issues minted there between 1870 and 1893. This famous and historic western mint and its coins have been written about many times before, but this book is not merely a study of Carson City Mint coins or a list of dates, facts, and figures relating the history of the mint. Instead, this book attempts to bring the reader back in time to the days of the Comstock Lode in northwestern Nevada. The first four chapters offer a detailed and yet highly readable history of the mint, including not only the "local" happenings around Carson City, but also the events that took place in San Francisco, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and other locations, both domestic and international, which played such an important role in the development, life, and eventual demise of the mint on Carson Street. You will also become acquainted with the people who were vital to the mint, including its founder, Abe Curry, as well as mint personnel, politicians, bankers, and other citizens.
Talks about the Carson City Mint. This book explains how and why the Carson City Mint's survival hinged on the outcome of whose monetary policies were adopted at the time.

This book recently received the Double Crown of numismatic literature and was awarded Book of the Year honors by the Numismatic Literary Guild and the Professional Numismatics Guild.
