Another White Whale of mine is this book. It is limited edition, leather bound with a printing of 500. The last time I saw it for sale, it was $1000 on Amazon. I did mange to find it archived! Archive.org has the full issue stored:

Hoping to spur some additional interest - take a look at all the lovely varieties this series produced.

Wow. I only own one, 1870, and had no idea there was so much going on with these. Thanks!

Thanks for that link! I have always liked the 3 cent nickels. I'll check mine to see if I've got anything interesting.

Just took a quick look at mine and noticed a nice double punched date on my 1870. It looks like the 1870B06a variety in the book.

Thanks again!!

Thanks for the link to the PDF book. I have had this on my want list for years now, I passed on copies at $250, I just don't see it being worth that much. Have you checked out Gary Rosner's site? He is a specialist in 3 cent nickels and had/has a lot of Gifford's personal and plate coins from the book for sale on his website over the past few years. https://www.3centnickel.com/
