In addition to The U.S. Mint and Coinage
. I also have these other Taxay-penned volumes in my library - I would recommend all of them.
- Scott's Comprehensive Catalogue and Encyclopedia of U.S. Coins 1971
- Counterfeit, Mis-struck, And Unofficial U.S. Coins: A Guide For The Detection Of Cast and Struck Counterfeits, Electrotypes, and Altered Coins
- An Illustrated History of U. S. Commemorative Coinage
- Money of the American Indians and Other Primitive Currencies of the Americas
Note: While a tremendous amount of new information has come to light regarding counterfeit coins since Taxay's Counterfeit
volume was published in 1963, its core lessons are still valid and the history of famous counterfeits and unofficial US coins
included is very interesting and a worthwhile read!
