Author Ed Fuhrman and fellow EAC member has shared this information about his new book on U.S. Half Cents
. It looks fantastic, with Bill Eckberg's Half Cent
book there are now a couple of new additions to the early American numismatics that was lacking previously. Ed is a great guy with a lot of knowledge in this particular area of numismatics, I'm sure these new books will soon find a new home in many collector's libraries.
The Half Cent
Handbook (Draped Busts Varieties 1800-1808) is the first in a series of four books I am writing on U.S. Half Cents
The second book is about Classic Head and Braided Hair Varieties and will be released later in 2021. Book three is on the Liberty Cap Varieties. And finally the fourth book will be about Half Cent
I've been collecting coins for 47 years and have been specializing in Half Cents
for the past 25 years. It's been well over 20 years since a book comparable to this has been released. Many new things have been discovered in the past couple of decades. New die states have been discovered. New finest known examples have come to light. The book contains updated information on die varieties, die states, & rarity ratings. It is designed to be the most user-friendly attribution, grading, and cherry picking guide ever produced for Draped Bust Half Cents
Beginners and advanced collectors alike will benefit from the information in this book. My goal with this series of books is to bring Half Cents
into the mainstream. Early copper coins can be a challenge to learn. I find that collectors often feel intimidated by how complex these coins seem to be and tend to shy away from them. This book is designed to lift the veil of mystery that surrounds these coins and to make them fun and accessible to everyone. The book also contains stories about some of my better coin discoveries. The book is an easy and fun read even for the non-numismatist.
The book is 177 pages, hardcover, full color, smyth sewn binding, and top of the line in every way. I spared no expense in the production. They are available directly from me for $105 shipped. For ordering, I can be contacted at: Guitarman68@optonline.net
Or I can be contacted via Facebook with a simple search of my name.
