In Yankee Doodle's Pocket the Myth, Magic and Politics of Money in Early America

Author, Will Nipper

1st edition published by Bowmanstone Press 2008

576 pages Illustrated in full color, hardbound

A great introduction to early American Colonial coinage,
is a lavish work of love encompassing the American colonial coin series that celebrates the history of colonial coins, tokens, and currency both within the traditional series and to the outermost fringes of the incidentals that Yankee Doodles sweated for, saved and spent.

Fully illustrated on most every one of the 568 pages with coins from the author.s vast collection, Will painstakingly extends his pictures with line drawings of uncollectable rarities to complete the series. Drawing from current sources of numismatic inquiry

From forms of barter, to jetons, coin weights, and through the complex Latin American series down to macaroni pieces in Yankee doodles pocket, it is all here. Covering money of North America during the first three hundred years before the first Federal coin, and includes those too, down to 1840 when mass production began to limit the quirks of die cutters and cookie cutter coins began to require magnifying glasses to discern their variety.

Great attention to the distinctive varieties of States coppers and distinguishing characteristics of a wide range of other series are provided in attribution guides in the appendices that make this work a must for the serious numismatist.

A long list of references and end notes complete the work as a scholarly tome, yet it is eminently readable and enjoyable in sound bites for each extended coin type where the juicy historical relevance and human interest lay. Will Nipper has spent four decades collecting and studying the coins of early America and it shows. Buy it - you'll like it.
