Whitman - A Guide Book Of Barber Silver Coins #794843158

In Stock  $29.95  $23.96 


Volume #20 in Whitman's best-selling Bowers Series covers three classic U.S. coin denominations: the dimes, quarters, and half dollars designed by Charles E. Barber, chief engraver of the U.S. Mint. These classic silver coins were first made in 1892, and their production lasted to the eve of America's entry into World War I. In this colorfully illustrated book, the workhorses of late-19th and early-20th-century American commerce are given the famous Q. David Bowers treatment: insightful study, rich historical background, and detailed data analysis. Bowers the inchDean of American Numismaticsinch and the most published numismatic author of all time lays out everything you need to know to be a smart collector: how to evaluate quality, determine value, understand the market, and make good purchases. You'll learn the backstage goings-on that led to the coins' creation, why they barely made a splash when first issued, and why they weren't mourned when they passed into history. In recent years the scene has changed Barber's silver coinage is among the more popular of U.S. series, with many enthusiastic collectors and students. Bowers provides a wealth of information on each issue: mintages, existing populations, grading standards, values, auction records, keys to collecting, and more. Historical background sets the coins in the broader context of American life from the 1890s through the mid-teens. Hundreds of full-color images, thoughtful study, and Bowers's engaging narrative make this book a treat for anyone interested in our nation's Gilded Age and Progressive Era.
