The latest issue of The Asylum, the journal of the Numismatic Bibliomania Society (NBS) has an advertisement inside the back cover offering for $10.00 (plus $5.00 shipping to U.S. addresses) the second (current) edition Q. David Bowers book, The Encyclopedia of United States Silver Dollars 1794 to 1803. The list price per Stack’s is $49.97. I think I paid a $40.00 “pre-order price” for my first copy. If you’ve any interest in the learning more about the early dollars or adding this book to your Numismatic Library this is a pretty good deal! I don’t see that this offer was limited to members of NBS, and the “Call to Order” phone number is listed as 866-811-1804.
Also offered at the same pricing level are three other books by Q. David Bowers. Coins and Collectors, Golden Anniversary Issue, The 1822 Gold Half Eagle: Story of a Rarity, and Treasures from the D. Brent Pogue Rare Coin Cabinet.
There is a limit of 2 copies of each book per address. You’ll need to confirm details with Stack’s – I’m just reporting these offers to fellow JR News readers who might not have been aware of this offer.
Gerry Fortin, Jim Matthews, and I will have Tables 535 and 634 at the 2019 FUN Convention. Please stop by if you are attending the show.
