New from Zyrus Press, Inc. of Irvine, Calif., is the third edition of Douglas Winter’s Gold Coins of the Charlotte Mint 1838-1861.
Winter, who is regarded as one of the leading industry experts in U.S. branch mint gold coins, has completely updated his book by implementing changes, additions and corrections to reflect shifting conditions in the market and newly discovered information.
High quality full color photos illustrate every coin and the improved die variety section now has close-up images of many important varieties. Layout designs similar to Winter’s previously released New Orleans and Dahlonega Mint books are used in this edition.
All figures on population, rarity rankings, total values by grade and significant examples have been updated to reflect the latest market information available, including a complete rarity summary chart at the end of each chapter.
Two chapters about the history of the Charlotte Mint are included, and Winter offers personal tips and strategies on how to collect “C” Mint gold coins.
Jeff Ambio, author of the Strategy Guide series and a recognized numismatic expert, calls this edition “a definitive study that belongs in the library of all serious numismatic researchers and Southern gold experts.”
This third edition of Gold Coins of the Charlotte Mint is a 7 by 10 paperback, 196 pages in length with more than 150 color images.
It may be obtained from bookstores nationwide, online at www.Amazon.com or at local coin shops.
