More than 20 years after its original release, the Standard Catalog of® United States Obsolete Bank Notes 1782-1866 is once again available from Krause Publications, now as a four-CD set.
With copies of the original four-book set nearly impossible to find and very costly to acquire, a large number of collectors have been without this all-inclusive and exceptionally detailed resource – until now. In an attempt to bring James A. Haxby’s renowned reference to more fans of U.S. bank notes, the numismatics team at Krause Publications has put together this four-CD set, priced at $249.99.
“We are very excited to release the Haxby work in digital form,” said Scott Tappa, numismatics publisher at Krause Publications. “If you own the four-book set, we hope these discs help you enjoy obsolete bank notes in an entirely different way. If this is your introduction to the work, prepare yourself for hours and hours of enjoyment and education.”
This modern-version reissue of Haxby’s history-making work includes the entire volume in four Mac and PC-compatible CDs. While much has changed in the world and the hobby since this premiere resource was first published, and many of the prices may fall outside what a collector could expect to find in today’s market, there is no substitute for the historical details and identifying details found in the standard resource U.S. obsolete bank notes.
Arranged alphabetically by state/territory and organized by bank name and cross referenced with bank branches, each section includes engraver imprint details, versions of notes, date of issue and hundreds of detailed photographs. The CD-pdf format allows users to search each disc using keywords or a handy index, and enables users to enlarge the pages up to 400 percent to provide a closer view of details and descriptions of notes. Plus, collectors can print select pages of listings, or notes by state to take to shows or club meetings.
In addition to this four-CD set, look for electronic downloadable pdfs of single states from the Standard Catalog of® United States Obsolete Bank Notes coming soon to ShopNumismaster.com.
