Hello Everyone. Yesterday's blog was missing the very end of the post. I was transferring the doc. from Microsoft Word and I cut too much. So here is the ending.

Well, you get the idea. The description is pretty good. This helped him cement himself as one of the premier numismatists of the day. This skill was vital back in the day, where now, images eliminate the need for an in-depth description.

Also included- charts GALORE. They are extremely meticulous. They are charts, describing the obverse, and where designs are and where "One Ray of Mullet Points". Only a man like Crosby, lacking photographs, would need to do stuff like that.

For the pattern coin lovers, there is plenty. There are line drawings, and many chapters devoted on the topic. Long descriptions, again.

My final take: the book is great. Mostly for reading. The book is, umm, not the greatest for reference. For that, pay a little for Whitman's guide to Early Coins. Lovers of old coin books, however, will love the old style of writing. I love this book. This is a good book to sit down with.

I could be wrong but it looks to me like this ending was in your original blog? : )

I think you need both the written information as well as the picture. The more modalities you employ simultaneously enhances and reinforces learning.

Looks great. Older books are nice to read. Thanks
