Help us update the Numismatic Reference List!

Jake, do you plan to incorporate the list I sent you before this was up?

Yes, I was planning to combine your list with what we came up with here into one master list, probably after World's Fair of Money. 

Even though I still have it, do you want to go ahead and post it here?

Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold and Silver Commemorative Coins by Walter Breen and Anthony Swiatek is one of my all time favorites!

I have been working on a list of United States Numismatic Literature as a project with another collector over at Coin Community Forums. I tried posting it here, but it is much too large, so I broke it down, yet the posts still won't show. I'd be happy to email it to one of the moderators here for posting, as I believe it would be very helpful.
