Dave Bowers is hard at work on multiple writing projects, and he sent the following requests for assistance from E-Sylum
readers. Can anyone help? -Editor
I am in the midst of two manuscripts for Whitman Publishing LLC: A Guide Book of Liberty Seated Coins and A Guide Book of Barber Silver
Coins. I have drawn upon research and notes dating back many years.
To illustrate each date, mintmark, and major variety, I welcome hearing from anyone with a file of pictures. I desire high-resolution images of
brilliant or lightly toned coins with nice eye appeal and without any certification service tabs intruding into the edges. Credit will be given in
the Acknowledgements section to anyone helping. Owners of the coins will have the cachet of having their pieces be “Whitman plate coins” in books
that will be widely circulated and for a long time.
Each volume, the Liberty Seated study in particular, will have a lot of interesting and, I hope, very useful information that has never been
published in book form before. It is my desire that anyone reading either book will enjoy the experience and gain a comprehensive knowledge of the
series from the era of coinage down to modern aspects such as popularity, grading, and market conditions.
A nod goes to the Liberty Seated Coin Club and the Barber Coin Collectors’ Society and their publications as well as to each of the authors who
has written specialized books on various series. These are the foundation stones of the field.
The above said, thank you for any ideas, photographs, and other help for the two books. My best wishes for a happy, healthy, prosperous, and
numismatically enjoyable New Year.
