Peter Jones Contributes Eight Titles to Newman Portal
The works of author Peter D. Jones, MD are now available with full-view on Newman Portal, courtesy of the author. Peter casts a wide net, with subjects ranging from early American numismatics to French paper money and U.S. commemorative issues. Ken Bressett's remarks from the Foreword of Commemorative Coin Tales (2018) are equally applicable to all of Jones' works:
What you are about to see is one man's journey into the fascinating world of numismatics. His passion for the subject is obvious, and likely infectious. His intent in writing this account is to inspire and pass on to his family some of the reasons he has dedicated part of his busy life to the study and collecting of these very special coins.
