Ed Fuhrman has published the sixth and final volume in his series on U.S. half cents. Congratulations! Here's the announcement.
The Half Cent Handbook: Ultimate Attribution Guide
I am pleased to announce the release of my sixth and final book in the Half Cent Handbook series; The Ultimate Attribution Guide. This new book has a soft cover with a spiral binding. It is designed as an affordable and lightweight pocket sized guide (6"X9"format) that collectors can carry. It will help collectors of all levels quickly and easily attribute the die variety of any United States Half Cent minted from 1793-1857. Why is attribution important? Very simply it allows you to determine if your coin is a common, scarce, or rare variety. And since rarity is one of the primary factors that will determine the value of your coin, proper attribution is very important!
This book uses photos and specific descriptions to guide you step by step through the process of attributing any Half Cent. The book contains hundreds of clear full color photos to assist you in the attribution process. This is the second of two new books containing supplementary material related to the Half Cent Handbook hardcover series. This is a limited print run so don't delay in ordering. Copies are $50 shipped. At this price they won't last long. For ordering information email Ed Fuhrman at
Here are some sample pages from the book. It looks very useful. The high-resolution color printing available today makes attribution guides orders of magnitude more useful than those of the past. A picture is indeed worth 1,000 words, particularly closeup shots with overlays.
