Item #: CNW127

 Discontinued

Description

Using long-untouched correspondence, drawings and models by sculptors Hermon MacNeil, Adolph Weinman, Albin Polasek and Anthony de Francisci, author Roger Burdette chronicles the origin, design and striking of American coins from 1916-1921. The story takes the reader from the initial consultation with the Commission of Fine Arts through a maze of bureaucratic confusion, interference by vending machine companies and the press, last minute design alterations to final production. With his extensive use of original source material and illustrations the author has produced what is sure to become the standard reference on this important period of American coinage. [hardcover, 350 pages, b&w photos]...

Received the NLG "Book-of-the-Year" award in 2006!
