“The Lovett Cent; a Confederate Story” is about the Confederate cent. There are false and misleading stories about the cent and its maker Robert Lovett, Jr. Many of the stories came from inaccurate statements made by 19th century coin dealer John Haseltine. There are many questions about who contacted Lovett, and his Southern connections. Was Bailey & Co. involved? How many coining dies were made? Were coins and dies delivered? These questions and others are answered. Restrikes were made by John Haseltine in 1874. Robert Bashlow made restrikes in 1961/1962. Fake, fantasy, replica, and novelty Confederate cents are presented. Lovett was a talented engraver and die sinker in Philadelphia. He did work for Bailey & Co., and created tokens for them. He made tokens and medals for businesses, organizations, and governments. Numismatist and Civil War buffs will find the book interesting, which is academic, and based on several years research. There are footnotes, sidebar notes, and 141 images.
