In 1992, the first edition of Doug Winter’s book Gold Coins of the New Orleans Mint: 1839-1909 was published. It popularized these under-appreciated coins and introduced many new collectors to the field. In almost two decades, much has changed in the New Orleans gold market. Newly discovered hoards have changed the rarity levels of certain dates while others remain very difficult to locate. Doug Winter, the author of ten other books on United States gold coinage and the preeminent expert on 19th century branch mint issues, has produced a masterpiece that makes New Orleans gold coinage readily accessible to the beginner or the expert.
This book contains all new information that cannot be found anywhere else and is complimented by hundreds of beautiful color photos. Do you want to know which New Orleans eagle is the rarest in high grades? How about the die characteristics for a certain quarter eagle for this mint? Or what about the all-time auction record for a specific New Orleans half eagle? Destined to become the standard reference book on this series, you’ll find all this information and more in Doug Winter’s Gold Coins of the New Orleans Mint: 1839-1909.
