On-Line Numismatic Library

Presented by members of the Chicago Coin Club

Many useful and interesting works are found in the libraries of our members. This site will provide a permanent home for scanned works, making them available to a wider audience. This is a new project, and it certainly will evolve and change appearance over time.

Instead of bookmarking a particular book, please bookmark only this page and following the link on this page to a particular item. Although we would like to have permanent URLs, things will change as we try different ways of arranging items.

Recent works are covered by copyright laws.

Perspectives in Numismatics Saul B. Needleman, ed. 1986

Of the many works out of copyright, most have been superceded by newer works which both correct and expand the older work. Here are some works which have been minimally corrected. They provide a snapshot from the past without giving too many false impressions. Obvious typographical errors have been corrected; otherwise only the complete original text and illustrations are presented.

Annual Mint Reports U.S. Treasury Department 1792-1892
A Treatise on the Coinage of the United States Branch Mints A.G. Heaton 1893
