Now with every illustration in color. This landmark work is the standard reference on American currency since 1953, acknowledged as the most comprehensive and universally recognized guide on the subject, illustrating and valuating all types of United States paper money. From the first year of Federal paper money, 1861, to date, both sides of all currency, from 3 cents to $100,000 are illustrated and accompanied by text listing, describing and pricing, in up to seven conditions, every variety of paper money ever issued. The result is a complete pictorial, descriptive and numismatic history of United States currency. Also with sections on Colonial and Continental currency and the Confederate States of America, and chapters on error notes, encased postage stamps and postage envelopes. For those who think of America's currency as a constant study in green and black, the rainbow-like diversity shown by the more than 800 color illustrations is a revelation in itself. New information has been added and valuations updated, making it possible to establish the value of any note. Paper Money of the United States has been an invaluable asset to currency collectors and numismatists. It also possesses an appeal and value to lovers of Americana, of the fine art of engraving, and students of American history, finance and economics. Banks will find this book especially useful in that it makes possible the immediate identification and valuation of all obsolete but still legal tender currency. It is a book which belongs in every library, public and private.

Paper Money of the United States, 19th ed.The Standard Reference Work on Paper Money Now for the first time, with every illustration on every page in full color. This landmark work is the standard reference on American currency. It is internationally acknowledged as the most comprehensive and universally recognized guide on the subject, illustrating and valuating all types of United States paper money. From the first year of Federal paper money, 1861, to the present, the fronts and backs of all classes and types of currency, from 3 cents to 10,000 dollars are illustrated. These are accompanied by text listing, describing and pricing, in up to seven states of preservation, every variety of paper money ever issued. The result is a complete pictorial, descriptive and numismatic history of the currency of the United States. There are sections on Colonial and Continental currency (notes issued from 1680 to 1788), and a complete listing by type of the issues of the Confederate States of America (1861-1864). Both are illustrated and have market values in several conditions. Also included are chapters on error notes, encased postage stamps and postage envelopes. For those who think of America's currency as a constant study in green and black, the rainbow-like diversity shown by the more than 800 color illustrations is a revelation in itself. The book is in may ways a museum catalog of a complete collection of United States currency. Many of the notes are shown in the finest state of preservation possible and some are so extremely rare that they may only be seen either on these pages or in an exhibition. Specimens from two of the world's greatest paper money collections, that of the American Numismatic Association in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and of the National Numismatic Collection at the Smithsonian Institution are highlights of the book. A distinguished panel of acknowledged experts on paper money assisted the authors, enabling them to establish accurate and up-to-the minute valuations for all issues. The publication of Paper Money of the United States introduced innovations never before attempted. Robert Friedberg (1912-1963) was the first to standardize this subject and gave this book a permanent place on reference shelves. For the past thirty years, it has been completely revised and edited by Arthur Friedberg, who is the Honorary President of the International Association of Professional Numismatists, and Ira Friedberg. New information has been added and valuations have been updated, making it possible to establish the value of any note. Paper Money of the United States has been an invaluable asset to currency collectors and numismatists for more than fifty years. It also possesses an appeal and value of its own, not just to lovers of Americana and of the fine art of engraving, but to students of American history, finance and economics. Banks in America and throughout the world will find this book especially useful in that it makes possible the immediate identification of all obsolete but still legal tender paper money, while simultaneously giving a market valuation. It is a book which belongs in every library, public and private.
