"THE book for California Fractionals, the affordable Carlifornia Gold Rush private coinage. It is a toss up to decide what Bob Leonard has done best: coordinating iconoclastic, egocentric collectors, or tracking down leads on the highways and byways of research. To cite one area, Leonard's revelations on manufacturers in the 1870s and 1880s are amazing." - Robert J. Chandler, Wells Fargo Historical Services
