THE MINT ON CARSON STREET wins 2004 BOOK OF THE YEAR HONORS from two of the most prestigious organizations in the field of coin collecting! Both the Professional Numismatist's Guild and the Numismatic Literary Guild made the announcement at the annual American Numismatic Association's coin convention held in Pittsburgh. It is not often that an author wins both awards in the same year. In a statement from the PNG commented that, "the Friedberg [Book of the Year] Award is not automatically given each year, only when there is deemed to be a worthy recipient". They went on to say that "[Rusty] Goe received the Friedberg literary award for his reference work about the Carson City Mint and the days of the fabled Comstock Lode".About the Author:
