CDN Publishing has just published the 2023 Edition of Early Paper Money of America, the seminal reference book on the first circulating currencies of North America. Authored by the renowned scholar, numismatist, and collector Eric P. Newman, this is the first new edition since 2008.
At 472 pages, this edition features hundreds of full color images, replacing the black and white plates of earlier editions. Pricing has been completely updated by CDN Pricing Editor, Patrick Ian Perez, a leading specialist for numismatic pricing.
The EPMOA, as it is commonly known, is the seminal body of work on this important and historic numismatic subject. According to Perez, “there is simply no comparable work in existence that comes close to the decades-long efforts of Eric Newman. It has been an honor and a privilege to participate in bringing the much-needed 2023 Edition to life.”
The reference covers the latest research in the field which includes all of the thousands of known scrip issued officially and privately from the Continental Congress, the original 13 colonies, and more.
Other improvements include an improved typeface, overall design and updated cover. A digital edition of the book is available immediately at the Greysheet website. Printed copies will be available in hardcover only and will start shipping in early September. The work is priced at $100 for the digital version and $150 for the hardcover version, or a combined price of $200. Existing subscribers to Greysheet products will be offered a 20% discount.
