Before the development of federal money, coins were the only name in the game, but in 1861 that changed forever. This hour-long seminar recording, hosted by Numismatic News Executive Editor David Harper, and Debbie Bradley, Krause Publications numismatic editorial director, takes you behind the scenes and into the history of U.S. paper money and guides you through some of the reasons and methods that make collecting paper money a popular experience today.
With the price of gold on a history-making high, the precious metals market overall seeing record-setting interest and prices, and more people looking for more investment options, paper money is a bit of the dark horse you can keep an eye out for..
This package includes a PDF of the seminar presentation as well as an audio recording of the seminar (both of which you download to your computer to view and hear), which included discussion of:
