During my weekly bookstore day, I checked out the section where the coin books are. Not much change in inventory. A bunch of old World coin guides, some Red Books, and a few that did not appeal to me.
Just as in coin searching, sometimes you have to look in places where you wouldn't usually look. I browsed through the American history section, and what did I find? US Mint and Coinage. I understand Dave Bowers' book on the Gold Rush had been available at this store too, for a very low price.
Bookstore lovers know that sometimes, books will be shelved in the wrong section. It's up to the dedicated searcher to find these gems. Keep looking for coins. Keep looking for books.
