Research paper

Coins | Conan Barbarian

i am in the middle of writing a research paper about the economic recession as a result to the crime of 1873. i am looking for information/ sources on what the major causes and affects of the coinage act were and any help  would be greatly appreciated. 

writing this research paper so far was very educational and i learned a lot more about the united states and the late 1900's along with the coinage that was produced during the time. i would like to expand and focus on, as i said before, the major causes and affects/results of this recession.

thank you for any help you provide

There was a book "The Crime of '73." I'm sure the ANA Library has it.

Yep, Robert Van Ryzin's book, "The Crime of 1873, The Comstock Connection" (Krause Publications; 2001.) We currently have two copies available to check out (three on hand total, but one copy stays in the Library at all times as a reference book; the other two can be checked out.)

If you read the Wizard of Oz - not the movie, but read the book - you will notice before too long that it is not a "little kids' story. It is all about the Crime of "73! The path of gold bricks that Dorothy takes with her silver slippers helps illustrate the gold and silver movement vs. the use of paper money, aka greenbacks. (Red just shows up better in technicolor than silver, so that's why her slippers were red in the movie.) Emerald City = Greenbacks; Scarecrow = The Midwestern farmers, portrayed as being dim; Tin Man's rust = Failing industry; Pres. McKinley = the Wicked Wizard; It goes on and on. -Sam Gelberd, ANA Numismatic Educator

I would contact the library. They should have books on this and will help alot. I personally do not have information on this but even a library in your neighborhood would have books. You can even make copies there. Lots of luck with the paper I hope you find everything you need and I known it will be done well . Lots of luck. Mike.
