Books on colonial and continental currency banknotes?
So I just learned about Continental and colonial currency banknotes this week and I’m fascinated. I knew they existed but always assumed they were far out of my price range. Now I’m realizing that isn’t necessarily true, many of them seem much more reasonable than their metal counterparts.
What reference material should I look for to learn more? I saw there’s a book by Newman, Early Paper Money of America. The latest was the 5th edition which apparently costs as much as some of the banknotes themselves, but the 4th edition is much more reasonably priced. Does anyone have an opinion on either, or some alternatives so I can learn before I just go diving in 😂
Thank you! Banknotes are a new world for me!
