New Book by David W. Lange Provides a Comprehensive History of Coin Boards
Posted on 8/24/2007
NGC Research Director David W. Lange has written a new book titled “Coin Collecting Boards of the 1930s & 1940s: A Complete History, Catalog, and Value Guide.” This is a thoroughly documented history of the companies and individuals who made coin boards the entry point for thousands of new collectors starting in 1935. Some 216 pages in all, with 64 pages in full color, Dave’s book is heavily illustrated and is a very fun read, regardless of whether or not one is a collector of antique coin boards.
Included is a grading guide for coin boards, as well as a complete listing of all known varieties. Each entry is valued in four grades, revealing its individual rarity. Also found in this book are tips on locating, purchasing, and storing coin boards.
This new book is published by Dave’s own Pennyboard Press, and ordering instructions may be found at his Web site: www.coincollectingboards.com.
