Lovett Cent book The Lovett Cent; a Confederate Story – 2nd Edition

The 2nd edition of The Lovett Cent; a Confederate Story adds a new picture of Robert Lovett, Jr.’s grave with a plaque commemorating his induction into the ANA Hall of Fame and notes about two web sites containing collections of Lovett tokens and medals. Several photographs were updated to better images.

The primary focus of the 2nd edition is Robert Bashlow and the copies (2nd restrikes) he and David Laties made. Some of the deceptive fakes that have been in the marketplace have been identified with images and discussions. Several new images have been added with updated text. This includes information about the edge lettering on the Tin and Nickel pieces.

The British Confederate cents that Bashlow and Laties had made in London, England have been identified with photographs. This set was owned by John J. Ford, Jr. and is housed in a black leather case. The current owner of the set supplied photographs of the three coins. One is in gold, another in silver and the last was over-struck on an 1858 Flying Eagle cent. Images of additional specimens are also published in the book.

The Appendix has been expanded with additional information on Bashlow, which includes the complete set of Bashlow dies and hubs ensconced in the Smithsonian Institution. These images were supplied by the late Richard Doty, Ph.D.
