Brother Can You Spare a Dime?

ENCYCLOPEDIA OF SMALL SILVER COINS

Roger deWardt Lane

Nearly forty years ago, I started my interest in Modern Dime Size Silver Coins of the World, and put together a typeset

of 18 mm silver coins from countries around the world.

The dates started with the issues of Queen Victoria and ended with the last circulating silver coins of this size - 1970

Netherlands Antilles, minted in Holland.

Several years later, I enlarge the series to include 17mm - 19mm, all dates, mintmarks, assay initals and

fineness arranged by date order within mints.

The collection will never be completed, unless taken over by an institution or individual with unlimited time

plus some wealth and great fortitude.

The manuscript was reworked many time: hand printed, AppleWriter, WordStar, MSword, Adobe PageMaker and finally Acrobat. A laser printed copy was donated to The American Numismatic Society Library and the author has the other copy. In 2002 a CD-rom was burned with a few copies to numismatic friends and a few sold at my local coin clubs.

In 2003 an improved disc was created and copies were presented to the American Numismatic Association, Numismatic International, Numismatic Literary Guild and others. Since the subject is extremely specialized, the author has, with this final update, text edited by a numismatic friend and photo frames improved with Abobe PhotoShop, presented it to the numismatic community.

The book has been given to Google Books for viewing.
