An Appreciation
Draped Bust Coins

 Perhaps the most beautiful woman
ever to appear on a coin


The material on Draped Bust coins presented here is an elaboration of articles of mine that appeared in the January 2001 and May 2001 issues of Coins magazine and the June 2002 issue of COINage magazine.

Images of coins other than those that I photographed myself are courtesy of National Numismatic Collection of the Smithsonian Institution, Museum of the American Numismatic Association,, The Coin Site, Heritage Numismatic Auctions, Auctions by Bowers and Merena, Stack's Rare Coins, Superior Galleries, David Akers Numismatics, Cybercoins, Spectrum Numismatics, and Ira & Larry Goldberg Coins & Collectibles.
