A remarkable series, featuring Gardner’s own commentary on his astonishing collection, coupled with beautiful color photographic enlargements of each piece. Published in very limited numbers and mostly distributed privately. Only the Liberty Seated quarter and half dollar circulation strike volumes saw more than one edition issued, with three editions of the quarters and two of the half dollars being published. This set includes the third edition of the quarter books and the first edition of the half dollar books. The volume on Barber quarters is the only one devoted to a topic outside the Liberty Seated series. A wonderful photographic record of an extraordinary collection.
