Newcomb, Howard R. UNITED STATES COPPER CENTS, 1816–1857. First edition. New York: Numismatic Review, 1944. 4to, original full red morocco, gilt. 284 pages; 11 plates. Binding rubbed at top fore-edge corners. Else fine. The deluxe leatherbound version of the first edition of this important work, printed on regular paper. Only 50 copies of the regular-paper version in leather were produced. While not absolutely perfect, this copy is about as good as these get: the leather used was of poor quality and scuffs easily.
