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. Fine, with only the very slightest rubbing at extremities. 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. This copy is about as good as they get: the leather used was of poor quality and scuffs easily.
