california coiners and assayers
The first encyclopedic dictionary that tells the story of those who created ingots and coins from gold during some of the most pivitol years in American history. While much of California's Gold Rush era has been chronicled, Owens is one of the few to focus on the assayers, bankers and others who played an important role during this period. The study begins by covering the Californian Gold Rush and continues all the way to the end of its private gold coinage era. Through extensive research and documentation, Owens has created a groundbreaking work forthe field of numismatics.
