WHITMAN ENCYCLOPEDIA OF OBSOLETE PAPER MONEY Volume 4: New England, Part 2: Massachusetts, Book 2

The Whitman Encyclopedia of Obsolete Paper Money is a multiple-volume study of American currency issued by state-chartered banks from 1782 to 1866, before the modern era of National Banks and the Federal Reserve. Volume 4 is a guide to Massachusetts, specifically the towns of Hallowell to Yarmouth. It’s a companion to volume 3, and between them the two volumes cover the entire Bay State.

He gives the history of every Massachusetts town and city from Hallowell to Yarmouth, as well as of every bank in those towns that issued this uniquely American currency. Each note is studied, and hundreds are pictured in full color, with information on values, rarity, significant auction results, grading, advice for collectors, and more.

The Whitman Encyclopedia of Obsolete Paper Money is a monumental work. Essential for collectors, it is equally valuable for American historians. Volume 4 is an immersion in the life of New England and our nation from the Revolution to the Civil War.

“Destined to become a landmark event in the unfolding history of U.S. paper-money collecting. These works should be on the shelves of our institutions of higher education and in historical societies of all the states covered.” — Fred Reed, editor, Paper Money Magazine

“A treasure trove of information, vivid illustrations, and key data illuminating the wonderfully decorative and colorful currency issued by American banks from 1782 to 1866.” — Anne E. Bentley, curator of art and artifacts, Massachusetts Historical Society
