Newman Portal Adds Philippine Emergency Notes

Through the courtesy of author Kenneth J. E. Berger, the volume Philippine Emergency Notes : Counterstamped, Signed & Initialed (CSI) Cebu Province is available on Newman Portal. Following the December 1941 Japanese attacks on Hawaii and the Philippines, increased government expenditures and public hoarding created a need for emergency money, which was authorized by the Philippine government in late 1941. Berger’s work focuses on the counterstamped, signed, and initial notes issued by the Philippine Central Bank in the Cebu region. An addendum to the work, also available on Newman Portal, supplies color illustrations of many of the Cebu notes.

Newman Portal Scans D. T. Batty’s Catalogue of Copper Coinage

Recently scanned at the American Numismatic Society is Batty’s Catalogue of the Copper Coinage of Great Britain, Ireland, British Isles and Colonies. This four-volume work was originally issued in parts, between 1868 and 1898. The October 1876 American Journal of Numismatics reported “Mr. D. T. Batty…is now publishing a valuable work…It is compiled from various sources, but especially from the author’s own collection of fifteen thousand varieties…”

Volume one (nos. 1-2973) covers penny and halfpenny tokens, volume two (nos. 2974-4251) continues with halfpenny and farthing tokens, while volume three (nos. 1-6850) includes regal copper coins. Volume four, published by George Frederick Lawrence after Batty’s death, includes an appendix to the previous volumes (nos. 6851-8304) as well as coverage of the colonial issues (nos. 1-2133, primarily Canada). The ANS library further includes a typescript index to the first two Batty volumes.

Sets of Batty are scarce. The Bass sale included a four-volume set, of which vols. 1-3 were large paper copies. This lot was acquired by Bill Burd. Charles Davis further offered a four-volume set in original cloth in the summer 1991 Asylum. A quick check of reveals only print-on-demand reprint versions, while the UK bookseller Galata offers a four-volume set in c. 1900 library binding for £540.
