The E-Sylum (3/14/2010)

Book Content

Last week I highlighted a Bank Note Reporter article by Bob Van Ryzin on an 1885 pamphlet by Nicholas Veeder on a "Co-metallic" monetary system. In a separate email I asked Bob how he'd come across the pamphlet, which is quite rare. My personal copy is the only one I've ever seen - purchased in the John J. Ford library sale. As it turns out, he'd found a digital copy in an online search. -Editor

For more information on the reprint, see: Cometallism: A Plan for Combining Gold and Silver in Coinage, for Uniting and Blending Their Values in Paper Money, and for Establishing a Composite Single Standard Dollar of Account (
