It is indeed fascinating, whether you are a coin collector, interested in history, or a starting numismatist. This book is impossible to put down, it is jam packed with interesting rumors and information about the coins of the United States.
I met Michael van den Heuvel through this blog who published a book about square coins. I got in touch with him, because it sounded like a very interesting research. He was very kind to send me an electronic version of the book so I could easily read it. Square coins in general are much easier for me to identify. There is only a few of them, at least compared to round coins, therefore they are very distinguishable. I asked Michael if he would be willing to talk about his book and research on my blog.
I interviewed Michael about his project, below you can read our conversation.
