Julian, Martin Logies, and Warren Miller. Included is a history of the early U.S. Mint, an easy finding guide to die varieties, listings by Bowers Borckardt (BB) numbers and updated rarity ratings, population data, and notable examples lists.

U.S. Liberty Head $20 Double Eagles: The Gilded Age of Coinage
This 376-page book has been widely acclaimed and will give you a couple of evenings of interesting, informative reading. Guaranteed! Acclaimed author and numismatist Q. David Bowers joins with corporate attorney and economics researcher Robert J. Galiette to take the reader year by year through the history of the Liberty Head double eagle. From the Gold Rush in California through the American Civil War and the rapid development of the American economy to the hard times of the early 1890s into the prosperous early 20th century, the double eagle was the right coin at the needed time and became the world’s standard. During this era the $20 double eagle financed inventions in transportation, telecommunications, electricity, manufacturing and science, while supporting an economy in which immigrants from around the world contributed their energies to build a nation. This entertaining book is a journey through these years of change and growth, with a focus on numismatics, history and culture.
