UNLISTED SO CALLED DOLLARS: Click on the Catagories below to view so called dollars that were not listed in the original 1962 edition of Hibler and Kappen's book(HK). All pieces were minted prior to January 1st 1960, are not holed or looped, and show no signs of loop removal. For inclusion they had to measure no less than 32.6 mm (rounded up, 33 mm), and no more than 44.4 mm(rounded down, 44 mm). I have included my best GUESS as to rarity, which I could change as time passes. I used the same rarity descriptions that were used in the first edition of HK: COMMON, SCARCE, VERY SCARCE, RARE, VERY RARE, EXTREMELY RARE. I did not include any "off metal" unlisted pieces(HK 1 in Copper for instance). Included are unlisted die pairings and completely unlisted types as follows:

  1. both sides exist in the 1962 edition of HK but on different HK numbers (the reverse of HK42 combined with the reverse of HK46 for example).
  2. one side exists in the 1962 edition, but the other side does not.
  3. neither side exists anywhere in the 1962 edition.

After excluding a number of different categories that were generally not included in HK(commercial advertising pieces, award medals etc.), my basic interpretation of the book suggests that one or both sides of the piece should commemorate something that was probably of "public" interest. CLICK HERE for an explanation of included fraternal medals.

IN SEPTEMBER OF 2015 I CHANGED ALL OF THE NUMBERING AGAIN. THIS MAY BE THE LAST MAJOR CHANGE THAT I MAKE, AT LEAST FOR QUITE A WHILE. As I include more pieces, I will add on the usual "a", "b" etc to already existing numbers. I created two new catagories - one for Imitation Slugs, and another that I have titled "Performers and Famous Americans Excluding Presidents". I have also added in some new pieces, including a few of what I feel are some of the ealiest unlisted so called dollars. Some of my newest editions are numbers 58,59,77,83,90,109,112,115,126,156,157,188,211,222,224,229,232,237,251,255,303,304,305,306,307,314,341,343, and a number of immitation gold slugs.
