Significant Examples of each coin, auction appearances and prices realized also make a debut in this new edition.
1907-S $10.00 NGC MS63 CAC
Mintage: 210,500 Unless you really know the Liberty Head eagle series, it is unlikely that you are aware of this coin's scarcity in higher grades. In MS60 to MS62, the 1907-S eagle is available from time to time. In MS63 it is very scarce and in grades above this it is almost never seen. Besides being a condition rarity, this date has significance as the penultimate San Francisco eagle of this type. This piece is extremely lustrous and nicely toned in deep orange-gold hues with some contrast on the high spots. It has the appearance of a "Euro coin" but unlike nearly every Mint State 1907-S that I've seen it is not riddled with deep bagmarks.1907-D $20.00 NGC MS66
Mintage: 842,250 With the exception of the 1904, all Liberty Head double eagles in MS66 are rare. The 1907-D has the added benefit of being a final-year-of-issue and one of just two Liberty Head double eagles to be produced at the Denver mint.
"Before reading The Panic of 1907, the year 1907 seemed like a long time ago and a different world. The authors, however, bring this story alive in a fast-moving book, and the reader sees how events of that time are very relevant for today's financial world. In spite of all of our advances, including a stronger monetary system and modern tools for managing risk, Bruner and Carr help us understand that we are not immune to a future crisis."See also:

"Bruner and Carr provide a thorough, masterly, and highly readable account of the 1907 crisis and its management by the great private banker J. P. Morgan. Congress heeded the lessons of 1907, launching the Federal Reserve System in 1913 to prevent banking panics and foster financial stability. We still have financial problems. But because of 1907 and Morgan, a century later we have a respected central bank as well as greater confidence in our money and our banks than our great-grandparents had in theirs."
—Richard Sylla, Henry Kaufman Professor of the History of Financial Institutions and Markets, and Professor of Economics, Stern School of Business, New York University
"A fascinating portrayal of the events and personalities of the crisis and panic of 1907. Lessons learned and parallels to the present have great relevance. Crises and panics are as much a part of our future as our past."
—John Strangfeld, Vice Chairman, Prudential Financial
"Who would have thought that a hundred years after the Panic of 1907 so much remained to be written about it? Bruner and Carr break significant new ground because they are willing to do the heavy lifting of combing through massive archival material to identify and weave together important facts. Their book will be of interest not only to banking theorists and financial historians, but also to business school and economics students, for its rare ability to teach so clearly why and how a panic unfolds."
