From the Back Cover --

This is a delightful story about the artist, the event, and the highly collectible little numismatic items. Call them “dollars,” or call them “medals,” you are extremely fortunate if you own even one of Charbneau’s creations. The book is highly illustrated with associated items, the post cards, the prints and pictures, the map and posters, the covers, tickets and programs, the related expo items, all of which add luster to the little gems, known as Charbneau’s Gold Dollars.
