Rick’s Pedigree Coins – “Fitzgerald Silver Dollar Collection – The Purple Gang Set”

My next book covers Lincoln Fitzgerald and the Fitzgerald Collection of silver dollars.  It is titled:  “Fitzgerald Silver Dollar Collection – The Purple Gang Set”.  The book briefly traces the early days of Lincoln’s life as a “bookkeeper” for the Purple Gang’s illegal casino operations to his crowning achievement of building Fitzgerald’s Casino & Hotel in Reno, NV.   The majority of the book covers one of the most extensive collections of Fitzgerald silver dollars known to exist.   

A note about inflation – it also happens in titles.  Lincoln’s title of “bookkeeper” in the 1920’s would now be called Senior Executive Vice President of Casino Operations. 

The final manuscript is being prepared and I am waiting for some last minute additions before turning it over to the publisher.  It does contain many rare and one-of-a-kind Fitzgerald Collection silver dollar varieties.  It also contains a current population report for the hoard. 

Distributors for my first book, “Rick’s Legacy – Pedigree & Hoard / Coins & Currency”, will also be handling distribution of my second book.  It will be available on Amazon, Ebay, The Book Nook in Jacksonville FL, and at Great Collections auction house.
While most of the sales will be done through these distributors, I am having a few extra copies made so that I can offer direct sales to people who have purchase Pedigree coins from me in the past.  These books will be offered at a pre-publishing wholesale discount rate.  Email me at RicksPedigreeCoins@Gmail.com to secure information.
