The Christian Reception of the Hebrew name of God has not previously been described in such detail and over such an extended period. This work places that varied reception within the context of early Jewish and Christian texts; Patristic Studies; Jewish-Christian relationships; Mediaeval thought; the Renaissance and Reformation; the History of Printing; and the development of Christian Hebraism.
The contribution of notions of the Tetragrammaton to orthodox doctrines and debates is exposed, as is the contribution its study made to non-orthodox imaginative constructs and theologies. In a case of II. This custom exists in most coin-using cultures. Category III, hoards, is divided into the two major categories of emergency hoards and savings hoards. Emergency hoards occur when some disaster impends war, invasion ; the owner grabs what coins there are and conceals them NFA , A savings hoard is accumulated over a series of years, and chooses the better coins from circulation; coins in a savings hoard are often skewed towards heavier weights NFA 27, A "reverse hoard" is a variant of discarding counterfeits II.
In the early s, a counterfeit subway token was widely circulated in New York City, nicknamed "the people's token. It was not uncommon to see token booths with stacks of a dozen "people's tokens" piled up on the shelf. These accumulations were, in effect, "reverse hoards": the hoarders were not picking out the desirable coins from circulation, but picking out the undesirable coins to prevent their further circulation.
The Montclair Hoard has some "reverse hoard" characteristics, since many of the coins in that hoard bear cancellation graffiti NFA It is possible for finds to move from one category to another. For example, an individual may accumulate a savings hoard in Pompeii , and then get buried by lava from Vesuvius—thus most of the finds at Pompeii will be I. Someone may accumulate coins, believing that they are valuable, but then the passage of time makes them valueless—an example would be state coppers that became valueless after the coppers panic.
The finds then move from III. B to II. The pre-Columbian civilizations of North and South America did not have coinage, but they did create metal objects that appear to have had some coin-like functions. The Aztecs used axe-shaped "hoe money," tlacas , made of thin sheets of copper and shaped like the Greek letter tau ; they are thought to have played some sort of monetary function, and hoards of these pieces have been found. Finds of non-coin traditional monies such as cowries, hoe money, and wampum have not been included in this inventory partly because of the difficulty of drawing the line between a cowry shell that served a monetary function, and one that was used as jewelry.
The discoveries of ancient coins in the Americas, thought by some to be evidence of pre-Columbian contact, have been brilliantly debunked by Epstein, who shows them to be later losses by collectors. More secure evidence begins with the excavations at La Isabela, in the Dominican Republic—the site of a settlement established by Columbus and abandoned by —and the coins found on the site of Hernando de Soto's camp of in Tallahassee NFA 3, 6.
The output from Santo Domingo was chiefly copper, although a small silver coinage is known. Another innovation of this period was the fleet system to transport bullion and coinage to Spain and to the Philippines. The New Spain fleet was loaded at Veracruz , and then would follow the currents along the Gulf of Mexico to Havana on the island of Cuba. The silver from Peru was taken via llamas down to the ports of Callao and Arequipa , and then was transported by a Pacific fleet, called the Armada del Sur, to the Isthmus of Panama.
Mule trains took the silver across the isthmus to two towns, Nombre de Dios until and Portobelo after During weeklong fairs the silver would be placed on the ships of the Tierra Firme fleet, which had also stopped on the coast of what is now Colombia for emeralds. Finally the joint fleets would leave Havana , pass up through the Straits of Florida between Florida and the Bahamas , and follow the Gulf Stream to Spain.
At Spain they would arrive at Cadiz , and proceed up over the sandbars of Guadalquivir River to arrive at Seville , where all treasure from America had to be landed. The other fleet system was in the Pacific, where one to three galleons a year traveled between Manila and Acapulco. The Manila galleon brought American silver to the Philippines , whence it passed across the Manila straits to China; it brought back porcelain and silks to Acapulco , which were transported by mule train across Mexico to Veracruz , where the porcelain was shipped onwards to Spain.
Shipwrecks have been found from all types of fleets, although it is only with the seventeenth century that shipwreck discoveries become abundant. The most important American shipwreck of the sixteenth century is the Plate Fleet, which was wrecked off Padre Island in Texas , and was excavated in the s and s NFA 13, 14, Shipwreck evidence becomes more ample from this period with the Atocha , Concepcion and Maravillas , to name only three of the most famous NFA 60, 78, Spain poured troops and treasure into the Netherlands in an unsuccessful attempt to defeat the revolt of Much of the coin spent by Spain in the Netherlands , including much American coin, ended up in the hands of the Dutch.
There are more hoards of coins from Spain's American colonies reported from the Dutch northern provinces, which the Spanish lost and which became the Netherlands , than there are from the southern provinces, which the Spanish retained and which became Belgium. The Dutch took over both places, temporarily in Brazil , permanently in the East Indies. They supplied their far-flung empire through their own fleet system; the ships were heavily stocked with coin from the colonies of Spanish America. They would use the winds of the Roaring Forties in the Southern Ocean to sail east; then, just before the coast of Australia , they would make a sharp left, and head north to Batavia now Jakarta.
Some of these ships did not turn in time, rammed into Australia , and their wrecks have since been recovered. Spain's troubles reached their nadir in the s. Spain's commercial partners lost their trust in Spanish coinage. This led to extensive countermarking operations in Spanish America and in Antwerp NFA A61, A70 , and also to the first coinage in what is now the United States—the New England and the willow, oak, and pine tree shillings from the mint in Boston , Massachusetts. The latter half of the seventeenth century in Europe was overshadowed by the wars of Louis XIV, and in the last decade of the century these wars affected America as well.
During the War of the League of Augsburg , Massachusetts undertook an invasion of Canada , and in it paid off the returning troops with the first government-backed paper money as opposed to banknotes in the western world. France's worldwide ambitions had several important numismatic effects in America. One was the competitive distribution of Indian peace medals by the French, the English, and latterly the Spanish in North America , as they sought to win Indian tribes over to their side NFA , His minting of a debased 2 reales the pistareen would greatly influence the monetary circulation of North America.
The Bourbons modernized Spain. Among their reforms was the introduction of modern minting machinery in the Spanish colonies. The large output of Santiago gold may actually have been smuggled over from Brazil. The first big gold strikes were made in Brazil in the s; gold production peaked in —45, much of it produced in Minas Gerais.
Oddly, the most extensive recovery of Brazilian 6, and 12, reis the "joes" is from a shipwreck of the late nineteenth century, the Douro, which sank in NFA A In these mints are superseded by the Federal Mint at Philadelphia. A hoard of the last decade of the eighteenth century that shows the work of the early United States Mint is the Goodhue-Nichols find from Salem, Massachusetts , the source of many mint state draped bust large cents NFA In , during the French Revolutionary Wars, Britain went off the gold standard, but by revaluing the 8 reales upwards to keep them in the country pegged the pound sterling to the Spanish dollar.
In this supply of silver was cut off when the War of Independence broke out in Mexico. The Mexican War of Independence led to the establishment of numerous branch mints to supply the armies, many of which continued to flourish after independence. A similar proliferation of mints happened as Central and South America won their independence.
The centralized mint system of colonial New Spain and Peru would not be re-established. The British attempt to enforce their blockade of France led to conflict with the United States, which cut off the British supply of planchets to the United States mint, and led to an interruption in the coinage of cents, so there are no cents dated The West Indies had a very complex coinage, involving the cutting and counterstamping of Mexican 8 reales and Brazilian joes.

As possession of the islands changed hands during the Napoleonic Wars, the French, British, and Dutch regularly cut and counterstamped the coinage. The United States operated a centralized minting system until the discovery of gold in the southern Appalachian Mountains in Georgia and in North Carolina led local jewelers to begin minting their own coins: these were the coins of Templeton Reid and the Bechtlers. The Treasury set up branch mints at Charlotte , North Carolina and Dahlonega , Georgia both opened to compete with the private mints. A third southern branch mint was at New Orleans.
The discovery of gold in California led to the establishment of, first, private assayers, and, subsequently, the San Francisco branch mint in A rich category of hoards comprises those associated with the United States Civil War. Tilley, who made much money trafficking in mules during the Civil War and who was killed by bushwhackers prior to a Confederate invasion of Missouri in September NFA The discovery of the huge silver supplies in Nevada the Comstock and Bonanza lodes led to the establishment of the Carson City mint in It shut down because of the financial crisis prompted by bimetallism in The large production of silver dollars, required by the Bland-Allison Act, led to the amassing of hundreds of millions of the coins in Federal government vaults, the largest coin accumulation ever put together in the United States.
This was then dispersed in the s, s, and A separate section in this inventory discusses this accumulation of silver dollars Part II. The most important hoarding phenomenon in the Americas in the twentieth century was the hoarding of gold in the United States following the stock market crash of , which was made illegal by the gold turn in order issued by Franklin D. Roosevelt in The hoard evidence shows that this law was widely flouted NFA , A study of the law reports and the newspapers shows that huge hoards continue to be formed in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, often by the illicit drug trade or to evade the income tax.
In the law reports, however, the notes are described in little detail, with merely the cash total mentioned. Where little revealing detail is reported, the hoards have been omitted from this inventory. American coin finds have been of interest to numismatists from the very beginning of numismatic study in the United States. This is clear from the fine reports of coin finds in a nineteenth century antiquarian periodical, the Historical Magazine. Sydney P. Noe , who contributed much to the study of ancient coin hoards, also wrote about United States hoards, including the Economite hoard and the Castine Deposit.
David Bowers published a work on coin hoards from the United States. The distinctions between this work and Bowers may be summarized as follows. This work includes single finds, Bowers as a rule does not; this work includes non- USA coins found in the Americas, Bowers as a rule does not; this work includes finds in all the Americas, Bowers only covers the USA ; this work includes American coins found outside the Americas, Bowers does not. There are also a number of hoards in Bowers that this inventory does not include, such as large accumulations of Lincoln cents.
Those hoards have been omitted because they do not tell us much about the history of the period. This inventory uses a concise, standardized, chronological arrangement, modeled after the Inventory of Greek Coin Hoards , 13 as opposed to the topical and discursive approach used by Bowers. In his Encyclopedia, published in , Walter Breen mentioned numerous hoards in the catalog listings. Except for the well-documented Goodhue-Nichols find NFA , none of Breen's hoards could be confirmed by the pedigree information. Breen seems to have attributed the prevalence of many high-grade coins of a particular variety to the existence of hoards, when there are many other possible explanations such as better mint quality control with that particular variety.
Most hoards for which the only evidence is Breen's Encyclopedia have accordingly been omitted. Some hoards in Breen's articles, such as the "Hidden Find," likewise have been omitted because they could not be verified. This inventory is based on five different groups of sources—the numismatic literature, the shipwreck literature, the archaeological literature, law reports, and newspapers. Numismatic literature was covered by reading through most of the major United States numismatic periodicals. Other sources, such as auction catalogs and monographs plus the periodical Coin Hoards and the periodical bibliography Numismatic Literature , were also examined.
Gordon Frost tracked down and supplied much of the shipwreck literature. The major source among the newspapers was the New York Times, because it has been indexed since Other indices were also consulted, such as the Canadian Periodicals Index and the Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature, and indices to other newspapers such as the St. The legal literature was accessed by looking through digests under the law of finds and treasure trove.
This inventory exploits all these sources more thoroughly than has ever been done before. Finds in Canada were comparatively easy to locate because of the Canadian numismatic periodicals, the Canadian Periodicals Index, and the Canadian numismatic bibliography of Daryl Atchison. Finds in the Americas, outside of the United States and Canada , have been more difficult to track down. There are several Latin American numismatic periodicals, but the coverage is by no means as comprehensive as is the case in Canada and the United States. The major lack is the absence of newspaper indices like that for the New York Times, since newspapers are the primary source of information about coin finds.
The coverage outside of Canada and the United States is thus more haphazard. The Inventory is divided into three parts: in the first part are finds of all types in the Americas, in the second part the dispersal of the accumulation by the USA federal government of silver dollars, and in the third part finds of American numismatic items, found outside the Americas. Finds in the first part are designated by simple Hindu-Arabic numerals, dispersals in the second part by Roman numerals, finds in the third part by Hindu-Arabic numerals plus the letter "A" as a prefix.
Each entry begins with the type of find: single find, hoard, shipwreck, or archaeological excavation. The type of find can refer either to the circumstances of deposition hoard, shipwreck or the method of recovery archaeological excavation. The coins found in archaeological excavations were usually deposited in the same manner as most single finds, i.
The intentional discarding of counterfeits also forms a major component of the archaeological record. The finds are ordered by the date of deposit. The term "date of deposit" is used instead of burial date, since modern hoards are often concealed by methods other than burial. For archaeological excavations, the date of the occupation of the site is used, or, if that extensively antedates the coins, the date of the earliest coin found.
The entries are modeled on the Inventory of Greek Coin Hoards, although the coins are described in more detail, because the underlying sources can be difficult to access. The Inventory of Greek Coin Hoards mentions if a hoard is a "pot hoard"; this inventory includes an entry on the container, if any. Each find is referred to by its location city, state or province, country and the date of finding, so far as that is known. If the date of finding is not known, then the date of reporting often the month and year of the periodical where the hoard is mentioned is used instead.
There can be a lag of several months before a report in local newspapers is published in a national magazine, such as the Numismatist. A comparison of ten instances where newspaper reports and reports in the Numismatist have been located for the same hoard shows that, assuming that the publication date of the Numismatist is the first day of the month, this lag extends from as few as nineteen days to exceptionally as many as days the next longest lag is forty-eight days.
The median number of days is thirty-six. Thus if a hoard is reported in, say, the Numismatist for November , the researcher in local newspapers should begin looking at the local newspaper for October 31, , and work backwards; the hoard should be reported by the time the researcher reaches the issue for September 12, ; to be certain that the researcher has not missed anything, the search should be extended back to the issue of June 16, The next entry is the number of items of each material copper, silver, gold, paper ; then the date of deposit.
The date of deposit is usually arrived at from the coin with the latest date, or, as some numismatists say, the coin that "closes" the hoard. Single finds are usually listed at the date of the coin; a 8 reales will be found with the finds from , even though such a coin may have been lost at any time well into the nineteenth century. Since, however, there are often well-documented historical circumstances that suggest the reason for the burial of the hoard such as the movements of Confederate or Union armies during the Civil War , this date of deposit has often been used instead.
Where the date of deposit is the coin with the latest date, the hoard could have been deposited years later. The date of deposit is often not a precise date, but a terminus post quem ; and the date of finding, likewise, not a precise date but a terminus ante quem. This is then followed by a detailed description of the find, plus the disposition, if known.
Bibliographical references conclude each entry. The bibliographical entries do not include every mention of the find in some cases, such as the Atocha , to list every mention would result in a huge book , but the three or five most important, occasionally more if the references are especially interesting. Most sources are referred to by the author-date system, with full entries found in the reference list at the end; however, short articles in the Numismatist , the Numismatic Scrapbook Magazine , the New York Times and other popular publications that are referred to only once are entered in full in the entry referring to the find and omitted from the reference list.
Where a hoard appears to be genuine, but incorrectly described, the description has been amended. An example of this is a report of 3, Spanish silver coins, dated from to , which "included in the find an American silver dollar bearing the date with the likeness of George Washington. Similarly, gold hoards of United States coins where the oldest coin is reported as dated have been corrected to because people tend to round off numbers NFA , , , These emendations are mentioned in the text.
Incomplete descriptions, such as "Spanish silver coin," have been filled out by inserting the name of the likeliest casual loss of the period—e. These additions are also mentioned in the text. Finds have been reported from every single one of the fifty states composing the United States of America , except for three: Hawaii , Oklahoma , and Wyoming. Virgin Islands. Among American islands in the Atlantic, finds have been reported from the Bahamas and Bermuda.
Despite this extensive coverage, many gaps remain to be filled, particularly from outside the United States. Comparatively few coin finds have been reported from Latin America. The rich and complex history of Latin America , especially after independence, could usefully be supplemented by hoard evidence. Outside the Americas, the geographical coverage reflects the extensive circulation of the coins of Spain's American colonies in littoral countries, plus numerous shipwreck recoveries.
Particularly valuable series of hoard reports are due to the assiduousness of H. EnnoVan Gelder, Pablo I. Many people have helped the author greatly in compiling this book, and the author would like to single out two: Q. David Bowers and Oliver Hoover, for they both shared with the author their own research notes into the same field.
This was extraordinarily generous. Len Augsburger, likewise, shared his work on the Baltimore Gold Hoard when it was still in manuscript. Dave Ginsburg also shared his primary source materials from his research on the Kerens , Texas gold hoard. Philip Mossman read over the manuscript and made many helpful suggestions. Sarah E. Cox obtained a reference from a library to which the author did not have access, and retraced her steps when the first reference the author had supplied turned out to be incorrect.
