Dr. Frederick J. Bart, an emergency and elective reconstructive surgeon, and globally recognized collector and researcher of small-size paper money errors, has written two references on the subject, including the previous edition of this book. His partner in this effort, his wife Doris, is a former scrub nurse who became president of BART, Inc. to devote herself full-time to currency. She specializes in error notes and autographs on paper money. Together they have written chapters on paper money errors for several other general books on currency.
