English Hammered Coins
« on: April 20, 2007, 11:40:19 PM »
The is a e-book just out, http://www.rotographic.com/hammered_silver_coins.htm , it will also be available as a printed paper book, but I have been looking through the e-book and it is worth buying. You can get it through e-Bay for 4 GBP, that is half the printed edition price.  There are 4 "copies" available through this e-Bay site http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=ADME:B:EOIBSAA:US:11&Item=180109188395.
I would say as a casual reference , it is worth the money.

Note for Mac and UNIX/LINUX users: the sample e-book is an .exe file. It will therefore only work on Windows machines or machines with Windows emulators. The .pdf  file works on any platform.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Bruce & Peter,there is supposed to be a new edition of Coincraft's 'Coins of England & the United Kingdom from 1066' being made available as a FREE download off http://www.coincraft.com some time this year.I'll believe it when I see it.

Currently,I prefer to use Spink's 'Coins of England & the United Kingdom',as that has much more coverage in post-1600 coins than Krause does.I have got a 1987 edition.
