Re: Reference books (Indian sub-continent)
« Reply #15 on: March 22, 2012, 11:54:20 AM »
I got it for around INR 900. Didn't need to use it as a reference even once, I'm afraid. I find myself using Gupta-Hardaker's book all the time. If you only plan to collect PMCs of the Magdha-Maurya series, I would suggest avaiding this one.

Dear Sir,

Both D. Rajgor and Gupta/Hardaker books are extremely difficult to find and very expensive. Could you advise some other book on the subject of punch-marked coins to be a possible substitute for them?
So far I saw three titles on the internet covering the topic. If you know these books would you possibly comment on their quality and coverage? Thanks.

- S.R. Goyal The Coinage of Ancient India: Punch-Marked, Local, Tribal, Indo-Greek, Saka, Pahlava, Kushana, Satavahana and Gupta Coins, 1995
- S.R. Goyal  The Dynastic Coins of Ancient India, 1995
- Bhanu Agarwal, Subas Rai Indian Punch Marked Coins, 1994

THE REVISED STANDARD REFERENCE GUIDE TO INDIAN PAPER MONEY by Kishore Jhunjhunwalla and Rezwan Razack was released earlier this year and is an updated version of the original Standard Reference Guide which was published in 2000.

This will no doubt be a valuable resource for collectors of such material. Where is it available?

Recently acquired a small lot of (mostly) out of print titles.









"Comprehensive" seems an understatement for this one!
