Hi Joe/Quadrans,

What period of time does this volume cover? Which rulers?
(I think that may also be what Shawn was asking)

How many volumes do you expect to produce?

Thanks.

Walter

The time period are the St Stephan (Istvan the 1st ) to Henricus (Imre ) 997-1204 A.D.  Followed by the Huszar line .

The next Volume  ( Vol II.) will be in March 2018, included the Anonimous Denarius.  The Vol III. will be printed in Summer of 2018 this one included the latest time intarval the Kings the house  of  Árpad  to closed date are 1307 A.D.

 like my article :

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/313904419_Megjegyzesek_a_keso_Arpad-kori_penzek_jegyrendszereinek_kerdeseivel_kapcsolatban_Remarks_on_the_Marking-system_of_the_Late_Arpad_Age_Coins



 The Answere are not easy because nobody known exactly  which are the time interval of the Anonimous denarius, because they are overlaped some part of both other periods.

Volume I looks promising, Joe. I see that it includes your studies of the sigla. I am looking forward to receiving my copy, and to the release of volume II. Will the second volume complete the series? I will then have to go back and update all the Hungarian albums in my gallery -- roughly 370+ coins (which I am in the process of doing, anyway, as I recently did for Maria). Stkp

Joe, your book arrived last week. I'm looking forward to the next volume. I have so far only gone through my coins of the earliest Arpadian kings and incorporated your book into my write-ups:

Joe, the book is great. I intend to post something more substantive about it eventually. I need to use a bit more thoroughly first. I'll send you a private message first with my thoughts and questions after I have updated my album of Kalman, using your book and other sources I did not have when I posted those coins. Steve

Dear Steve,

In my opinion, the Vol III. will be available the next summer and extend to the end of the Árpadian Dynasty (Late Árpadians) an included the Vencel and Otto, but they are not a member of the Dynasty but the monetary systems and the typology are very similar.
Finally the end of the next year maybe the Vol IV. will be available including the Angevin (Anjou)Dynasty...etc...:)

Joe


Title: Re: New Book, Hungarian Medieval coin Vol I. and II.
Post by: Stkp on November 21, 2018, 12:08:36 pm
The big changes came with Karoly/Charles Robert, so it makes sense to begin volume IV with the Angevins and to place Vencel and Otto at the end of the Arpads. How many volumes to you project to reach the end? Will it end before dated coinage, or continue through Lajos/Louis II and Janos/John Zapolyai/Szapolyai? Stkp

I am continuing to go through my gallery and revise my attributions/descriptions of my medieval Hungarian coins based on Joe's excellent book (and other books that have been published or acquired since my original postings). With some minor tweaking (and I have a couple of questions that I have asked of Joe concerning specific coins), I have now completed updating my album on the coinage of Coloman/Kálmán:
http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2235

As of this writing, I have only studied Volume I (Volume II is in the mail) through the reign of Kálmán. The book (a) identifies varieties of the coinage that are not listed in the earlier major catalogs (Huszar, CNH/Rethy and Eh/Unger); (b) contains both scale and enlarged photos of each coin type together with line drawings; (c) identifies by line drawing all of the different sigla (small privy marks) associated with each type; (d) provides a rarity rating and historic rarity ratings utilized in prior works; and (e) provides average weights and size ranges. I heartily recommend the book for anyone who is seriously interested in the coinage that is covered by the volume. Congratulations to Joe and his co-authors for putting together a wonderful volume.

Moving along, I have completed my revisions of the coinage of István/Stephen II (1116-1131) based in large part on Joe/Quadran's book: http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2252 (just the first 3 coins in the album). The revision project gives me the opportunity to take out and closely examine coins that I last handled many years ago. It is a re-acquaintance with old friends. Stkp-

Dear Steve,

At first, thank you for your nice words about our Book, I'm really appreciated.

I hope you have enjoyed this kind of updates... ;) :) +++

I will try to answer your question as soon as possible.

If you received the Vol. II. some more of your coin will be updated... ;) +++

Post by: Stkp on December 10, 2018, 10:02:55 am
Joe,

I retrieved Volume II from the post office on Saturday. I have not started to work with it yet, as I have not completed my revision of my descriptions/attributions of the coins covered by Volume I (I have four more coins left to go and expect to be working with Volume II before the new year). However, I read through the text of Volume II and randomly examined the catalog entries. My preliminary impression is that the book is as impressive in its detail and clarity as Volume I is. I look forward to the publication of Volume III and the completion of your coverage of the Árpádian dynasty!

I have noticed, by the way, that various coin dealers have already begun to reference their offerings to your catalog numbers. The same dealers ignore completely the other recent catalogs that have been published that are of a significantly lower quality (Frynas and Adamovszky). I expect that your books will supplant Huszár as the standard.

Stkp

P.S. I appreciate your willingness to answer the private questions I sent you concerning Volume I and a number of my coins that are covered by that volume. I will again revise my descriptions/attributions based on your answers. Take your time. Stkp

Post by: quadrans on December 10, 2018, 10:48:43 am
Dear Steve,

It is good news you received the Vol. II., I hope you are like it :)

We start this work an approximately 14 year ago...
We have studied more than 50,000 coins from the different Museums, more than a hundred hoards, and so many Catalogs of the different Auctions site, and many many private collections...
Our goal was to do a great and systematic catalog, which is useful to the scientists and the collectors and also to the dealers...

I hope we do it well...  ;)

Joe

Joe, I have been revising my descriptions of my anonymous denarii based on volume 2 of your book. So far, I have completed my revision of the Class I Anonymous Denarii (15 coins): http://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=2252. Volume 2 is, so far, as clear and easy to use as volume 1, and equally thorough. There are no unrecorded varieties or sigla amongst my coins in this group. Stkp
