I see this book has been discussed before but I want to put in my two cents worth.
My kids received a few worn bronze antoniniani
in local Coins for As program. Was having trouble identifying them and started looking around. Ran
across Late Roman
Bronze Coinage An attribution
guide for poorly preserved coins online and ordered it.
It arrived yesterday via amazon and at first I was disappointed that it didn't cover the antoniniani
but started with Constantine
. Then I started reading it and am really tickled with this book. Who would have thought some of these little details in the book could help
identify coins. I've only used it on a couple not so "poorly preserved coins" and it appears to work
. Can't wait to get my hands
on a few more coins and try it out.
Bottom line, I'm really tickled with this book.
