NEW BOOK ON CAST FORGERIES OF ANCIENT COINS

  Excerpts from the press release:

  "CAST FORGERIES OF CLASSICAL COINS FROM
  BULGARIA"  by Ilya Prokopov and Eugeni Paunov.
  (='Coin Collections and Coin Hoards from Bulgaria' no. 3),
  wholly in English, format 16, 88 pp., glossy black paperback,
  112 coins in bronze, silver and gold, 27 casts, 14 pages in
  full color.  Sofia, SP&P Publishing, October 2004.
  ISBN 954-91396-4-6. Publisher's Price: US $24.00."

  "This is the third book on the counterfeits of ancient coins
  from present-day Bulgaria. In 1997, a team of three co-authors
  lead by Dr Prokopov prepared and edited a first small book
  of fake coins, which was subsequently published in Sofia. The
  present catalogue is a result of that continuing initiative and
  work.

  In this format (22.5x14.5 cm) a large group of modern and
  ancient cast forgeries of Greek and Roman coins coming from
  Bulgaria is published. 112 coins in gold, silver, copper and
  bronze are catalogued and illustrated with nice black & white
  photos in chronological and geographic principle. For the
  first time a group of 15 coins and details are presented in full
  color. In the beginning, authors show 11 Roman contemporary
  cast coins from Moesia - 5 asses and 11 denarii. Next a
  pseudo-hoard of fake and genuine Roman Imperial coins -
  consisting of 2 aurei and 74 denarii, is shown. The Bulgarian
  police authorities at the customs deprived it in the fall of 2003.
  From the total number of coins, 6 specimens are Greek and
  Macedonian (4 in silver, 2 in bronze); 83 Roman (Republican
  - 1 denarius; Imperial: - 82 (3 in gold, 80 in silver, 11 in bronze,
  1 in lead). A special section of the catalogue is devoted to a
  modern rubber/plastic negative matrix for making imprints of
  cast models of Roman Imperial denarii. All are illustrated in
  detail and commented."
