NEW BOOK: R. ALLAN BARKER ON THE CASH COINS OF VIETNAM

Craig Greenbaum writes: "Collectors of old Vietnamese cash
coins will be happy to know that a new book has been published
on this subject.  The book is titled "The Historical Cash Coins
of Vietnam by Dr. R. Allan Barker of Singapore.  It covers all
official, semi-official and rebel coinage of Vietnam form 968 AD
to the last Emperor Bao Dai in 1945.  Every reign has numerous
varieties shown in full color and b/w rubbings.  All coins are
assigned a rarity code to assist collectors in valuing their
coins.  The book contains information on common and not so
common forgeries of cash type coins and new research on
unattributed coinage.

Allan had this published in Singapore using four color, direct
to plate technology on 90 gram matte coated art paper.   The
book is hard bound is full color front and back.  The quality
of the photography is excellent and each coin is shown in its
true color.  Allan has worked on this book for over three years
and the result is a superb numismatic achievement.

I have set up a website at coinsofvietnam
Please note these are low resolution scans on my site.

I bought 50 copies from Allan to help him defray his initial
costs of printing 400 copies.  I can offer them to other members
at the discounted price of $37.50 plus $4.50 media/insured to
US addresses."
