CANADIAN TOKEN CATALOGUE STYLE GUIDE

Alan Roy writes: "The discussion about style rule books reminded
me of a book in my collection called "Standard Format & Symbols for
the Listing of Canadian Tokens as Recommended by the Canadian
Numismatic Research Society".  It lists standard abbreviations for
material, colour, and shapes, as well as a standardized rarity scale
("Pricing items is _not_ recommended; a rarity number will handle this
information much better.").  It also has templates for title page,
copyright page, and even recommends that your catalogue should be 6"
X 9".  Alas, the Society could not reach a consensus on a standard
numbering system and recommends the author chooses whatever system
they feel is best.

This book was published by the society in 1968 and is 16 pp.
Another version for listing Canadian medals was published in 1972,
but I don't have a copy.  If anybody has one for sale, I just might
be interested."
