Howard Daniel reports that his latest catalog was finally delivered to his book representative in Ho Chi Minh City on May 22. Congratulations! Howard provided the following information. -Editor The catalog is the Socialist Republic of Viet Nam Coins and Currency and it covers the financial instruments issued in Viet Nam from 1978 to date, to include, legal tender coins and notes, limited circulation bank checks, tokens, foreign exchange certificates, tokens, bonds, etc., etc.
There are also checklists at the back for collectors to inventory their collections. It is printed on the same high quality paper and cover as the annual Japanese Numismatic Dealers Association catalog, but in a slightly larger format.
It will sell for 250,000 Dong in Ho Chi Minh City at Saigon Coins & Stamps and the email there is SaigonCoin@cs.com. There is not yet a price for it in the USA and elsewhere because the shipping costs from Viet Nam to the USA have to be added to the calculation before it can be determined. There are two dealers in the USA who will be resellers. The first is Scott Semans at www.CoinCoin.com. And the second is Sema at www.ArtofHanoi.com.
They do not yet have their copies or a price so buyers can only notify them they are interested in purchasing it and to be notified once their shipment arrives. It will be much more efficient to order a copy from the two dealers because I am constantly traveling and not always available to ship them.
I will be selling the card cover version from the USA and can be contacted at HADaniel3@msn.com. But I am also planning to make about twenty-five hardcover versions of the catalog as done for my last catalog; Democratic Republic of Viet Nam Coins and Currency, which covers their issues from 1945 to 1978. This version will be for those bibliomaniacs wanting a hardcover for their library. Please remember, there is not yet a date and price either versions of the new catalog.
Again, congratulations to Howard on his latest publication and many thanks for his perseverance; his ordeal with his printer has been chronicled here and is ongoing. I'm glad he's thinking of us bibliophiles; those with an interest in the topic are encouraged to snap up the hardcover versions, so get your orders in. -Editor
