NEW BOOK: THE VALUE OF THE SESTERTII

David Sundman forwarded this announcement of a new book (and series of books) on grading and pricing Roman coins. Thanks! -Editor

THE VALUE OF THE SESTERTII This book is the first of a set The Value of the Coins intended as a guide to coin collecting to enable the beginners to grade properly coins according to their condition. The way to do it is to show the pictures of the two faces of 300 coins from the most widely collected Sestertii in different condition grades and justify the market price of each one according to the grade, rarity and patina quality. Therefore the book is not intended to substitute the current catalogues but to complement them with accurate advises about how to assess condition grades for each particular coin.

The book has 60 chapters, 600 photographs gently yielded by the current owners of the coins and more than 500 pages. Every chapter contains an introduction about the main events from each emperor from Augustus to Postumus, giving particular importance to the related numismatic aspects. The book includes price quotations for 44 emperors in 11 grades from Good to Extremely Fine.
