Dale Seppa forwarded this press release about a new book on the coins of Ecuador.
ECUADOR COINS – A Pocket Checklist
is a 40 page, 4 by 8 inch booklet that can easily be carried in a back pocket
or the pocket of a sport coat. It allows the collector to record all items
owned so that he/she can determine at a glance, the coins needed to
complete his/her collection. There is enough space provided so that prices
and grades can be written down as well as notes about significant offerings.
The book can be used by either date collectors or type collectors.
It includes all Ecuadorian issues from the proto-coinage used before the
first coins were struck in Quito through the coins issued after the
Dollarizacion. The cover of the book bears the effigy of Simon Bolivar as
found on many early Ecuadorian coins. The book starts with Introduction/
Comments to include brief comments about available literature such as the
Krause catalogs, and the detailed histories by Anderson and Hoyos. A
short table on abbreviations used in the book finishes this first section.
The book is roughly divided into logical sections which are essentially
chronological with the exception that silver and base metal coins are clearly separated from gold issues and the very early, counter stamped issues and/or non-standard issues are placed in separate sections at the rear of the book.
The delineated sections are as follows;
Pre-Decimal Silver Coinage
Decimal Silver and Base Metal Coinage
Pre-Decimal Gold Coinage
Decimal Gold Coinage
Decimal Patterns and NCLT Coinage
Early and Unusual Coinage including the various
Counterstamped, Pattern, Offmetal and Mint Sport issues.
Various recent “coins” struck for the Galapagos
The book finishes with a seven page section on the grading of Ecuadorian coins. It not only has several pages of verbal descriptions of the various grades but includes photos of about fifteen Ecuadorian coins in various states of preservation.
Due to the omnipresence of The Standard Catalog of World Coins, in its many guises, all of the issues in this booklet are tied to KM numbers where possible. As the Krause series of books is now the world standard it would have been a disservice to collectors to do otherwise. The KM catalog numbers from that series of books are now used throughout the world by collectors from most countries. Those catalogs are available from the publisher, Krause Publications in Iola, WI USA or from many dealers that specialize in world coinage
