I noticed section of numismatic literature lots in Bill Rosenblum’s upcoming auction sale #44B. Here are a few that caught my eye.
Nazi Counterfeiting of British Currency During World War II
453 Burke, Bryan. Nazi Counterfeiting of British Currency During World War II: Operation Andrew
and Operation Bernhard. 1987. HC, #323 of 1000 copies printed. Long out of print. As new. Plus the 1981 English reprint published by Jorgen Somod
of Denmark of Report on Forgery in Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp which is the December, 1945 report by Julius Sem and Joseph Meyer for the
Czechoslovak Ministry of the Interior. The Burke book has long been considered the definitive study of the Nazi plan to bankrupt England. The last
Burke book we offered, in our sale 33C, brought $125 on a $40 estimate. $125+?
Currency Notes of the Palestine Currency Board
Dabbah, Raphael. The Currency Notes of the Palestine Currency Board. 2005. Hardcover,
423 pages with both dust jacket and slip cover. This is the definitive work on the subject and is among the best books written on any numismatic
subject this century. The results of years of research, it has color illustrations, documented facts and figures and a great feel of telling the
“hidden” stories. I believe that this is the first that we’ve ever offered at auction. It received the 2005 Award as the best numismatic research
from the Israel Numismatic Society. (It should be noted that almost all other awards of the INS are for research on ancient coins!). Almost as new,
but some cover bumps. $200+
Jewish Ghettos’ and Concentration Camps’ Money
468 Stahl, Zvi. Jewish Ghettos’ and Concentration Camps’ Money (1933-1945). 1990. Translated from the Hebrew by Rebecca Sternberg of
London. A good introduction to this field, with many plates plus good and informative text. This was one of the first efforts to appear in English to
do justice to the field. I presume it is long out of print. We haven’t offered one for sale in almost 5 years! A few bumps on cover, otherwise as
new. HC without dust jacket as issued. $35+
