Perhaps the greatest contribution to collecting ever made by Fred
Reinfeld was the popularization of world numismatics among Americans..
He wrote about a subject that suffered from a lack of public
awareness in the US. Ironically, before the annual appearance of the
Krause- Mishler opus, "Standard Catalog of World Coins," many young
numismatists thought the twelve coins illustrated in Reinfeld's book
on French coins, or the 15 on Germany comprised the entire series!


Yet, credit where credit is due, he was a pioneer in introducing many
people to the diversity and breadth of "world collecting." His
"Catalogue of the World's Most Popular Coins" was and is a milestone
achievement.


Thank you very much, especially since I am reprinting that book right
now, at this very moment.


Watch the following listings:


http://search.barnesandnoble.com/boo...SBN=4871878007
http://www.amazon.com/dp/4871878007


Within less than one week, you will see "Catalogue of the World's Most
Popular Coins" by Fred Reinfeld listed for sale.


It was a massive job to do this, as the original book has more than
4000 pictures of coins.

Please post again when it is ready. *Will it updated from the last known
edition?


James


No, sorry. It will not be updated.

If you are interested in purchasing it, please watch this spot.

http://search.barnesandnoble.com/boo....asp?ISBN=4871....

Within one or two days Barnes and Noble will start offering it at a
very substantial discount, probably about 25% to 30% off list price.

Then, in about one week more it will go up to full price, which will
be $29.95

(You may wonder how I know this.)

So, if you are sure that you want it, best to buy it right away,
because it will be cheapest then.

The book is out, and published now.

Please take a look,.
