Numismatic Books

Numismatic Literature

Rita has been bugging me since we moved almost 6 years ago to reduce the size of our library and to sell some of the books that are packed in cartons throughout our office and house. With this list we are attempting to do so. We hope to have a book list at least once a month.

Shipping is extra on all books. Please figure $5 for the first book and $3 for each additional book. Books will be sent Media Mail unless Priority Mail (more expensive) is requested. Shipping rates are for US orders only. Shipping books to other countries has become very expensive and in many cases the shipping overseas will be more expensive than the book itself.

When books are not new we have tried to describe the condition to the best of our ability. We will at times use numismatic grading terms, not book grading terms, to describe the condition of the books. No photos for this list although if you need a scan of the cover we will try to provide it.
