    Coins of England - 2012 (Spink)

    Key Attributes: Up-to-date Price Guide & photos from each reign

Spinks Coins of England 2012 The grandfather of all price guides - updated with copious photos. Covers over 2000 years of English Coins. Most coin dealers will refer to a coin's Seaby/Spink reference number - so this is essential when buying, selling and cataloguing coins.

Since this book lists all English coinage (not just farthings), it can be useful for checking if a coin has been mis-classified. It is all too common for a larger "clipped" coin to be listed as a farthing - now you can check for yourself.
