"Roman Silver Coins - A Price Guide" contains market values in GBP and USD for Roman Silver coins (including very base silver and silver plated/washed) used in the Republic, Imperial Empire and breakaway Gallic, British and other usurper Empires, as well as the later divided East and West Empires.For the first time, the most commonly encountered Silver Roman coins can be inexpensively identified and some idea of value can be gained. The line drawings of most obverse types mean that the legend is clear and readable in the book, and it makes a great aid to identification, as does the alphabetical list of emperors/empresses.Just like its popular partner title (Roman Base Metal Coins - A Price Guide) this book includes instructions on cleaning silver Roman coins and a list of Roman mint town mintmarks. It also includes an alphabetical list of Emperors/Caesars/Empresses and information on Roman coin grading. The book is ordered by design type initially, then chronologically from Augustus onwards. With the introduction of different coin types clearly mentioned, together with some historical notes, it also gives an easy to follow explanation of the Roman base metal coinage and how it changed over 740 years.
