The 100 Greatest Ancient Coins Autograghed By Author For SaleHarlan J. Berk, the founder and president of Harlan J. Berk Ltd., has just completed the most important literary work of his long career. The book "The 100 Greatest Ancient Coins” was written at the request of the Whitman Publishing Company, which also publishes the Red Book and other works in the "100 Greatest Coins" series. The coins covered in this volume range from the first typeless electrum struck in Asia Minor in the 7th Century B.C. to the desperate silver issues of the last Byzantine emperor, Constantine XI, in 1453. Coins of major rarity are discussed as well as common issues that had a strong social, political or economic impact on their time. This is one of the few books that covers the entire time frame of ancient numismatics. While it is a useful book for beginners, it is also worthwhile for experienced numismatists since a number of newly discovered coins and new interpretations are part of this 140 page book.
