Pre Order of Part III Reference Catalogue
Pre Order of Part III Reference Catalogue - A Comprehensive World Order Price Guide - Orders, Medals and Decorations of the World (Volume 3, Silver Book), hardcover, containing 462 pages, listing over 5000 items with over 3000 color photos and drawings. Just published by Croatian author Borna Barac who worked on this project for over five years! This book (Volume III) lists awards of each state in great detail, describing many different varieties of each order/medal, and most of the awards are illustrated in color and professionally described. Various grades and issues of each order are described and illustrated. Each item comes with suggested retail prices. Additionally, many of the items are published for the time in the English language. In my opinion definitely the best book of this kind on the market. Volume III is the third of four volumes covering the following states: Germany (Schlesweig-Holstein, Schwarzburg, Thuringen, Thurn und Taxis, Trier, Waldeck, Westphalen, Wurttemburg, Wurzburg, German Reich, Third Reich), Greece, Guatemala, Haiti, Hawaii, Honduras, Hungary, Iceland, India (Princely States), Indochina, Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Latvia, Lebanon, Liberia, Lichtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Madagascar, Mexico, Monaco, Mongolia, Montenegro, Morocco, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Norway, Panama and Paraguay. Volume IV should be out sometime in late 2014 or early 2015. This book is easy to use, B5 size and in high quality print. Suggested retail prices are based on authors research of prices realized at various auction houses in the last several years, as well as prices realized on internet auction sites and asking prices at various medal fairs and internet sites. This is a pre order of the 3rd book in Barac's series. Books will be shipped to buyers upon their delivery to our offices here in Canada in the next 2 months.
