Finished over two months ahead of schedule!

After a lot of delay caused by many factors, the revision of my catalog of Northern Song Dynasty Cash Varieties, originally published between 2000 and 2004 in the format of 40-page journals, was about 3/4 finished as of the date of this post. I finished the last page at 8 p.m. on March 31, and after redesigning the cover and adding the TOC and some other things, the catalog was published on April 6, 2016. Here are some details about the new catalog...

This edition is coil bound so that the pages can lie flat when the catalog is open and in use. Publication size: 8½ x 11" 

Sample Pages

Sometime after the release of NSDCVG 2016 in hard copy, it will also be available in eBook format as well as in an interactive online form which will be available on a subscription basis. The online version will be constantly updated, and for each rubbing actual coin photographs will be made available, as the coins turn up in the collections of the author and subscribers.
