Standard Catalog of World Paper Money: Modern Issues 1961 - Present 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Henry_Berry More than 1 year ago
This 15th edition has improvements in both content and format. Besides price increases where warranted, there is also more detail on illustrations and signatures on many pieces. Notes are now listed under the name of the historical country that issued them, not as formerly under the present-day name of the country. The example editor Cuhaj uses in his Introduction to this new edition is British Honduras is now separate from Belize. Also North Korea and South Korea are catalogued separately instead of together under Korea. Similarly for Northern Ireland. Users want to know this because the present-day and now-gone historical countries of the world are listed alphabetically. The CD of this edition has improvements also over the first CD found in the previous edition. It may "take some time to load" Cuhaj mentions, but this is because of the amount of data on it. The CD contains all the content of the voluminous, 1,000-page-plus catalog in PDF format. The CD is especially helpful because keyword searches can be done with it. Though the straightforward and detailed format of the catalog down to current prices for different grades of notes enables most users to find what general information and specifics they are looking for readily enough. With the CD, though, each note can be magnified up to 300% its size for scrutiny of details. Collecting paper money reached the popularity of coin collecting in the end of the 1970s. Globalization of business, world travel, multicultural interests, and the disappearance and the founding of many new countries in the modern era all contributed to the jump in paper money's popularity. For beginning collectors, the front section "How to Use This Catalog" is a succinct introductory guide to the field. Notwithstanding its title with reference to this major catalog, this section has explanations of the printing of notes and gradings, advise on caring for a collection, definitions, material on terms of foreign, non-English, notes, and other fundamentals relevant apart from their connection with the catalog. The publication of a 15th edition speaks for the place this work has established in the field of collecting paper notes. It has long been recognized by the most advanced and specialized collectors as the leading reference for its comprehensiveness and authoritativeness; and thus has also attracted the use of collectors at all levels.
