hi thank you for the info knew it was germany but could not find in book thanks again - don
You are right, Don, it is elusive. One thing that helps us a lot here is CoinArchives Pro. This is a professional database of auction sales for world coins. The search capability is excellent and can often pull out coins not easily spotted in catalogs. There is a substantial fee for CA Pro, but it is worth it for us. CoinQuest is funded by on-site advertising. - CoinQuest (Paul)
