Received this book in the mail today and started right into it. Came to an article written about the "Black Sea Hoard" with illustrations on modern forgeries and how to tell if its a fake or real. Realized that I had literally just bought one of these Mesembrian diobol fakes hours before on Ebay. Caught it in enough time to freeze my account and get a full refund for this forged coin. This book just saved me lots of money and the embarrassment of buying a modern day forgery. This book payed for itself and more instantly. A must for anyone looking to get into collecting ancient Greek coins.
