Let me attempt to save you some $s by recommending that you not purchase a book to price the ever changing values of foreign coins.
Instead, you may want to initially consider visiting the following web sites which have proven to me to be indispensable insofar as pricing and identifying regular, variety, and generally difficult-to-identify foreign coins:
1) This first site is excellent for general retail values of regular and variety foreign coins. A related picture of the coin is provided about 70% of the time along with an up-to-date price that always appears correctly:http://www.ngccoin.com/poplookup/Wo...e-Guide.aspx
2) I use this next site whenever I encounter a coin that is impossible to identify. This place is the next best solution for coin identification compared to preparing a digital scan of a coin for uploading to the CC for identification.
The pricing, however, is not that accurate and needs to be updated more frequently unfortunately. But once you identify the coin here you can then head back to the above web site at NGC for accurate and current retail prices:http://www.coinquest.com/cgi-bin/cq...-search-form
I hope you find these places helpful in your endeavors.
