CNG Book auction closes tonight

CNG's auction 72 closes tonight, including 800 lots of books mostly on ancient coins.

Some really excellent stuff is being offered at extremely low estimates, including Daehn's Ancient Greek Numismatics — A Guide to Reading and Research in *hardcover* estimated at $20, all three volumes of Lindgren in *hardcover* estimated at $100 (the first volume is nearly unattainable in hardcover). Also a complete run of Bulletin on Counterfeits estimated at $100.

Some turkeys, like An Inventory of Greek Coin Hoards estimated at $30 (available new from the publisher for $7).

There are a number of titles I'd like to purchase for the Digital Historia Numorum image project. Unfortunately I'm going to hold back — too many other commitments this summer, and I still haven't found time to scan my BMC Mysia. However, I'd encourage all my readers who are successful to consider taking an evening and scanning plates for this worthwhile project.
