Picture Book of Ancient Coins

The Million Book Project, now called The Universal Library Project, brings us another book on ancient coins.

Picture Book of Ancient Coins (1960), by Fred Reinfeld and Burton Hobson, 64 pages.

This book is part of the 'Visual History Series' and seems to be written for school children. The PDF file provided by the Archive is black-and-white and the coin images are just black blobs.

I couldn't find the original high-resolution scans, and thus can't re-encode this as a grayscale PDF. This is bad news for the Archive -- if people are to use art books, the Archive must provide them in grayscale.
