5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable 24 Aug 2013
By Patrick
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
David Sears' guide to the Byzantine coinage is an absolute must-have for anyone with an interest in the series. There are many books on Byzantine coins, but most are very specialised with a hefty price tag. Sears' book is the only one that covers the entire series in a single volume and is essentially complete. Apart from a few exceptionally rare coins, every Byzantine coin is described here. Sadly, the book has been out of print for about 20 years, but second-hand copies can still be found. If you have an interest in Byzantine coins, especially if you are a collector, then don't hesitate, just buy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Byzantine Coins and Their Values 25 April 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This book is perhaps the best single volume reference on Byzantine coins currently available. It is a great guide for both the beginner and novice collectors as well as the advanced collector on a budget who doesn't want spend a small fortune on the Dumbarton Oaks collection of Byzantine coin references.
This book is well organized and illustrated with many examples on the same page as the listing, rather than having to turn to the back of the book to view plates in order to check the picture of the coin. Coins are listed by decreasing denomination within a seperate section for each mint for every emperor. This makes it easier to identify a coin if only the mint or emperor is known. Cross references to other catalogue numbers such as those in Dumbarton Oaks are given for each listing as well.
Prices are listed in two different grades in UK pounds and are closer to real market values than Sear's other references on ancient coins and their values.

While not quite the resource of Sear's Roman series, this book is still one of the best books out there for folks trying to identify Byzantine coins.
