Munro's Coins of Japan


This item is being offered on eBay now. For those who have been wanting a copy, this is a good chance to acquire one. What is it worth? At this state of preservation, is it worth more or less than a reprint? In this case, I would rather own a reprint edition. What are your thoughts?

From eBay seller: "Condition: Reading copy. Ex library with many library markings. Book has been library rebound. Cover is worn. Lettering on spine is handwritten. One of the plates is missing — however a color photo of that plate from another book is included. The missing plate is between page 6 & 7 and titled “Primitive Treasure.” There are also many small tears throughout the book and some of the tears have been repaired with scotch tape that has since discolored. Binding is tight. Even though the condition of this book is far from idea, it is still a very rare volume and full of useful information and images."

Item #180121530065

UPDATE: It brought $106. If you collect Japanese cash coins, this book is a MUST.
