I just purchased this book: Standard Price Guide to World Crowns and Talers 1484-1968 As Cataloged by Dr John S. Davenport. I have been bitten by the Taler bug, and while the only whole Taler I own is a Maria Theresia restrike, I hope to own more of these beauties. @micbraun and @Rheingold have been helping me look for one solid Taler to buy. Seems I’m pickier than anticipated and pickier than my budget allows. After sifting through over 5,000 Talers on Ma-Shops (@ma-shops love the Website), I decided I needed to buy the book and learn. Unfortunately, most of Davenport’s actual hardcover works are going for $100+, so I decided to start small with this 1984 2nd and final price catalog. I’m not sure what to expect, but I hope it’s a good start and for it being like new and $30 shipped, I felt I couldn’t go wrong. I made a list of “wants” and it seems my taste falls generally in the 16 and 1700s. Feel free to post any recommended literature or Talers of your own!
