Chapter 20: Taxation of Coin Collections.

This is a compilation of 384 pages of numismatic knowledge that the collector of coins and paper money won't wanna miss. The ring-folder has aged somewhat for the past 26 years but this slight defect isn't a problem. Remember the old saying that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover.

I'd paid US$25.00 (about SGD$57.00 in 1980) to ship it all the way here from the USA, and thus this compilation might be the only copy around in Singapore after all these doggone years.
