From the cover: “This totally revised and up-dated edition of The Bronze Coinage of Great Britain is the most complete standard reference catalogue ever published on pennies, halfpennies and farthings, from the introduction of British bronze coinage in 1860, the year in which the popular and well-known Victorian ‘bun’ head issues appeared, up to and including the decimal coins of today. Full descriptions and over 280 detailed photographs make identification of every known variety simple.

Not only are all currency issues listed, but also every type and variety of patterns, proofs and other trial strikings — those extremely rare coins incorporating designs never adopted as currency.

An additional feature, seldom covered in catalogues, is the vital 1985 Values List, giving the answer to the question most collectors ask: What is my coin worth?
