Longstrider's Blog

I recently, 17 April, put up a blog on my Mexican Un Peso Caballito. It received some nice comments with a few people never hearing about this famous coin. So I thought I'd put up a blog on my main reference book about it. This blog is going to be a short one on my feelings about the book. If you want a more detailed review I suggest you go to Amazon. The author is Allan Schein and the entire book is written in English and Spanish. If one is interested in the Caballito coin this is a must have reference book. The illustrations and photos are numerous and very beautiful and clear. It goes over the varieties of the coin with clear examples. One also learns a great deal about the designer Charles Pillet and illustrates some of his other works on coins and medals. It is simply "THE" book on  Belleza Mexicana/Mexican Beauty one should read before you spend your money on a coin to learn what it could be. Thanks for reading!

Beautiful pics. Thanks for the info and your interest. It's nice to see how many numismatists are really absorbed in their specialties.

I have all the information from you. When you first presented the coin I could tell by its beauty it was not only rare but very desirable. Thank you for the updated information. Good solid information. Mike
