MEXICAN BEAUTY BOOK REVIEW

Library | Longstrider

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!
