A complete set of this scarce publication, essential to students of Asian numismatics (primarily China, Japan, Korea and Annam). Smith published original articles and reprinted difficult to find texts on the subject, making this an invaluable journal. The sixth issue consists almost entirely of a reprint of Edward Toda’s Annam and Its Minor Currency. The seventh issue focused on Japan, and reprinted Leon Van De Polder’s Abridged History of the Copper Coins of Japan.
