A complete set of this scarce publication, essential to students of Asian numismatics (primarily China, Japan, Korea and Viet Nam), most attractively housed in a recently crafted clamshell box. 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.
