Arranged in the order of the year commemorated rather than the date of issue, stamp and coin is illustrated with full size photographs. A paragraph describes the history of the event thus memorialized, the designers' methods and the symbolism employed. Catalog numbers for stamps and coins accompany the text. Probable values quoted are based on prices obtained at recent auctions. Part of the publisher's Visual History Series, this is a welcome addition to collections serving those hobbyists whom current surveys show to be the fastest growing hobby group.
