Numismatic References

There comes a time when one's numismatic reference library becomes so disorganized that creating a list is the only way to get things back on track. Below is an ongoing list of numismatic references, some of which I have in my library and some I need to eventually acquire. This list is by no means exhaustive and will be updated as I have time and learn of appropriate titles to add.
