When I ordered the CD version of the book I expected a high quality factory pressed, factory labeled and factory sealed product. I got instead a burned CD-R with a paper, ink-jet printed label sticker that doesn't even work on any of my DVD-CD units! So I ended up paying 75 dollars plus another 33 dollars customs tax (for Netherlands) for a complete piece of crap. While I am hoping to get my 75 dollars back from as I am returning the CD, the 33 dollars I paid for customs are gone, and so is my respect for those who marketed such a piece of crap!
PRICES: Well updated. However the European ones seem slightly lower if compared to American coins prices. The pricing of coins in Very Fine condition would be quite desirable, at least for 19th century coins.COMPLETENESS: absolutely enhanced, especially regarding the Asian countries, representing a very difficult area.GRAPHICS : Excellent and exact.CD QUALITY: Not impeccable: I had some difficulties, probably due to dust or travel problems.
It is unlikely that in a book you will find all the coins from ancient to modern times.Since no one has done better - Friedberg has a passing grade from me!
