    Free Book on Old World Spanish Minting Practices

    Well worth the ~6 meg download to add this to your library. On-line book written in Spanish on old world minting practices, but with great pictures of coin making tools and equipment.

    Stan, My two years of High School Spanish won't get me through this. Is there a translation?

    Two years? I think we were only made to take one quarter and I barely passed!

    Anyway, enjoy the pictures as I did. In this case a picture is worth 1000 words (or more). You can probably use an on-line translator like Babblefish for small blocks of text that appear to be of interest.

    On page 44 is one of those master die blocks I talked about in a post last year, from which they would make the die punches. Then they show a punch box where they would keep and draw out punches that sort of looks like an old typeset box.
