"Medals of the Russian Empire, Part 5, 1855-1881" Mikhail Diakov, C 2006.
Part 5 of the comprehensive series by Mikhail Diakov. Presents hundreds of medals, crosses and table medals from the reign of Alexander II, including all die variations. Unlike any previous catalogues, it includes Novodels, medals officially made by the mint specifically for collectors, in metal other than that of the original.
Photos are accompanied by enormous amount of information about each specimen, such as group number and name, date, cross-references to well-known catalogues and auctions sales, names of the engravers, diameter, die-cutter's marks, close-ups of significant medal fragments, as well as other relevant characteristics. For easier search the author offers an alphabetical index of Russian and Latin legends.
Truly revolutionary catalogue, outshining any previous publications on the subject. Absolutely indispensable for the serious medal collector or researcher.
