I had an e-mail earlier from greenlight publishing asking "Are you looking for a Father's Day gift?" Well I was not.

On the other hand if you placed an order of over £15 and used the code FD2022 they would give you a free copy of " Identifying Roman Coins" by Richard Reece & Simon James.

So as recently I have had a couple of nice buckles and needed help identifying them (thanks Steve and Cath :thumbsup: ) I decided to get the book "Buckles 1250-1800" by Ross Whitehead which looks good and seems popular for myself.
£17.50 for a good reference book seems fair and having another costing £15 thrown in as a freebie has to be a bonus :thumbsup:

The buckles book is very good.
I might head over and look at the Roman Miliary book they have.

Thanks

It is a super book and much nicer to use than the PDF version. :thumbsup:
Good things come to those who wait.

I can't get on with reference books on a screen. I need to have a physical copy.

It's a really good reference book, been most helpful to me.

Sounds like a good offer and I might plod on over and order a copy of Gin Drinking In The Dark Ages - How It Changed History if it's still in print :thumbsup:

That buckle book is brilliant. Sadly though their special offer is,a disincentive to buy for me - no idea why :lol:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

I am impressed with the service from greenlight publishing. I put the order in very late on Thursday night, got a response Friday morning and the books arrived today (Sat).

I have only quickly looked at the Buckles book, but initialy thought is that it looks very good. For a "Freebie" I am more than happy with the Roman Coins book too, just a shame I so rarely find any, but as the last was probably 4 or 5 years ago I might be due another soon.

Yeah they usually get them out really quickly. The buckles book is one of my favourite books, in content and layout.
