A very good or better set. A great landmark work in German numismatics. Scarce and still indispensable. The work is bibliographically complex.

This set includes the final part and index to the portion of this classic work devoted to the Albertine line of Saxony. Brückmann 125-126. Clain-Stefanelli 9555*. Grierson 147. Hirsch 127.
