Interesting book for all those collectors who are interested in entires of the German Shield Issues of 1872 - 1874. On the 352 pages of the book are shown 1000 covers and cards in b&w.

The entires are described in brief but exponentially and - and this is the special value of this catalogue - for each of them is shown the price, to be exact: the price this item was sold for at one of the auction companies. Thus you will have the real prices and not only estimates. If you add further 20 to 25 percent (auction surcharge) you will exactly know what this card or cover is worth or at least was worth a buyer.

Although the catalogue is written in German, also experiened collectors who do not know this language will understand most of it.
