Clain-Stefanelli 2344*; Daehn 3428; Kroh 24 (3½ stars) – “This monograph firmly established the crucial place of die-study in numismatics. While examining the Demanhur Hoard [Newell] discovered that many issues attributed by Müller on the basis of symbols to widely separated mints were in fact die-linked and so all had to emanate from the same, very prolific, central mint.”
