    What year was it published and is it as well researched as Resplandores?

    Based on these two excerpts, sometime after 2008 and before 2019
     

    VOL.XIH DECEMBER 2008 NO.IV
    A STUDY OF THE MINOR SILVER REALES OF THE HERMOSILLO MINT
    By Dave Busse C-58
    ...This article has been adapted from a book I am writing that covers Republic of Mexico Silver Real
    Minors. It specifically addresses the issues from the Hermosillo Mint In the book, every
    mint that produced silver real minors is being covered in a similar manner. In addition, a
    Checklist, which will be in a separate volume, is being written and several serious
    collectors and/or former collectors have contributed to it. Therefore, the checklist will
    contain quite a few more varieties than one sees in the popular catalogs such as Krause
    2009, etc. If anyone has detailed photographs, either regular or digital, of better condition
    lAR, V2R, 1R, 2R or 4R from any mint and would be willing to share them, I would be
    most grateful and will credit you in the book...

    ...two new books that were showcased
    were Dave Busse’s A Minor Challenge. A study of
    Mexican Republic ¼, ½, 1, 2 & 4 Reales Die Styles and
    Brad Yonaka’s A Variety Guide to the Pillar Coinage of
    the Guatemala, Bogota, Lima, Potosi and Santiago
    Mints 1751-1771.

    Does anyone know how many pages this book contains? By the way thanks for helping and not laughing (I don't know why some find it funny since I am trying to understand a book I had zero knowledge about before it was brought up by pruebas).

    I appreciate you been respectful!!!

    And I just posted on the other topic: ."...updated Resplandores.." a url link to a video conversation by the author related to this book. But no images of the cover and back of the book, but it includes many of the pages.
