Book by Ken Peters

Has anyone read The Counterfeit Coin Story by Ken Peters?

http://www.netcollect.co.uk/item816.htm

I'm curious to know what % of the material includes ancients?

Yep. I liked it. He focuses most on forgeries of British coins that have originated in the British Isles, that being where Ken is from. But there's some interesting material in it about forgeries of ancient coins and U.S. coins as well. Maybe a third of it is relevant to ancients.
