The society publishes many different books on various aspects of perfins, mostly those of Great Britain. These books are the result of various researches undertaken over, in most cases, many years.

Roy Gault is the Society's Catalogue Editor, responsible for editing the "New Illustrated" catalogue, the standard reference for GB perfin collectors, and many of our other printed catalogues.

New Illustrated Catalogue (print)

Edited by Roy Gault

The New Illustrated Catalogue is the essential reference for collectors of GB perfins. It illustrates all known GB perfin dies and allocates each one a unique catalogue number.
