NEW numbering system begins with 1001; COMPLETE (20-page!) concordance between GBC 5 and previous 2 GBC numbering systems as well as Treasury by Meshorer, Ancient Jewish Coinage by Meshorer, and other relevant books for specific series such as Mildenberg for Bar Kokhba coins, Samarian Coinage, Coinage of Philistia, etc.
