Must Have Books

Do you have any coin or currency and want to find out its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

I just received from Barnes & Nobles these two books.

webbo1

The big 2300+ pages book is the 2006 Standard Catalog of World Coins 1901-Present it contains retail values of every modern coin from every country within it's time frame. The second book is the Official Price Guide Redbook of U.S. Coins 2006(Hardcover) it focuses on United State issue coins from the begin of America until now, this 59th edition has changed formats to now be completely color coded, it use to look professional now it looks a bit childish.

The total price for my order was $62.38 but with online coupons and other discounts I paid $31.21, but the best part for me was I ordered it online yesterday and it came this afternoon. I've bought from www.bn.com before and never paid close to full price. Granted last year I bought these two books from Amazon.com at an even lower price.

My experience with both online booksellers are good, Barnes & Noble and Borders in person though gave me problems by constantly being low stocked or just charging full price.

I first got these two books from Edward R. Hamilton for less then $20 they sell books only through the mail and only by check or money order I bought plenty of books from them and they never disappointed. Generally there stock is out of date books which is good for first time collectors.

I have many books and magazines about coins and currency on every aspect including errors and grading. I don't have anything on ancient coins since you can't find them out-of-pocket, but if I ever do I'll go to Hobbyblog first he has a great site and many links for ancient coins.

It will take me a while to update all the prices for my coin collection and I will also see if the prices I quoted in this blog have changed if so I'll update accordingly. I also use Coin Values magazine so they update every month.

Update:
Krause World Coin:
I've gone through most of my foreign coins and a little sad to see that a few of the coins I had gone down in value. I'm more disappointed that the mintage for many 2000 and newer coins are still not in. For Euros especially disappointed. More images are included.

Red Book:I still don't care for the new layout but it is faster to go through, next I'll get the spiral version it's easier to manage.

16 dollars worth, for Comments/Questions click here.:
