Small-Size U.S. Paper Money 10th Ed.

Do you have some small size currency and want to know its value? Leave a comment

So I used a $25 gift card and a Barnes & Noble coupon to get this book in person for $1.87. In store this book is $32.99 + tax. Yes it is cheaper online but trying to get anything delivered to my apartment requires a team from Mission Impossible and two and a half miracles. Now if you through Amazon and do not have any coupons or gift certificates it will be a cheap $21.77 .

I enjoy books they look great in my mini library and I find them faster then computers. That said I use Amazon Kindle app and if these books get to the Kindle faster I will gladly change formats. 



What's New
  • Removed picture under Serial Numbers.
  • Removed star note picture under star notes, that did not have a star.
  • Added photo above Mules.
  • Removed wide and narrow $5 and $10 pictures under Wide and Narrow Margins.
  • Spacing adjusted made to have the next page to start with properly and not in the middle of a paragraph or list.
  • $1 1935-D Narrow picture enlarged.
  • $5 1953-C picture added in full color.
  • Pictures added and removed to adjust for spacing all over.
  • Certain (Sheets) and (Notes) were added.
  • Disclaimers added to most Dark and Light green seals for 1928-1934.
  • Up to 2009 listed for the most part.
  • Generally higher values across the book, some modern notes are lower.
  • Reverse of $5,000 and $10,000 pictures finally added.
  • Expanded Changeover Pairs appendix.
  • 12 more pages but less Color ads in the back.

Disappointments
  • Printed in China (Nothing against China but a U.S. paper book should be printed in the U.S.) 
  • Appendix of fancy serial numbers still not back. 

Overall
All the mistakes I listed from the last edition have been corrected. This one is a vast improvement from the others and if you own only one small size currency book this should be it.


P.S. 2004 $20 EK-* is still listed as 3,840,000 even though I think it should be 384,000. (Unless I'm wrong since this is 3rd time in a row)

P.P.S I found it funny it is still 2011 and they are already selling the 2013 World Coins Book...


Do you have a U.S. bill and want to know its book value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.

I think it's funny about printing the 2013 book, but it's just a way to sell them and make sure people buy them.

I'm definitely going to look into the book.

It's a good book, they sell the DVD and Kindle version also.

Next thing you know they'll be printing Chinese coin/currency books in the US.

For Americans that would be fine for the Chinese it would seem wrong.

Maybe I'm wrong it was just disappointing not that I'm going to stop buying this book.

I have a $10 note series 1950 A printed in Cleveland. It has a couple of folds, but generally good condition. Thoughts anyone?

BTW, serial number is D 51060893 B. Back number 1698. I know that the series ended at D 51120000 B and there were only 75,088,000 of them printed in Cleveland, so in the grand scheme of things it was printed towards the end and is much more rare than say, Boston, New York or Chicago.

About $12.00 it is a high number but that would not add value.

Any book about U.S. currency, should be made in the United States.
