The companion book to this one, the Red book, is spiral bound and much easier to use, plus it seems to be on nicer stock and the printing is sharper. This Blue book could be in a nicer print and paper, but it does the job. It does not provide the amount of detail you find on many coin websites, but it serves as a basic reference. The "wholesale" prices listed seem to be what you might expect to get from a large company specializing in collectible coins, not necessarily what you could expect at a local coin shop. I don't know why the wholesale and retail prices couldn't have been combined in one book, but then they would only sell one book!

This book lists the wholesale prices for rare coins. Other publications cover the retail prices, which are significantly higher. This gives a more realistic view of what a coin dealer might pay for your coins. The book arrived in excellent condition. The reason I rate 4 instead of five stars is that prices change quickly, and this book is only published on an annual basis.

the book is ok but the 2012 red book is much easier to use and much more informational so I would recommend the red book

Very good book for recent coin prices. It is better than the red book because the valuation in the red book is much higher.

Have used this book for years, just to give me an idea of the value of the coins I own. Interesting to know, as well as valuable information before selling your coins to a dealer.
