As a beginner coin collector, of course this seemed to be the "gold-standard" book to buy to let me know the value of my coins. But, I have quickly learned that the "Red Book" tends to over-value coins. Don't expect a dealer, or even other hobby collectors to offer you the prices quoted in the Red Book. I recommend that beginning collectors ALSO buy "THE Offical Blue Book, Handbook of United States Coins". This book will not give you the "retail" prices that the "Red Book" will, it will be closer to what dealers will actually offer you !!

This book is a must have for any starter or experienced collector. It not only shows trends for every US coin produced, but info on hoards, private and territorial gold/coins, and detailed info on each coins production (weights, diameters, metal compositions) so one doesn't get "duped" by a fake coin. Love this book

This latest (2007)publication by expert authors gives up-to-date+ values of coins. The color representations of coins is also helpful. The spiral binding allows one to hold the book open while examining one's collection coins with a glass and comparing with photos in the book. The history included with descriptions enlightens and enhances reader's knowledge of the coin of the land. Great book, recommended highly.

And here in 2006 we have the 60th anniversary of what is commonly referred to as "The Red Book", which is of course a guidebook of US coins which encompasses state coinage such as Massachussets, New Jersey and the other colonies, gold coins from the American wild west as well as the Southern mints, pattern and experimental coinage and essentialy a basic guide that every coin collector, coin dealer, hobbyist and even part time student of coins cannot be without. Edited by one of the greats, Kenneth Bressett, this book also makes a great gift for that budding YN !( young Numismatist) As a professional coin dealer I recommend it!

The book, A Guide Book of United States Coins, 2007 69th. Edition, also known as the "Red Book"(and previous and future editions) is the guide for all Coin Collectors, new and experienced. The Red Book details each coin then presents a listing of coins and the coins estimated value based on previous retail sales trends.

Another Whittman Publication, The Offical Blue Book "Handbook of Unites States Coins" is a good companion book that lists the prices that dealers are likely to pay for coins that you have for sale. Again this data is based on dealer purchase price history.

Both of these books give the reader/user a comprehensive understanding of the current coin price trends.

For me this is the Bible for American coin collectors. The spiral bound version is so much better than the paperback.

Just like every other edition of the Red Book for US Coins this edition is well designed and bound (rings). I have had hard cover, paperback style, and the ring bound style redbooks in the past and prefer the ring bound for daily use.

2006 marks the 60th anniversary of the Yeoman GUIDE BOOK OF UNITED STATES COINS, and this new edition edited by Kenneth Bressett assures the classic coin collector's reference remains a hit with its annual analysis of the coin market. Over 6,000 coins with over 30,000 individual values are listed in a resource conveniently pocket-sized in stature for easy take-along on coin hunts. Over 700 new color photos and updated mintages and values based on auction records keep the reference alive and well - and more useful than weightier titles meant as desk references alone.
