The 69th and latest edition of the trusty "Handbook of US Coins" (AKA "The Blue Book") continues to uphold its reputation as THE guide to average dealer buying prices for US coins.
Coins are illustrated with sharp B&W photography and prices are listed for several different (but not all) grades.
The catalog is well laid out and easy to use.
Whether or not your coin dealer will actually pay the prices listed is problematic, since much depends on accurate grading and the elusive quality of "eye appeal", among other factors.
The "Blue Book" is the perfect companion for the venerable "A Guide Book of US Coins" (AKA "The Red Book").

This book is exactly what I needed. It gives very clear details as to how to grade each coin and what to expect to receive if you sell to a dealer. Couldn't be simpler.

Book arrived incredibly fast. It was at my door within 24 hours and I used the standard shipping.

if you want to know what the dealers will pay for your coinage, this is a great reference. get your coins professionally graded and then use this book to give you a range for wholesale values.

This is the first new handbook I had for US Money since 1980 and it is much improved. It is easier to use and is right on 'THE MONEY' and I mean that seriously! I recommend it highly!

Very easy to follow and find items in this book. Good information and pricing data to give you an idea of its value. Picture quality is good. Color pictures would be a nice benefit in future versions.
