The book is just what I neded to see what dealers would pay for coins I want to sell. I would recommend it to anyone who looked at prices in the red book.

First thing to keep in mind is that anyone buying this book is looking to see what their collection is worth. If you need to insure your collection or you are planning to sell off part or all of it, you need some idea of what to ask for it. For those reasons this book will come in very handy. Having said that, I must admit it does contain a few gaps in the area of very old gold coins, and the same for silver ones. Over all worth the money.2012 Handbook of U.s.

I'm not an expert on coins but have a number of pre '64 items. This book has the information I need to estimate grade and value. It contains a brief individual instruction for most types on determining grade plus circulation and estimated value.

The Red Book gives the reader an idea of what the coins cost while the Blue Book gives an idea of for what they sold. I've discovered that the difference between purchase and resale can be as much as 75%, with 50% difference being the average. Please keep in mind that the prices in both the Red Book and Blue Book are about a year old because of publishing constraints. Overall, I use this book and an online site by a large coin grading service to determine the true value of coins. For serious coin traders, the Grey Sheet is a better indicator but its cost is prohibitive to many of us who collect for reasons unrelated to making a living buying and selling coins. The information in this book is worth the price alone. Always read (and buy) the book first, then buy or sell the coin.

I have found the book to be very helpful in making a determination of the value of some old silver dollards
that I have been accumulating over the years. I am about to be ready to sell them and had no earthly idea
of their worth, The book goes into detail on this information.
