This review doesn't apply to the book itself which contains useful information. However, what good is that when you can't access the information? As a few other reviews have mentioned the binding on this book is horrendous. Even going through and turning every page one page at a time doesn't do anything towards relieving the problem. As soon as a few pages are turned and then you attempt to return to an earlier section you encounter the same problem with not being able to fully open the pages. Well that's if your extremely lucky because in reality the flimsy paper pulled taunt by the binding simply rips much of the time. This review goes to the letter for the other volume as well as it has the exact same issue going on. It's so bad I can't believe that someone got copies of these books during proofing and actually approved this binding design.

I got the digital edition and hooked for better quality photos, but no, they aren't. I also hoped for a better index but again, no.

This is only worth the money because I don't know of anything better.

Good book, I am going to buy the cents nickels dimes guide, don't expect that in this book. Overall good purchase, I recommend studying some of the basics in numismatics so don't make this your first book if you have taken up the hobby.

I'm new to collecting coins and got this book to familiarize myself with spotting coins that may be of interest. It's a nice book and I have spent many hours reading it. I'm very happy with the information I've learned so far.

It is a great addition to my growing library of coin collecting books. All though the pictures of the coins are not in color, the black and white photos are very detailed so you know what you are looking for.

Didn't know about or what this series of books were. Glad I have it. While not complete versus another book I have, it is more expansive and much better at educating you on what you are looking at and looking for. A must have.

I love it so far, and it made me realize I need new glasses for two reasons...to not miss anything written here, and to be able to see the type coins it lists better in person...a must have read, and for future reference and enjoyment of this type of aventures in coin collecting!

Loads of excellent information. I would think that any serious intermediate Collector would really enjoy this book if you are into attribution. My opinion is that Beginner's would also benefit if they are willing to devote plenty of time to understand the detail. I own both volumn's 1 & 2, and have made a few good finds using the descriptions and photos.
