cob specialist, It goes into great detail, I was surprised how much there is to learn about cobs.
with the help of this book I made a fantastic purchase from ebay, I picked up a fantastic cob worth 5 times the
price I paid, The seller had no idea ! good thing he did not have this book.
The book is very well priced and has paid for itself 10 times over, I would recommend this book to anyone !!!
It is my bible, and I use it as my reference before I buy any cobs.
Cheers, Sam Lopez
Yes there are problems with the book, but there is honestly no better book on the market. This book has great information on all the mints, the most extensive collection of pictures of nearly every type of coin from all the mints and very good desrciptions of everything.
