Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

For inquiries from users with coins they believe to be valuable, it's best to acquire regularly an inexpensive price guide to U.S. coins; the "Red Book" (R.S. Yeoman's annual, A Guide Book of United States Coins ) is the most widely cited. For collectors and those with general interests, however, Breen's work is virtually a one-volume library of American numismatics, with a remarkably high percentage of information valuable to both novices and experts. The text and extensive illustrations explain the history and varieties of all U.S. coins, from colonial times to today. Relative rarity in various grades is indicated, but values are given only in special cases. Alan M. Stahl, A merican Numismatic Soc., New York
Copyright 1988 Reed Business Information, Inc.

From the Publisher

Drawing on a lifetime of research, America's top coin historian presents the most comprehensive guide to U.S. coins ever published. The definitive numismatic reference book, with over 4,000 illustrations.
