This interesting, easy to read collector's handbook is an excellent value. The price of the book is more than reasonable, based on the extensive amount of information in just 76 pages. As a beginning collector of Civil War memorabilia, especially paper items, I found the photographs to be very helpful. Also, this book has a lot of information on collecting Civil War soldiers' equipment and has two chapters on edged weapons and firearms. As someone who has collected a wide variety of items from toys to china over the past twenty years,I was pleasantly surprised to find some excellent basic tips and reminders for either beginning or more advanced collectors in any field.Was this review helpful?
