This book covers all United States Coins in a concise and logical manner.The book begins with colonial issues,including Spanish and English coins used at that time and then covers coins issued by the United States. The book is well laid out starting with cents and proceeding to $20 gold pieces. Commemorative isues,proof sets, and American Eagles are also covered. Simple guidelines for grading coins are included, but are by no means exhaustive. The real strength of this volume is the pricing guides. Most coin guides give retail prices, but these don't reflect what a coin is worth. The Blue Book gives prices a dealer might actually pay fo a coin. This helps curb over optimist expectations, and helps prevent disappoints. All in all, a great guide to U.S. coins.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
