    As a novice in coin collecting, I found this book to be very informative
    and helpful. The information is interesting and easy to read and
    understand. It does not get bogged down with unnecessary details and
    irrelevant material. I have followed the author's suggestions and
    already have found a number of coins for my new collection. What a fun
    hobby! Thanks for getting me started.

    Highly Recommended - Great book!

    This is a very good book that has already paid for itself. The descriptions are clear and make coin roll hunting very easy to learn. The book is perfect for any beginner - you don't need any previous coin knowledge.
