Cash in Your Coins: Selling the Coins You've Inherited, 2nd Edition

Cash in Your Coins: Selling the Coins You've Inherited, 2nd Edition

by Beth Deisher




The updated and expanded second edition of Beth Deisher’s best-selling Cash In Your Coins is a book for anyone who’s inherited a collection (or hoard) of old coins. How rare are they? What are they worth? Should you sell? Where do you even begin? Just as important, Cash In Your Coins gives peace of mind to today’s coin collectors, who can keep a copy of the book with their collection and then rest assured that their heirs will benefit from Deisher’s expert advice. Updated with 2014 tax and estate-law information, and expanded with new case studies.

"More than a book, it’s a blessing. Not like any coin book that has ever been written before.” — Michael Nottelman, “Coin Show Radio”.
