Guide Book of US Currency 6th Edition by Kenneth Bressett

A Guide Book of United States Currency, 6th Edition

Hobby legend Kenneth Bressett covers large-size, small-size, and fractional paper money in the newly revised and updated 6th edition of the Guide Book of United States Currency.

A perennial favorite among hobbyists, United States Currency appeals especially to beginning and intermediate collectors, but its solid and engaging numismatic text (written by the longtime senior editor of the Guide Book of United States Coins) is valuable for established collectors and dealers as well.

Features include: Many upgraded full-color photographs • Market values in up to seven grades • Each note identified by the hobby-standard Friedberg number • Historical information on every note series • Advice on how to collect and store paper money • Grading instructions • Guidance on detecting counterfeits • Special sections on valuable varieties, uncut sheets, error notes, and more.

 352 pages, 6 x 9 inches, softcover, richly illustrated in full-color, with many updated photographs.
