Coin World Comprehensive Catalog & Encyclopedia of United States Coins: Including Pre-Federal Coinage, Pioneer Gold and Patterns Reviews
This book was useful for the reason I bought it. I got it for verification of information. It gave me that and if it would not have, I would have been disappointed. If I did not think it was going to produce what I wanted, I should not have bought it in the first place. Conclusion: Use good judgment decisions before you buy....
I received what I asked for.
This book has many similarities to the Red Book, but it goes into considerably more detail, alerting the reader to the rarity of many coins in high grades and adding information on rare, unusual coins such as the unique Jefferson nickel of the wartime issues struck with its mintmark in the original location. Such details make this book far superior to the Red Book, lacking only the yearly update of prices to truly dominate the field. It also contains a section on patterns, entirely lacking in the Red Book. Comprehensiveness and good formatting earn this book its high rating, and easily justify it as a general reference despite it's out of date status.
Very good numismatic reference book, one of the most extensive grade details and price guide. a must have.
