Books for Grading and Determining US Coins Values
The 2012 Redbook not only contains practical information (like how much you should pay for a coin), but it includes articles on: investing, coin grading, how to detect counterfeits, the history of United States coinage, famous shipwrecks, renowned hoards and world-famous collections. It’s no wonder that, after 65 years, the Redbook has become the world’s best-selling, most informative Coin Book of its kind.
Yet if the Redbook helps those who buy, what about collectors looking to sell? The new 2012 Blue Book: A Handbook of US Coins not only provides extensive mintage and historical information--along with tips for grading and collecting coins--but it lists what a dealer will pay for a coin. Since 1942, the Blue Book has served as an annual reference for investors, offering a simple, timely approach to the fruitful market of coins.
Also available at Provident Metals is the distinguished guidebook endorsed by the American Numismatic Association, Photograde: Official Photographic Grading Guide for United States Coins. A virtual encyclopedia of grading, this simple-to-understand Coin Book is comprised of more than 1,000 photographs and descriptions of regular-issue United States coins dating back to 1793. Indeed, this comprehensive guide has sold over a half a million copies, making it a worldwide authority in the science of grading coins.
