Numismatic Tools Of The Trade #1

Coins | FortWorthCollector

With this blog for the most part I will be staying away from books and magazines just for the reason that there are so many out there. They are all great and have valuable information that is needed to be a successful numismatist but a Morgan Dollar book is not much use to a large cent collector. So listing a lot of books that not everyone will be interested in or use is not the point of this blog. With that being said I did have to start this blog out with the red book just because it is the main general source of information about U.S. coins. If you are collecting any U.S. coins at all this is a reference that you have to have on your book shelf. As most of you that are reading this know the red book comes in many different versions every year and are always well worth the low cover prices. I myself prefer the deluxe editions as they contain more information overall and every year they focus even extra information on a single denomination. The one in the photos focuses on cents but I am longingly waiting for the dollar version to come out in about three years. For those of us that would prefer not to have to drag an Encyclopedia with us every where we go they also make a regular hard cover and spiral bound edition. They contain enough information that you will be covered in the field but will be missing some more advanced data. If you are currently using the regular edition I would definitely recommend checking out the deluxe edition the next time you see a copy.
