The Coin Collector’s Survival Manual The 7th Edition by Scott A. Travers

| user_32330

The Coin Collector’s Survival Manual The 7th Edition by Scott A. Travers was a really long book that taught me a lot. It had a lot of big words that I did not understand, but there were a lot of pictures that were able to help me understand. This is definitely a higher level book, and not very good for YNs. I did learn a lot even though it was hard. For instance, if you collect a lot of valuable coins, they get more valuable over time, and when you’re old, you can sell them for a lot more than you bought them for. The author said they were like stocks, but he said that if you collect coins for money, that you are not going to have as much fun as collecting them because you want to, and then you won’t be a hobbyist. The author also talked about his own collecting experiences a lot, and it helped me to see where he was coming from, because he talked a lot about how he started collecting, and when he was my age. I would recommend this book to a coin collector older than a YN, or an older, very smart YN, but it might be hard still.
