The Coin Collector’s Survival Manual by Scott A. Traver is a great choice for experienced collectors looking for a book chock full of tips and great advice from a professional Numismatist. This book teaches collectors how to buy and sell coins safely, invest in coins, how to store your coins safely, how to avoid scams, tips for Coin Shows, and much much more. Unlike other coin collecting books like Coin Collecting for Dummies, The Coin Collector’s Survival Manual is more tailored towards experienced collectors. I see this more as a positive though, as this means even experienced collectors can benefit from the information this book has to offer. It is written by Scott A. Traver, a former Vice-President of the American Numismatic Association, and it shows as Scott is extremely knowledgeable in the subject. I enjoyed The Coin Collector's Survival Manual very much and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
