Book Review For Adventure Across The States National Park Quarters

Young Numismatists Exchange | user_86205

     In my opinion, this book does a fantastic job in covering base numismatic knowledge in less than one hundred pages. The start of the book well explains coin history, grading, proper storage, fundamental terminology, and types of coins in just few pages. A non collector could pick up the book and could know just as much as an average collector. The book than goes into the one thing some coin collecting pass over. The history. The author then goes into detail explaining why each national park is special, and all the historical action that has taken place at each one. Each national park is summarized up oustandly well in the few words written to describe for many, speechless places. It then continues on to give information about online clubs for beginners to join. I think this book deserves five stars because of all that was accomplished in this short, informative, and useful book. I believe it summarized each national park outstandingly well in such few words.  This book was an amazing numismatic read.

Glad to see this book available. National Park 25c do not seem as popular as Statehood 25c.

Sounds like I answered this already. It depends on the coins the author most coin books are about specific things either coins you own or need it's up to each individual collector. Look at our library 127,000 books on anything your looking for that seems easier for me than searching. I call them tell them what I'm looking for they send it to you. Don't forget to send it back. It's cheaper than buying them all. Thanks Mike.

Pocketful of History. I will need to check this out. Can't wait for the YN auction this September.
