Book Review For The Coin Collector's Survival Manual, Revised Seventh Edition.

Young Numismatists Exchange | user_86205

The author of the book, Scott A. Travers, (former ANA vice president) creates a book full of pointers and tips on making money off coins, avoiding counterfeit coins, graded coins, buying, selling, and more throughout the book. Over the coarse of the book, Scott helps the reader identify safe and secure transactions versus risky and dangerous buys. He well states the benifts of grading coins, and informs the reader on making profit through the "crack-out game". Content on the history of grading is also included. The book explains ways to get the best deals when buying, and getting the most money when selling a collection. Scott places forth his experienced knowledge on the gold and silver market as well as a simple United States and Canada silver coin melt value chart. This book gets four and a half stars. The Coin Collector's Survival Manual, Revised Seventh Edition is a book to go back to refer to at every step in a coin collector's journey. I would recommend this book to other people.

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 insuch few words. This book was an amazing numismatic read.
