Frank J.Colletti

A Guide Book of the Official Red Book of United States Coin

The Guide Book of United States Coins is the most popular coin reference in the hobby. For years this cornerstone of the hobby, popularly known as the “Red Book,” has been a collectible itself. Now, longtime hobbyist Frank J. Colletti has written the definitive guide to the Red Book. He offers a history of earlier coin price guides, explores the foundation laid by hobby legend R.S. Yeoman, and then studies each Red Book issued since 1946. Regular editions, special editions, limited editions, authorized overprints, and amazing errors are all examined in detail, with market values given for various grades. Colletti tells what to look for as you buy, and how to build and care for your collection. He also discusses Red Book–related medals and other collectibles. If you like rare coins or collectible books—if you love learning about the hobby’s famous dealers, collectors, and researchers—if you want to add to your own collection of Red Books, or find out how much each book is worth—you’ll be delighted with the Guide Book of THE OFFICIAL RED BOOK OF UNITED STATES COINS.
