UNITED STATES COINAGE A Study by Type by Ron Guth and Jeff Garrett.
If you open this book, you will buy it. Let?s start with the photos. These are not just photos, these are works of art. Every page is headed by an obverse and reverse photo of the type coin discussed. In many cases the photos depict the finest example known. In every case, 140 different coins, the photos themselves are the finest I have ever seen.
This is a big book with glossy pages (168 of them). It gives current and historical values for each coin. It gives a brief history of every type coin. It is a great reference work to add to your library, and also just a good book to read.
I got mine at amazon.com for less than $30.00 including shipping.
