BOOK REVIEW BY JOHN AND NANCY WILSON: WHITMAN'S 100 GREATEST AMERICAN STAMPS


John and Nancy Wilson of Ocala, FL write: "The "100 Greatest
American Stamps," written by Donald Sundman and Janet Klug,
is a richly illustrated 144 page hard cover book showing
what many people believe are the 100 most interesting American
stamps.  It covers a good cross-section of stamps from the
1918 inverted Jenny and the unique 1868 1 cent Z grill to the
1993 29 cent Elvis Presley stamp. Market values are given for
the stamps from 1920 to present in both new and used condition.
This chart allows the reader to review the historic change in
the stamp's value.  Following the top 100 are four pages of
honorable mention stamps which include a 1st Issue Postage
Currency Note.

"Additional historical information about the stamps and other
artifacts associated with the stamps is given.  Coins and
paper money associated with the stamps are also shown and
described.  The coffee-table-size book appeals to both the
dedicated stamps collector as well as people just casually
familiar with stamps.  The authors give tips on grading and
educated buying in the current marketplace. The book retails
for $29.95 online at  www.whitmanbook.com  and bookstores
and hobby shops nationwide."
