NEW BOOK: 'A CATALOG OF MODERN WORLD COINS, 1850–1964', 14TH EDITION

[Dennis Tucker of Whitman Publishing forwarded the following

Whitman Publishing announces the release of the 14th edition
of A Catalog of Modern World Coins, 1850–1964, known to
generations of collectors as the “Brown Book.” The new
edition is available online, and from hobby shops and
bookstores nationwide.

A Catalog of Modern World Coins builds on the classic text
by R.S. Yeoman, father of the best-selling Guide Book of
United States Coins (known to collectors as the “Red Book”).

The 14th edition has been updated with new photographs and
retail valuations by coin type, in up to four grade levels.
Editor Arthur Friedberg and his team of experts from around
the globe provide an accurate snapshot of the exciting
world-coin market.

“This handy volume is perfect for today’s world-coin
collector,” says Whitman publisher Dennis Tucker, describing
the book as “small enough to easily hold, carry, and read,
but packed with photos, data, and valuations.”

Who Should Read A Catalog of Modern World Coins?

•       Collectors looking for an accurate book on world coins
•       New hobbyists attracted to coins by the recent hot market
•       Dealers looking for a convenient type-coin guide
•       “OFEC” (One From Every Country) coin collectors
•       U.S. coin collectors looking to branch out into an
          interesting new field
•       Token and medal collectors intrigued by the connection
          to world coinage
•       Casual collectors and travelers with unidentified
          coins from other countries

What Will Readers Find Inside?

•       A complete listing of coins of all countries from 1850
     		to the mid-1960s
•       Each type and date of coin grouped in chronological order
•       High-quality images in actual size, for quick identification

    		 all world coin types

[The 544 page 6" x 9" softcover book retails for $19.95.
I  haven't seen a copy yet, but this sounds like a great
successor to the "Brown book" I knew as a young collector
of world coins.  -Editor]
