But wait, there's more - here’s another release from Krause Publications. -Editor The new edition of the ultimate U.S. coin book, U.S. Coin Digest, is now available from Krause Publications.
Now in its eighth edition, this two-in-one full color coin guide is packed with comprehensive information that serves the needs of seasoned collectors, as well as the person who inherited a collection or has a few coins they are wondering about. Listings include circulating and non-circulating coins from early colonial times to modern issues, including the new coins of the presidential dollar series.
Each coin is introduced with details about the designer, its diameter, weight and composition and key notes about strikes or varieties, and it is followed by line listings with mintage and price for each issue by year. With current pricing in up to 11 grades of condition, the accuracy of this U.S. coin guide is unmatched.
The 288-page book also contains 1,600 color photos, and is produced in hard cover with concealed wired binding. This allows for users to lay the book flat for hands-free research while inspecting coins. The obverse and reverse color photos also give readers an added edge in properly identifying coins.
A bonus CD included with the book contains special features on Liberty Head nickels, Kennedy halves, Morgan dollars, commemoratives, U.S. minting varieties and errors, and a complete issue of Coins magazine. A CD version containing all of the contents of the book and the bonus features is also sold separately. The CD allows readers to search listings and articles using the key word option or the index, and provides the ability to enlarge pages by 400% for close-up inspection of coins and easier reading.
U.S. Coin Digest 2010 is edited by David C. Harper, the editor of Numismatic News, who has more than 44 years of experience in the hobby, and Harry Miller, a prominent coin dealer and founder of Miller's Mint.
