NEW EDITION: GUIDE BOOK OF UNITED STATES PAPER MONEY, THIRD EDITION

Dennis Tucker of Whitman Publishing forwarded this release on the latest edition of Friedberg’s Guide Book of United States Paper Money. -Editor

Guide Book of U.S. Paper Money 3rd ed. Building on the scope of Robert Friedberg’s groundbreaking research, the Guide Book of United States Paper Money, third edition, is an engaging history and price guide of the paper currency of the United States. The full-color, 416-page book is available for $24.95 online (including at WhitmanBooks.com) and from booksellers nationwide.

Every federal note—from the ultra rare Demand Notes of 1861 to the lunch money in our wallets today—is described in detail. Fascinating narrative captures the romance and history of American paper money, and also explores recent developments in the hobby and market. The book combines the hobby-standard Friedberg numbering system with retail values in multiple grades and hundreds of high-resolution photos.

“The first and second editions have been very popular among collectors and dealers,” said Whitman publisher Dennis Tucker. “Since the first edition was published in 2005, we’ve seen interest in paper money increasing within the hobby community, and also among new collectors. The third edition of the Guide Book of United States Paper Money is designed for both newcomers and longtime hobbyists.”

Authors Arthur and Ira Friedberg are well known in the numismatic world. They have been professional numismatists for more than 30 years. Both joined their father’s family firm, The Coin & Currency Institute, after college. Since then they have established themselves as award-winning authors, coin dealers, researchers, and numismatic consultants to numerous governments and organizations.
