The Red Book for US coins is the book for listing values by grade and variety. This is one of the best sources short of a periadical (ie coin world) to keep abreast of coin prices. This is the Silver Anniversary Edition Read full review
ISBN 0307090515 - Tough book to review, so maybe that's why no one has bothered until now. There's no insightful prose, no character development... kind of dry reading. Still, if coins are your thing, this is a handy book.
The negative, of course, is that it's 30 years old and newer books will offer more up-to-date info. The prices, for example, will be different. On the other hand, the basic information hasn't changed, which makes this more likely to be useful to the beginning coin collector who isn't ready to make a large investment in a pricier book.
