I bought the Blue Book because my family has a small coin collection left to us by two deceased relatives and I wanted to have some idea of what a dealer would offer for the coins when we get around to dividing up the collection.
I've had the "Red Book" (prices you can expect to pay) for years, the Blue edition is laid out pretty much the same, the main difference being that what a person will get from a dealer is often considerably different than what they'll charge you for a similar coin.
A little old change can quickly add up the $ so a reference like this is worth quite a lot when you don't know values. A person with more than just a few dollars, face value, in hand should probably get this book to go with their copy of the Red edition.

You too can know what dealers pay. Get this book. Now. If your into numis or stacking lose the Red book. Since owning this book I have not payed for a coin above dealer cost. I was shocked at the markup dealers put on coins. The red book is a fantasy farce of pricing for suckers. If you try to sell a coin at a coin shop they are going to offer you blue book price or less. They will turn around and sell it at red book pricing. 15-50% higher. My new rule for buying numis is this, check the blue book first. If the price is the same or lower I buy it. Simple. I then check the redbook after the fact and I'm always amazed at the huge profit I just made in the seemingly blink of an eye. If I was a dealer and not a collector/stacker I could easily mark it up and slap it on ebay for profit. Those fools pay redbook prices all day long. Get this book if you want to know the true value of you coins.

This is a good book.... but I think it might be easier to search the paperback version. The table of contents pages do have links to within the book, but the index has not even one link! It is difficult sometimes to find what you're looking for because the INDEX has no links whatsoever. If you know the name of the coin you're looking for, you can just do a search and type in the name. But if you don't know what the NAME of the issue is, you could go through a lot of searches before you find the information you're looking for. For example, type in 1804 silver dollar in the search field. It only brings up the fact that there are a lot of counterfeits. There is nothing on the 1804 silver dollar that can be "searched" for. Thus my reason for only 4 stars. The 1804 silver dollar IS in the book under silver dollars of the time period.

This is a VERY GOOD 'reference' book for US Coins. I would say a 'MUST' for every coin collector/ hobbyist. Thanks to Amazon Prime received it in 'two' days. I initially gave it 'five' stars but decided to trim it to 'four' since this book
(1) has images all black and white ... so coin texture / small details are dark grey... difficult to identify ...upto your own imagination and interpretation.
(2) valuations of coins is confusing at times ... meaning I could not find 'any' seller selling coins anywhere near these valuations (example, US Lincoln Cents or Indian Heads... check it out for yourself).
(3) has details about 'coins' only , if you collect paper currency you need to buy another book.

Concept of blue book is to show what dealers pay for coins which is somewhat accurate. It does not account for actual coin prices being sold via auctions or by private sellers like E-bay. Most coin collectors already know that large dealing houses probably only pay about 75% of true market value or maybe less so they can resell item. This book is a compliment to red book but not really needed by average collector.

My wife inherited a few coins from her father. After taking some time to inventory them, I bought the Kindle version of this book so I would have some idea of what the coins were worth. A few weeks later my wife heard that a coin appraiser would be at a local bank to appraise coins for free. We met with the gentleman and his appraisal, give or take a buck or two, was right on with those in the Blue Book.

My friend is was enjoying the Christmas present until he went deeper into this book and said please sell it if you can. Why? He said it is misleading as to the number of years this author has published. He said the author publishes several times a year so he felt the credibility of the content was in question.

found an old childhood coin collection with many a coin. this book gave the the information that i needed to determine if anything was worth anything more than face value. was surprised to learn that there were some relatively easy to find coins , back in the 1950's, that are now worth much more than face value......especially those made out of mostly silver.
