The Insider’s Guide to U.S. Coin Values 2010
by Scott A. Travers

The chance of turning up “a fortune in pocket change” — the equivalent of digging up buried treasure — has always been one of the great allures of coin collecting. A generation ago, that chance diminished when copper-nickel “clad” coins drove silver U.S. coins from circulation.

Now the brand new edition of a book written by New York City coin dealer, author, and consumer advocate Scott A. Travers demonstrates conclusively that the age of discovery is far from over — that worthwhile, often highly valuable coins can still be found in pockets, purses and cash drawers. All it takes to find them is knowledge and perseverance, and The Insider’s Guide to U.S. Coin Values 2007 provides all the knowledge a treasure-hunter will need to hit the jackpot.

Never before has there been a clearer, more helpful guidebook on how to identify, acquire and profit from valuable coins. This is a book for everyone who finds rare coins enticing.

Circulation finds are just one aspect of the book. It also provides detailed listings of fair market values for all regular-issue and commemorative coins struck by the U.S. Mint in its first 200 years of operation. And the author displays a welcome willingness to offer market values for coins of extreme rarity. Other price guides steer clear of these coins, seemingly out of a reluctance to be too specific in measuring hard-to-gauge, limited market activity. Being a major buyer and seller of classic high-grade rarities, Scott Travers has the advantage of knowing this market intimately.

The Insider’s Guide to U.S. Coin Values 2007 is a mass-market paperback published by Dell and priced at $7.50. It is available at bookstores everywhere.

For those who buy or sell wisely, there’s an ultimate payoff, for collecting rare coins, like finding buried treasure, has the potential to be a richly rewarding pursuit.

  • UNDERSTANDING COIN GRADES AND WHAT THEY MEAN IN DOLLARS AND CENTS FOR COLLECTORS
  • THE ADVANTAGES OF A “CERTIFIED COIN” FROM A GRADING SERVICE
