I'm fairly new to currency collecting, so I needed some solid reference books to increase my knowledge base. This book is a wonderful addition to my currency library. Using the Friedberg catalog numbering system, you can rapidly look for the details on that particular piece of currency. There are many, many beautiful full-color photos for each major type. However, you really need to know the Friedberg number in advance due to the many varieties within each type of currency.The catalog values placed for each note are, to me, just a reference to the scarcity of the note and not the current market value. I've also read that there are some errors in the book regarding values, etc. However, in order to gauge real-world values, eBay and other resources give you much better price discovery.That being said, I would not hesitate to recommend the purchase of this hefty, gorgeous book. I've spent many hours just paging through and discovering U.S. currency that I've never seen before. It's well-worth the price just to explore the history of U.S. currency.
This book is a must-have for anybody who collects or is interested in U.S. currency. It is well laid out and concise.
This is the US Paper Money value bible. Friedberg is the go-to source for any and all valuations. If you plan on collecting paper money, or you already have or have inherited a paper money collection, this is an absolute MUST for your library.The book is Easy to use and easy to reference. The full color photos are excellent as well and aid you in identifying what you actually have.
Along with the many other books that are out on currency, I did enjoy this book from the start as the listings are much more consistent, the values are true to form and because it contains both large and small notes, you do not have to do double spending on a reference book for your inventory!!I will continue to use and monitor this book...
This is the real thing and an excellent reference book for beginners and pros alike. It is easy to use and the pictures are clear and illustrative.
This book covers subjects that I previously have not seen in one volume, including colonial and continental currency, Confederate currency (not the individual state's notes, nor varieties), error notes, and postage envelopes. This book also covers large size notes, small size notes (however, without the serial number ranges covered by the small currency book), fractional currency, and encased postage stamps. This books lightens my load when going to shows.
I was advised by a friend to buy this book. When I received it and went through it I was very impressed with it. The book is packed with information and I would recommend it to anyone.
It's a very extensive and in-depth look at American currency. Rare or common. Worthless or rare and what it's worth.
