I have been a religious coin collector since I was a young boy, but only recently have I opened my eyes to the realm of paper money. I wasn't sure where to start, what literature to purchase, or what resources were available. So far this book has been great! Arthur and Ira Friedberg teach a lot there is to know about the paper money business! It also appears to be pretty respected once it comes to pricing, as I haven't seen much deviance at local numismatic shops. Definitely recommended!
Have you even found an old silver certificate or a $2 bill with a red seal? Have you ever inherited a paper money collection from a loved one and had no idea what you had or whether it was valuable? A Guide Book of United States Paper Money is the book you need for finding these answers.I used to work in a bank many years ago and would at times find an old dollar bill or a $2 bill and was always fascinated by the bright colors and artistry in our paper money from the past. While I knew the difference between a silver certificate and a U.S. Note, I had no idea if what I saved held any value. Even more importantly, if you like to dabble in collecting "dollar bills", how would you know if the price attached to a note you were interested in was a fair price?A Guide Book of United States Paper Money is a fantastic reference guide. It has all currency, from fractional notes to $100,000 notes listed and gorgeous color photos of all of these notes. Even if you don't collect currency, this book is wonderful in displaying all of the various notes in full color. I went online to .com and ordered this book and was blown away by all the fascinating notes and designs. The photos are spectacular and I find it wonderful going back in time studying the beautiful, artistic notes the United States has produced over many decades! I was able to go home and find prices in all the currency I had accumulated over the last 30 years.As a collector, I find this book to be an invaluable guide to educate me on United States currency. Well worth the small price many times over!John Lannan
As only a reasonably new collector of American money this book I find is excellent for my cause. It has excellent photos/copies of American notes in many denominations with great text and description of each as well. I didn't realize there was so many notes on offer, but then the U.S.A. being going a bit longer than AUS. Over all this book shall be more than handy in my quest to gather some nice American notes. Am very pleased with the purchase of this book, thank you. dks Austrailia.
I have only had this book for a couple of days, but I have found a few errors already. This in turn leads me to doubt the valuations as well.p46. F-1617 and F-1617* 1935-G $1 Silver Certificate notes contain the "In God We Trust Motto." They are incorrectly labeled in this book as "No Motto" notes.p198. Lower half describes the different versions of the 1914 $20 Federal Reserve Notes. In the "Blue Seals" section, the book describes the A suffix of the Friedberg numbers as having a "large district letter and numeral on top left and bottom right." This is incorrect. The A versions have the district letter and number on the top right and bottom left.There are a few other errors, but I can't pinpoint where they are at the moment. In any case, this book was a questionable purchase.
Good starter book on currency. As with most guides, the valuations are too high so they should be used as a relative price guide only, not an absolute on note values. This version of the Red Book is easier to use for beginners because it is primarily organized by note value ($1; $2; $5, etc.) rather than by note type so it is easier to find notes quickly in it.
Anyone who considers buying old US currency really needs thisor something similar. Will satisfy most hobbyists and has allthe varieties of paper money going back to the eighteen hundredsthat the government has produced. Clear images of each type ofbill and makes it easy to determine relative grades.
Everything is organized in easy to find order and with color pictures it is so easy to find what you are looking for. Great book for the money.
This book which details the different types of U.S. Currency is excellent for one who may decide to collect currency as a hobby. For the history buff you'll be amazed to the different types of paper money used here in the U.S. since our beginnings as a country. The book also give details and history of each type of paper that has been use. Excellent reference book!
