 WORLD COIN BOOKS

There is an old saying in the coin  hobby, "buy the book before you buy the coin".  Related to it is another old saying "Knowledge is power".  Knowing what to look for in a coin can save you hundreds of dollars - and perhaps even make you some money.  There are a lot of collectors out there that "cherry pick" dealers because they read the book and  know what to look for.
