The 2014 Official Blue Book of United State Coins
"Are my coins worth a fortune?"
Since 1942, the Handbook of United States Coins (called the "Blue Book" for its distinctive cover color) has been the annual reference used by U.S. coin dealers to make buying offers. Likewise, coin collectors use it to find out what dealers will pay for their coins. Its price listings offer a real-world look at the coin market, gathered from dozens of well-known and active dealers around the country. While the "Red Book" gives you a guide as to how much you can expect to pay a coin dealer for the coins you need (retail prices), the "Blue Book" gives you a idea how much you could expect a dealer to pay you for your coins (wholesale prices). Use the Blue Book to see if the offer you are given is fair.
The book covers Colonial and early American coins, federal coins, commemoratives, Proof sets, die varieties, private and territorial gold, tokens, Presidential dollars, and much more!
