Buy the Book – Again and Again
November 01, 2013
If I ever want to prove how far numismatics has advanced in the last half century, one way to do would be to set two Red Books side by the side.
The first would be the 1965 edition that I first read cover to cover as a kid.
For the second volume, I would use its descendant, the fifth edition of The Official Red Book A Guide Book of United States Coins, Professional Edition, which arrived on my desk this week.
The first thing that would be noticed is the Professional Edition is 8.5 by 11 inches and spiral bound as compared to the 5.25 by 7.75 inches of the old hard bound edition.
