If you are a modern currency collector or thinking about starting, this is a valuable and required reference book. It covers modern federal reserve notes printed from 1963 to 2009. A detailed explanation of the notes is included in the beginning, with crisp illustrations of the notes. Every note in the date range has an easy to use table with the block designation, the Friedberg catalog #, the low to high serial number, when it was printed and by whom and a value.I chose the spiral-bound edition because it's much easier to lay it flat when doing reference work with an actual note or when looking at a web site such as eBay. Someone suggested this on a currency forum and I'm glad I saw it. This is a must-have book for any currency collector, seasoned or novice.
Collector's Guide to Modern Federal Reserve Notes Series 1963-2009 offers a spiral-bound format which may not lend readily to library shelving and easy location, but is perfect for collectors seeking lay-flat binding and an expertise that can only come from a numismatic researcher and longtime paper-money dealer. This definitive guide uses his experience plus those of leading hobbyists to provide a checklist for collectors, discussing the history of Federal Reserve notes, tips on how to collect and organize them, and how to understand markings. Color photos of the notes on nearly every page assure this is a winning reference for any avid money collector.
If you have any interest in modern US currency, you need this book. You also need Standard Catalog of Small Size United States Paper Money by Schwartz and Lindquist, but this reference goes further. Detailed printing, block, and scarcity information appears nowhere else.I more than made back the cost of the book by finding an engraving error in my collection.I wish it was available as a Kindle or PDF so I could load it on my iPad for easier use at coin shows.
I'm just starting to collect coins and U.S. currency. This is a great guide to educate you and help determine the values of currency.
