Disappointed, Was not up to date. Did not have complete listings of series. Plates as far back as 1993 are listed as recent issue. secondary prices don't seem to be updated.
I was not happy with all the items marked NA(not available), RI(recent issue), etc. The book, in my opinion, is not up to date & has very little value to someone who wants to price out their collection
This book is a great reference for plate collectors. Although an update is probably due, the book still offers information that holds in today's market. After pricing and selling some 200 collector plates, I have found the prices in the book to be "on the mark". Don't hesitate to add this to your resource collection.
well .... these plates were sold to an unsuspecting public as an "investment" ... using (what most people might think) a reputable company name to push these worthless products (ie franklin mint, bradbury exchange, unheard of artists with "limited" productions, etc...)i would guess ... that if you are looking at a book of this type .... you too are a victim of this worthless crap...my question ... would we have some kind of legal recourse in the form of a class action suit ??? this junk was pedaled in what i would think to classified as "bad faith" .i would like to be able to simply recover the issue price (plus the shipping) ...in my review of the book ... it does give issue price (which is what i was looking for --- since my mom bought these over 20+ years ago) ... and a small amount of information pertaining to what the price might be worth in several generations ... (a time i would never see)if any reader would be interested ... or experienced in trying to launch a class action ... i would be a willing participant.
this was not an up to date guide, which was a dissapointed. the plate collectors dont have many resources and to have a product out there with information that is several years back and it is not disclosed is a rip off. Buyer beware make sure you know what you are getting and if it does not say new or updated within the same year, dont buy it.
This book is one of the few out there that is of any value in regards to Collector Plates. Although it doesn't always give you an indication on todays current price, it does tell you what the issue prices was, and gives a guideline as to whether the plate is now worth more than what was paid for it, the same, or less. I deal in Collector Plates personally and as a business, and I do use the book as a reference tool pretty often. I do recommend this book as a general guideline to those interested in collecting or selling plates.
I was very disappointed when I try to used it was very complicated to work with it ,it is not very clear how you can come with the plates prices,names etc...it was a waste I don't recommend it for nothing.
I was extremly disappointed because this book is over 10 years old so it is too outdated to find current market values of collector plates. It did contain other useful information about collecting plates so if you just want to learn about collecting plates this is a good book. However if you want to know the market values for plates you have this book is useless.
