In our collection we have a majority of older pieces so the edition we purchased was great for our need. We found that it was a helpful tool when a piece had no visible number but you were able to cross reference by saying to see a picture of the piece. The book is almost complete I believe we have one or two pieces not listed or some of the earlier production mark on a few figurines but when you are verifying over 500 pieces does it really matter. Good reference book to update a very old file.
I really enjoy this book. It helps me keep up with the precious moments I buy, what I spent on them and how much they are worth.
Terrific book with each figurine in color. One reason for not giving it 5 stars is the way the book is set up. The figurines are placed in figurine mold number order. It would have been better to place them in categories such as regular Precious Moments, Baby, Wedding/ Anniversary, Nativity and Mini Nativity, Club pieces and Ornaments. It would enable finding your pieces much faster than using the mold number.
John & Malinda Bomm's Official Precious Moments Collector's Guide To Figurines, 2nd Edition provides a handy tote-size manual which will easily fit into a purse or coat pocket, offering collectors take-along accessibility to the Precious Moments treasures they may locate in flea markets or garage sales. Each figurine receives a clear color photo, issue price, and various price ranges based on condition. The authors have almost 900 pieces in their own collection and theirs is a guide enthusiasts won't want to miss.
It was great to finally come across a new Precious Moments price guide. The layout was very easy to follow and the indexes a huge help. There were some different price variations from the last Greenbook edition (1999), which this book showed a lower value than 1999. I did not give 5 stars because there were markings on my collection of older pieces that were not listed in the book. All in all, every Precious Moments collector should have a copy of this edition!
Having almost worn out the first Official Precious Moments collector's guide to figurines, I eagerly awaited the second. Think it has even more color illustrations and really helps find the value of a Precious Moments figurine or object. Got the guides for my two daughter in loves so they could track their collections as well. They loved it! Keep up the great research for the third edition please.
