What has made this book so popular? There are many features that contribute to its number one ranking and I discuss all of them in my latest book review. Additionally, the book is available in several formats; everything from the functional spiral-bound to the elegant leather bound editions. What is most important is the information that is contained inside this book. So, if you're looking for Christmas gift for the coin collector in your life, you may want to consider the 2013 Red Book.

if you’re going to be buying more coins than you are selling, then I would recommend.Red Book. If you are going to be selling more coins than you are buying, then I would recommend the blue book. If you do a lot of selling and buying, then I would recommend buying both books.
