Gold and grading share the spotlight in The Coin Collector’s Survival Manual, Seventh Edition, the latest edition of the perennial book by Scott A. Travers.
Published by Random House, the 400-page guide contains two new chapters: one on buying and selling gold coins and other precious metal items, the other on recent innovations in coin grading.
Hundreds of never-before-published digitized coin images give readers a clear look at subtle grading nuances and ways to detect altered coins. The book also provides consumer-friendly advice on how to buy and sell U.S. and world coins and offers consumer protection information.
Suggested retail price is $22.99. It is available now in bookstores and online at www.randomhouse.com.
