I came across this today. I used to cut my teeth on tiny Dell coin books like this. Written by none other than Norman Stack. All I know is that my 1921 quarter is more lots more than $10 today. :)

    Yep... I add the old coin/price guides to my library whenever I come across them - at a reasonable price that is. Cheers, RickO

    I was born in 57, and the first Official Red Book I ever seen come into the house was this one!
    That's my Dad's name and the house at that address has sense been torn down.
    How this book has remained in the family and not been discarded or lost in all the deaths, divorces, & moves is beyond me?
    I only acquired it maybe a year ago from my next older brother.
    I also have a 1956 edition to go along with my 55 DDO, but I bought it right after I purchased the 55 DDO. :D It doesn't have a single mention of the 55DDO, it has the price list for the 55's but no reference to the 55DDO Maybe I should look for a 1957 version.

    Hey Mark. That’s awesome. I have a few things that I look at and go “how the heck did that survive, I was born in 52, and thank my lucky stars for the direct contact with ancestry. Very nice!
    eBay has some great deals on vintage red books and Max Mehl pre- RB “Star rare coin encyclopedia “. Fun read and the advertisements and prices are worthwhile entertainment 👍🏼
