    Early US Dimes by Davis, etal. Currently out of print identifies them by die marriage.

    A newer quick finder by Winston Zach and others is currently in the marketplace.

    Q: When does a collector become a numismatist?



    A: The year they spend more on their library than their coin collection.



    A numismatist is judged more on the content of their library than the content of their cabinet.

    The quick finder is available through David Kahn Rare Coins

    The original manual is out of print. You should check with David Fanning of Kolbe/Fanning.

    I also HIGHLY recommend joining The John Reich Collectors Society for more fun and information. JRCS.org.

    Need more help? Let me know.

    Yes thanks will be buying a copy if possible. Just have to call them to find out if shipping to Canada is OK and if so how much it costs. Since I do not live in the USA.
