    Some people are beginning to wonder if you’re the owner.

    Yes Rick, he did list this on the forum as i was going to give him a reply to go study
    all the books himself like we all had to do.... Why should we do his dirty work and
    make things easy for him when we had to do all the work in years gone by...I know
    back in the late 1960's when i began this hobby that when i asked a dealer the same
    question but coins and stamps in general, the reply i got back was buy the reference
    books and study them..... Like i said before it is possibly because the coins were not
    issued for circulation but only for mint sets.... I say to silencer to either buy the pic
    world coin book or the USA Red Coin Book...Just go into any dealer and they will be
    happy to sell you a book issues from a previous year at a discounted price...Most
    people think that once the year is over , that the reference books are obsolete....
    That is so untrue as it is now 2017 and the issue i use is as follows
    1901 - 2000 World Coin book ( 37th Edition ) & a Red Book from the 90'

      Hello,
      Didn't you ask this on the forum? Somebody did and some members listed quite a few. I do not collect many in that date range. One would be the 1995W ASE. Then there are the close and far AM cents. Check the CPG for all the collectibles.
      Cheers, Rick

      Hello,
      CPG is the CherryPickers Guide... a two volume book of errors on coins. A great resource.
      Cheers, Rick
