A good display of examples of different grades of most US coin types. This should really be used in conjunction with the newer ANA Grading Guide. The user is also advised that many coins suffered from poor strikes in specific periods, such that even a clearly uncirculated coin might appear to have only EF detail - and sometimes less.

The single most useful book you can own to learn the essentials of coin grading.

Designed for beginners and advanced graders alike.

Acclaimed by dealers for its accuracy.

Contains more than 1,000 coin photographs, many enlarged to show details. (back cover)
