I just finished reading a book about the 1794 Large Cents. It's called "Provenance Gallery of the Year 1794 United States Large Cents". The book was great. I really enjoyed reading about the early days of the US Mint and all that went into the production of these terrific coins. Here's a website with a bunch of info about the book.

OK, I just bought a 1968 Red Book, (my birth year), brand new for $1.00 with $1.42 s/h from a lady at ioffer.com :ninja:

 

My book arrived in perfect shape, except for a little aging. I'm so happy. Not bad for a buck. ;)

The last book I bought was the Syllogue Nummorum Sasanidarum Volume 3.

Two of the 6 are now out meaning I have to spend at least another $600 to get the set.

 

Maybe I should sell my library and buy coins

You know, I mostly have. I've turned over the coins in my collection numerous times. The books on the other hand, I've pretty much kept. I've never had an urge to sell books, but I've sold a lot of coins. I bet that says something

I ordered the 2006 Redbook in hardback.  Should arrive in the next week or so.

This was wishful thinking. It got lost in the post, so Amazon are sending a replacement one which will take 10-11 days to order.

I just ordered:

 

Standard Catalog of World Coins

Standard Catalog of World Paper Money

Standard Catalog of US Paper Money

 

They are all the 2004 editions, but I got them from half.com for a total of $16.97 plus shipping. I just couldn't resist the bargain. The new editions cost $87.11 total plus shipping on amazon. Ouch!
