Red Book has been a staple of collectors for many many years. It's a great resource and while I don't get a new one every year, I do keep a stack of them on my bookshelf and rarely go more than 3 years between copies.

I currently use Kraus (A guide to US,Canadian and Mexican Coins )19th edition.

While I mostly use Charlton for my Canadian coins, I do use this cat for my USA material.

I have heard most collectors of US coins use the red book, how much better is it and should I think about getting one?.

You should always have more than one reference for prices. Prices are very much in flux these days. As soon as one reference is published, it is already out of date.

 

I like to take at least three of the following sources into consideration:

 

1. Red Book;

2. Gray sheet;

3. recent Heritage auction prices;

4. eBay recent prices realized;

5. any other auction prices you can get a hold of.

 

(Note that Krause-Mishler is NOT part of the mix...)

My father-in-law liked this joke:

"You get tired doing nothing because you can't stop to rest!" :bwink:
