**In Bed With A Good Book**

Tokens | Kepi

I was so pleased to receive this book in the mail as I am still recovering from a broken foot and a not very pleasant surgery. My husband bought me a Civil War Token and thought while I convalesce at home I'd enjoy this book to go with it! He was right!  Wow...This book is packed with information. It is The Official Red Book..."A guide Book Of Civil War Tokens"  2nd edition. By Q. David Bowers.  Some of the topics include history, rarities and values.  And a "how to" guide to collect these wonderful pieces with over 2,000 color photo's.  It also has chapters on Civil War Store Cards, Encased Stamps and Civil War Sutler Tokens.  This is a new area of collecting for me, although I have always been interested in coinage, currency and now tokens of our Civil War era.  My token is even pictured on the cover! This book is a must for anyone who shares an interest in this subject. You won't be disappointed!  After all it was written by the best!  :  )    Thank you for reading my blog. I look forward to your comments.



Level 6

It is a great book. I am always referring to it. The Mega Redbook and the Civil War Token book is right next to my computer. I have about 40 Civil War Tokens, wish I had more. It is my main area of collecting other than coins.


Level 6

That is a great series. The book is by one of the greatest numismatic authors alive. If you take it to a show he is at, he will be happy to sign it. A very friendly man! Good luck with your collecting!!

Level 7

It's a great book. Like I told you own one you will not be disappointed. Make sure you read the part on counterfeits. EBay is loaded with them. When I did the series on them this is the book I used. I'm sure you will enjoy it. Great pick up. Thanks for the blog. Mike


Level 6

That's a great book, packed with info and photos. But you know anything from Bowers will be great!


Level 5

I don't know how anybody could not like these. I scored big points by finding one with my wife's maiden name on it. She normally wants nothing to do with my coins but that got her attention.
