A guide Book of United States Coins is a great resource I use as a guide. It gives general descriptions on grades of coins and values of coins as well from pre colonial all the way to current.

Westcoin,

I collect Silver Eagles and Peace Dollars, so The Official Red Books' A Guide Book of Peace Dollars by Roger W. Burdette and Barry Lovvorn and American Silver Eagles: A Guide to the U.S. Bullion Coin Program by John M. Mercanti and Michael Standish have been very interesting and helpful.


I also made an amazing find at my local discount book store and picked up  The American Numismatic Association's Centennial History Volumes I and II by Q. David Bowers and the ANA's Anthology edited by Carl W.A. Carlson and Michael Hodder there. Just a wealth of information in those books.

I think it would be useful to segregate any list of numismatic references into "introductory" and "specialist" sections. The list is likely to be dauntingly long otherwise. Those collectors searching for books on a subject are almost always going to be looking for introductory works.

Scott Travers' The Coin Collector's Survival Guide: this was my crash course in how to collect coins and how to understand the ins and outs of coin collecting. It warns about common pit-falls and explains everything from grading and the grading services to issues like coin doctoring. Travers explains why you should not bargain-hunt or fall for sight-unseen ads that seem to promise bargains. It's a must-read for anyone planning on spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on coins, so I'll recommend it for anyone who collects anything expensive, be it Carson City Morgans, Capped Bust Halves, or gold Anything.


As for Q. David Bowers, you'd be hard pressed to find any numismatic reference he wasn't somehow involved. He wrote or contributed to pretty much everything. I think there may be a pamphlet on Jefferson nickels that he didn't write, but otherwise, he wrote everything.
