I continue my discussion of A Guide Book of United States Coins, the popular annual reference now in its 68th edition. The current volume bears a cover date of 2015, but was published last year in 2014. As you read these words the current edition is in press and is set to be launched in the spring. More than any other source, the Guide Book is the key for basic information on price, rarity and history of American coinage from colonial times to the present.
