If anyone has a recent (2012 or later) US coin catalogue, would you help me look up about a dozen items please? I can email the list to you. I have a Krause 2011 World Coin catalogue but I would prefer a specialized US reference.

Thanks.

Peter,

I have a 2011 Red Book, but most folks rely on the Greysheet for pricing info. Red Book is retail pricing like Scott Specialized.

This link discusses various sources:

re: Need US Coin catalogue values please

Peter,

I'm into US stamps more than US coins, but I have a fairly solid collection.

For stamp pricing, I have Scott Specialized from 1928, 1945, 1959, 1972, 1990, 2008 and 2011. I enjoy seeing the trends of some of the more interesting items.

With coins I just have the Red Book from 2000 and the one from 2011. The extra kicker on coins is the precious metal content. The pricing in the 2000 Red Book is based on $300 gold and $5 silver. 2011 pricing is based on $1200 gold and $20 silver. Gold was up to $1900 and Silver was just shy of $50 when the 2012 prices would have been published, so the prices in the 2011 Red Book would be a better guide for precious metal coins today than any other annual publication. Non precious metal prices are more driven by supply and demand than commodity prices.

Here are a few examples:

Lincoln Wheat Penny 1909S:

VG-8 $40.00 in 2000; $110.00 in 2011
EF-40 $90.00 in 2000; $225.00 in 2011

Lincoln Wheat Penny 1909S VDB:

VG-8 $400.00 in 2000; $900.00 in 2011
EF-40 $525.00 in 2000; $1400.00 in 2011

Jefferson Nickel 1938S:

EF-40 $3.50 in 2000; $3.00 in 2011 ----- Yes, you read that correctly!!!

SBA Dollar 1979P Wide Rim:

MS-63 $9.00 in 2000; $60 in 2011

If you are looking for a ballpark number, I will be happy to look it up for you, but if you need current market pricing you will want to purchase the current Greysheet for $4.

Lars

re: Need US Coin catalogue values please

Thanks Lars. I have nothing as valuable as those; these are simple US and American Mint commemorative coin sets that my uncle has asked me to sell for him. I was just wondering what a starting price should be at auction but now I've found several on eBay.

Cheers,
Peter
