"The Standard Guide to Grading British Coins" is the 'Where's wear' of British numismatics! The first book of its kind - a detailed photographic and descriptive record of all British modern milled pre-decimal coins (1797 to 1970) in all their collectable grades. The grade of a coin dictates it's value.The age, type or specific date are all of less importance than the condition. But what is Fine, VF, EF or Uncirculated? If you are new to coin collecting or specialise in different coin types, how can you say without doubt that a coin is a certain grade? Until now you could only guess. Now, at least you can make a very educated guess based on the images shown in "The Standard Guide to Grading British Coins". The photos of every obverse and reverse type are illustrated in full colour at 2x or greater magnification and the text describes where to look for the wear first. An invaluable guide to anyone who collects coins, especially at the moment, with huge amounts of overgraded coins being offered on the internet.
