I can only agree with the previous reviewer. The book fills a gap in the market as far as British coins are concerned. Many of the books on the subject are extremely short of both information and also adequate identification tools, be they drawings or photographs.
This book tells you virtually everything you need to know on the subject. It also gives you the values for coins in their different states of preservation, something the new collector does not always grasp. As with most things, both old and new, condition is everything. There are literally thousands of relatively old coins that can be purchased quite cheaply and that is simply because of their poor condition.
The book is a must for every collector and could save you quite a bit of money in the long run through making the wrong purchases.
