What an undertaking this book was -- 48 pages of gorgeous color, spectacular black-and-white images throughout, the grading standards of the Professional Coin Grading Service published in a book for the first time -- this is truly the book no serious coin collector can do without! I worked with the top names in coin grading on this one, and I basically had to just sit back and marvel at their expertise. This was a challenge to produce, but an incredible achievement.
