 The ACC/BHCC Publishes New Comprehensive Book:   “Modern U.S. Coin Values”

1933 Washington Quarters & 1959 Wheat Cent reported with other new finds!

        In their efforts to promote the hobby of numismatics to the general public, the members of the ACC/BHCC have been busy compiling and editing a new book entitled "Modern U.S. Coin Values".   Their new Guide Book details many varieties of coins that people may be able to search for in circulation, flea markets or in coin junk boxes.  The book cautions beginners that it is "rare to find extremely valuable coins in circulation, but the experience of searching can be both fun and rewarding".  It goes on to note that "the chances of finding coins of considerable value are far greater than winning the lottery" and "that thousands of such coins are found every year by seekers in the know".  

        With the assistance of dozens of numismatist throughout the country, the ACC/BHCC has formed a Review Committee to compile pricing, mintage and population data pertaining to most modern U.S. coin issues, from 1932 to date.  Thus far, members have gathered and confirmed some ground-breaking news pertaining to some scarcely-known varieties, such as a 1959 Wheat Cent substantiated by a Federal Marshall,  five 1933 Washington Quarters confirmed by three professional numismatist, and the verification of several 1976-D Eisenhower dollars struck in silver, just to name a few.   Although the book details mostly issues from 1932 to date, it features many varieties not found in any other current pricing guide.  It also includes up-to-date evaluations of all earlier U.S. type coins, based not only on dealer feedback, but also collector's feedback at shows, auction houses and on the Internet. "One of the best features of the book, is that it gives estimated values in an unprecedented number of grade categories, 35 in total, including all mint state grades from MS 60 to MS 70.   Sometimes nearly perfect coins can be had at the bank or even in circulation", Mr. Carter notes.

        The ACC/BHCC is currently asking all readers for help in this project. ACC/BHCC needs feedback about any and all modern varieties that collectors might be familiar with, regardless of rarity or value, along with estimated values in as many grades possible.  Pictures are very much needed also, and could be e-mailed to them at bookproject@bhcoinclub.org or sent to their street address found at www.BHcoinclub.org.  Such information should be sent for review by October 20th, 2003 for the 2004 edition and by January 1st, 2004 for the 2005 edition.  Those who submit feedback contributions that can be used by the club's Review Committee, will be listed in the book.

        The book is being given free of charge to all young numismatist under the age of 18 who send a copy of their student ID and is offered free of charge to over 35,000 schools and public Libraries.  "Children are truly the future of our hobby and we plan to spend a lot of money to support their knowledge in any way we can", said David Carter, Chairperson of the Review Committee.  The cover price of the new 2004 edition of "Modern U.S. Coin Values" is only $10 postpaid.  Adult collectors can obtain copies and help support the project by sending any offering of $10 or more for each copy in the form of cash, check or any coin book or any coin with a value of $10 or more.  The cover features beautiful pictures of coins along with an American flag.  This year's release date is November 1st, just in time for the Christmas Day season.  Membership in the ACC/BHCC is only $18 per year and just $12 for collectors under 18.  There are many member benefits including a free Library-by-mail and a free subscription to Rare Coin Magazine, their official publication.  The Beverly Hills Coin Club's address is BHCC, 9903 Santa Monica Blvd., Suite #151,  Beverly Hills, CA  90212 or they can be contacted at info@BHcoinclub.org
