TOTAL AVERAGE SCORE..... 6
Is this a must have book? No
Overall Comments: This book would have been a great little starter book for the
beginner if the prices under the pictures were left out. Any beginner that buys and sells by the prices in the book will be Bankrupt!
Two redeeming qualities of the book are the pictures and info of Rare how to find Prison Rings on page 205 which does not make it into most jewelry books, and the book is a size that you could have carried it with you when hunting for jewelry.
I really don’t know why I have this book!
