    Learning from an experienced collector or a dealer is another way of gaining some education in numismatics.You don't necessarily have to go back to school to do this.

    I think a good education consists of all three.

    Along with your own library of numismatic publications. Its always a good idea to invest in some good books on the subject.

    A Guide book of United States Coins (Red Book)

    Cherrypickers Guide to Rare Die Varieties of U.S. Coins

    ANA Grading Standards for U.S. Coins or

    Photograde, whichever you prefer, or both

    Krause Standard Catalog of World Coins or

    Any book that focuses on your area of interest. These are just a few of the books that I personally own that I believe are essential.

    He was quite an asset to this forum, IMHO.

    I last saw him posting on a few weeks back.He sent me a PM telling me that he was on for a while & left once he found that it wasn't to his liking.

    ND has had health problems and as far as I know hasn't been on any forum for some time. I think he still does the shows and such but from what I hear has backed off quite a bit.

    If you are collecting Canadian coins,you can always read 'Coins of Canada' by J.A. Haxby & R.C. Willey or the Charlton catalogues as well as Krause.

    also buy all of the book you can and place them through out the house, one of the best places for me to study is on the throne. actually you are there, you are going to be there, and anything has to be better than the task at hand. LOL

    Taylor, you do realize that this thread was started more than 7 years ago and the last post by Spock was almost 3 years ago, don't you?

    If you're going to open an old thread, you will have to yell very loud!
