    I believe I got lucky last night being able to score this book under $50. It's been awhile I've been trying to find one reasonably priced. Some of these old references out of print are like hens teeth!

    If you see one in your travels < $ 50. Buy it you'll easily double your out lay flipping it.

    Some of these text have so much information lost over the years.
    I always at a show I'm on the look out for older references for sale.
    This find is one again I've been on the hunt for...

    You’re not kidding about some of these reference books being like hens teeth. I’ve been keeping an eye out for the Federal Half Dimes book for a year now and only a couple have been listed (one was very overpriced and I missed out on the other one). Congrats on snagging this one!

    Years ago, I paid about $8 for the same book. Not many wanted it or the matching Dime book. Today, $50 is a good deal. I tell my son to be careful when he sells my library. Cool old books bring strong prices.
