I buy several every year. I keep one hard cover for my collection and two ringed ones for around the house. Then I purchase whatever is the cheapest for Christmas Presents. Again, usually the ringed, soft cover version.
There are some really great reasons for you to buy the 2009 edition. With it you can see that Whitman
still has no idea of what coin prices are. I'ts fun to look through this book for all the errors, oversights, mistakes and report it to Whitman
. Proves nothing but fun. Then of course the more books you buy the more they will publish making it easier for someone to find at a flea market for $1 in the near future. One of the primary reasons to buy the Red Book
is with each purchase you can look into a mirror and say I just helped some people at Whitman
keep their jobs. See the more they sell the more they'll make and the less people will be layed off. Now if you don't buy that book and they lay people off that will collect unemployment compensation money, remember that is money you supported with your taxes. So in essence if you don't buy that book, you'll pay for it anyway.
