Wanted some advice...I found a Cherrypickers Pocket Guide -Top 150, by Fivaz & Stanton on eBay. Would this be a good book to purchase, or would I just be better off buying a full version of the Cherrypickers Guide? This Pocket edition is listed for $17.95 + $2.75 shipping. Does anyone have this pocket guide and is it worth buying?

I've got both and I end up using the full version more, but I did say I have both.

For starting out, get the full version and do some reading and understanding, but still get the compact version for quick reference.

Of course it comes in 2 parts now.

Ahh ok, so there's two parts to the Pocket Guide? I wasn't aware of that. That sounds like a good idea, it could never hurt to have both. Plus I assume the Full Edition would have alot of valuable information in it that the pocket guide would not. Preciate the reply fcrazo!

No, the pocket guide is just 1 booklet based on the original early 1990s. The full version used to be 1 but has since expanded to the point in which they split them into 2 volumes sold seperately.

The Cherrypickers' Guide to Rare Die Varieties, Fifth Edition, Volume I. This volume covers all United States series from half cents through nickel five-cent piece.

The Cherrypickers' Guide to Rare Die Varieties, Fourth Edition, Volume II. This volume covers all United States series from half dimes through modern dollars, gold and commemoratives.








Hope this clears it up. Happy hunting.

Some advise. Don't make it too obvious that you are cherrypickin', some dealers don't like it. Especially if you are taking too much time at a table or end up not buying. For some as long as they have made their money, it's ok.

When you hunt, know what you want to hunt for first. Send us pics if you find something.

This is the kind of book they should issue in electronic format. Nook or .epub or .mobi would be great!
