Review: As a collector of English Milled, I purchase your price guide yearly, and I must say it proves its weight in gold every time. (S Turner, Lincoln, UK).
Review: I can think of one or two hard-backed and rather pricey books on collecting modern coins that fail to provide their buyers with so much as half the useful knowledge served up in this slim A5 paper-back.
Review: Douglas says: ‘This is a very well presented little book which I find perfect for pricing my modest collection of GB coins’.
