    In this updated 2nd edition of the award winning book, Robert W Shippee reveals how he got serious about building a menaingful collection of rare coins. His carefully assembled Waccabuc Collection of half cents through $20 gold double eagles sold at public auction for a profitable $1.5 million! The first edition quickly became one of the most talked-about books on collecting and investing in US coins. Longtime hobbyist read ti and said "I wish I'd had a guide like this when I started collecting." Shippee updates the market reports on most of the coins in his case-study collection. He expands his discussion of rare-coin indexes and his comparison of coins vs the stock market. He makes new analysises of his coins by denomination, tracking where they would be value wise, a decade-plus after their sale. "With greater knowledge comes greater confidence as a collector," Shippee says. Now you can learn from his spectacular successes and perhaps even more from his costly mistakes. Find out yourself why Q Bowers calls Pleasure and Profit "one of the most useful books in American numismatics"
