Ganz Offers Tools for Investing By Numismatic News
September 04, 2008
interest in rare coins is blossoming as more people discover
coin collecting. People love a good treasure hunt, and what
better excursion than a search for rare coins. With the State
quarter program bringing greater attention to error coins
and their potentially higher value, there's a growing awareness
of the historically rich and potentially profitable world
of rare coins.
In his new book Profitable Coin Collecting, David L. Ganz,
past president of the American Numismatic Association, discusses
the insight and impact gained from the trusted Salomon Brothers
survey, reviews grading identifiers for the more common of
the rare issues and offers sound advice and statistical evidence
for planning rare coin investments.
"If you're like many people, you want to start investing
in coins right now," writes Ganz, a senior partner in
the law firm of Ganz & Hollinger, P.C., New York. "You
also want to know which coins are easiest to buy and sell,
and recognizing that past performance is no guarantee of future
results, you want to know which coins have been the top performers
over the last half century."
In the last half of the book Ganz explores the time-will-tell
philosophy of predicting coin values by examining pricing
history for a historic selection of America's rare coins,
including the 1838-O half dollar, 1946-P war nickel and 1933
Thomas Jefferson silver dollar, among others.
