The Official Blackbook Price Guide to United States Postage Stamps 2015, 37th Edition Reviews
For the price this is a good reference price guide to U.S. postage stamps. It is a paperback book that is very handy to use. All stamp photos are in black and white, they are a little small ,but still recognizable as long as I used a magnifying glass just to make sure that the stamp and the book photo were the same. Also I had to use a clip to keep the pages of the book open, since it seemed like it always wanted to close when I finally found the section of stamps I was looking for.
This guide is great for updating prices quickly if your not looking for too much accuracy. Some of the disadvantages include: not making clear numbering of prices of blocks, strips, pairs and not listing BOB items currently like airmails etc.
I was very disappointed that the stamps weren't in color and more clearly depicted. The majority of the stamps they display have 4 reference numbers. I have some stamps (US) that have 6 numbers, so I couldn find the value they now have in this particular book.
Nice price guide but I think it has many of the values too high, Still it gives you a nice starting point to see where you stand on stamp prices. Nice lay out and Black and White pictures.
good book for a checklist for your stamp collection, has pricing, and all the Scott numbers, little checkbox at each Scott number to check so you can carry this with you to shows etc. Very handy.
A gift for my elderly father to use for his stamp collection that his mother started many years ago.
Excellent guide but for the variations in some stamps which really need glossy color pages to differentiate from the regular version of a stamp.
