The Guide Book of United States Paper Money is a collector’s price guide and history of the paper currency of the United States dating from federal issues introduced during the Civil War to modern-day cash. Written by numismatists Arthur L. and Ira S. Friedberg, the 416-page guide is printed in full color with hundreds of high-resolution images.

Thousands of federally issued notes are cataloged in detail in the Guide Book of United States Paper Money. Some are valuable rarities like Gold Certificates and $1,000 Federal Reserve Notes. Others are currency found in our wallets today. The book explores topics such as grading standards; star notes, the $2 bill, and World War II notes; American money in the Civil War; the Bureau of Engraving and Printing; how cash is designed, printed, and distributed; how to collect, store, and care for paper money; and the many kinds of federal paper money printed from the 1860s to today’s Federal Reserve Notes. The authors cover recent developments in the hobby including possible redesigns of the $20, $10, and $5 bills.

On the market side, the book combines the standard Friedberg cataloging system with retail values in multiple grades for each note.
