The fourth edition of MEGA RED is the latest expanded version of the hobby’s best-selling “Red Book” (more than 24 million copies sold since 1946). With pages 30% larger than the regular edition’s, and weighing in at 1,504 pages (more than three times the page count), the new Deluxe Edition MEGA RED includes more historical information, extensive grading instructions with enlarged illustrations, a special 294-page in-depth feature on 222 years of U.S. ten-cent coins (Draped Bust, Capped Bust, Liberty Seated, Barber, Mercury, and Roosevelt dimes), and valuable essays on collecting and investing in rare coins, tokens, medals, and more.

MEGA RED has certified population data, more die varieties, more auction records, and more pricing in more grades than the regular-edition Red Book. It covers American coinage from colonial times to the modern day—half cents through $20 gold double eagles, plus bullion, commemoratives, Proof and Mint sets, significant tokens, errors, U.S. Philippine coins, modern Mint medals, and other collectibles. MEGA RED prices more than 8,000 items in up to 13 grades each, with 48,000 individual values, more than 15,000 auction records, and thousands of full-color images (thousands of which are updated or new to the fourth edition).

New appendices explore error and misstruck dimes; pattern dimes; counterstruck dimes; dime scrip issued by banks, merchants, and towns; “paper dimes” from the Treasury Department; Civil War sutlers’ “dime” tokens; Civil War ten-cent store cards and dimes used as planchets for silver Civil War tokens; dimes discovered in the SS Central America; the history of the famous 1894-S dime; a snapshot of the dime market in 1946; irradiated dimes; an illustrated essay on the greatest U.S. dimes; the “Liberty” subset of First Spouse gold coins; and more.

If you buy only one U.S. coin book this year, it should be the fourth edition of MEGA RED.
