Research is the life blood of collecting. You must read everything you can get your hand on related to your specific area of collecting.
Having said that, there are many volumes out there that can provide excellent information.
The internet has allowed many folks to get information that would otherwise be unavailable to them.
If you need help, ask to use our books, please stop by the shop and browse to your hearts content.
I submit the following warning that if you use the internet as your sole source of information, you will find that a lot of what you think you know is invalid, inaccurate and in some cases just outright wrong.
Check your references with multiple sources to make sure you're operating with complete knowledge of the subject.
If you’re in doubt, ask us, our information is free and valuable at twice the price....!
