This is a set of strict ethical and professional guidelines developed by a nonprofit organization called the Appraisal Foundation. 

- Coin appraisal references: One of the most highly publicized books on the subject is: 
The Coin Collector's Survival Manual, by Scott Travers
It has been called  "one of the most important coin books ever written" by The New York Times and has sold more than 80,000 copies. It has received five awards from the prestigious Numismatic Literary Guild ...
