My 756-3100 has been out of service since the first of Sept. Was some static all summer, but terrible by September 1 when I called Repair.

MARK BEN FORD
This book does not give detail but basically an overview of the first 101 most collected items mainly in porcelain and glass. Each section gives a short summary for the particular collectible and some pictures. The book is not about detail but brevity and glimpses into the category/artist/history, etc. of its creation and subsequent success as a much sought after collectible piece.
