Every day I get 3 or so questions and most of them are answered by pointing at the correct reference. Buy the books first! Every collector I know uses book author and page to reference questions. Like Stubbs pg 256 for example. The "must have" selections are in bold. These are my top choices and only an opinion.  Others have different opinions
