Milestone: 50th anniversary of Kovels’ Antiques Price Guide



BEACHWOOD, Ohio – It’s time to celebrate—the 50th anniversary edition of the perennially popular Kovels’ Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide by Terry Kovel and Kim Kovel is now available at bookstores and online at

The all-new Kovels’ Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide 2018 has 20,000 prices and 2,500 pictures arranged in over 750 categories. It’s the most complete price guide available, from the most trusted name in the industry. It features exceptionally well-organized, wide-ranging, up-to-the-minute information, and includes more tips, marks, logos, and prices than any other competitive title. Kovels’ is the only guide with real prices based on actual sales from the previous year—never estimates—and reviewed by experts for accuracy.

Antiques collectors have turned to the Kovels for their peerless annual price guide since the first edition appeared in 1968. Kovels’ 2018 price guide enables any reader to identify items and what they are worth. Unlike other guides, which focus on English and high-priced items, Kovels’ covers American and some international items. The book is organized by categories most sought-after by collectors, including depression glass, dolls, jewelry, furniture, art pottery, and sports memorabilia. Plus, this year’s book includes a special 50th anniversary bonus section—Terry Kovel’s “Reflections” on the most important events, auctions, social changes and fads that have affected the antiques and collectibles market over the past 50 years. With indexes, cross-references, and expert commentary throughout, the Kovels empower readers to price their own antiques and buy, sell and collect with confidence.

Fifty comes once in a lifetime. The 2018 Kovels’ Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide is now available at bookstores and online at
