Through the direction of editor Ken Potter (along with authors Bill Fivaz and J.T. Stanton), dozens of new varieties have been added across all coin denominations. Throughout the book photographs have been upgraded, and new pictures have been added. You'll benefit from accurate market values that are based on retail prices and auction results that have been studied coin-by-coin in conjunction with a panel of hobby experts and specialists. You will also appreciate the fine-tuned coin descriptions and additional updated factors such as rarities and interest levels.
The Cherry Pickers' Guide will show you how to examine a collection of otherwise normal coins looking for unusual characteristics: doubled and tripled dies, overdates, repunched mintmarks, and other features that can reveal a "common" coin to be a rare and valuable variety.
