Book Description given by Book Sneeze:
In late 2007 a collector found a double die cast 1969 Lincoln cent piece in a plain brown roll of coins. That penny was auctioned in early January 2008 for $126,500.00. To the untrained eye, that penny might look no different than any other. But in their concise and informative book, Ken Potter and Dr. Brian Allen give you all the tools you need to spot mint errors and turn small coins - ones you may have in your pocket right now, or that big glass jug at home - into big cash. They distill their years of collecting experience into simple chapters like 'Age Does Not Equal Value', 'Tools of the Trade', and 'Where to Sell Your Coins' that show you step-by-step how to spot and sell these treasures.
I think this book is written for a very specific reader, and I am not that person. It wasn't exciting and I'm not sure I took a whole lot from it. The end of the book has resources where you can go or check for selling your coins when you find flaws, etc. I personally do not have the time or patience for this kind of hobby so didn't find this book for me.
If you have an interest in coins the book is very affordable on Amazon - check it out here for just $12!
Overall I'm rating it with 3 stars ***, only because it didn't interest me in the least.
