Positive in all areas

This is a very good book. It has many high quality pictures of mint errors. It also has lots of information on different types of mint errors and some information on the values of them. Recommended if you are new to the hobby or if you just want to learn something new.

Fabulous! A very easy read!

The illustrations in this book are superb and are very detailed so you know just what to look for.This book tells you about different coinage including pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and dollars. It shows you what "flaws" to look for from the mint and tells you which ones are more collectable vs ones that aren't collectable at all.

Complete guide

'WOW' .. this was my reaction when I glanced through the pages of this book immediately upon receipt. I must say it's a very well researched book with lots of details, examples, images etc. I may update the rating from four to five stars once I have found such a 'special' coin and could sell it at a price mentioned in the book.

Loved this book so much!

There's a few sections the book could have done without, like the chapter on record-setting auctions. It would've been great to balance it with a section on the most underrated coins, or the best bargains.
If you're interested in getting started, this book is for you. For anyone with experience, it's probably not appropriate

Good for the beginners

Author does an excellent job in teaching how one could & should start a coin collection. When I was a kid, I made a stupid decision to collect stamps, which can be cut up and burnt. Now coins are much more durable, and their value is obvious.

Useful content with good guides, tips & techniques

Enjoyable book, and the tips are worthwhile. I tried collecting this way, but was discouraged by a lack of success. Having read this short book, I'm going to give it a go again and see what happens. Now I know a better way to do it.

Useful book

I thought that this was a great book. I have been thinking about getting into collecting coins for a while now and this book gave me a great place to start. I only wish I had the money to buy a metal detector now, but hopefully this will help me to get enough to buy one.
