This 5th edition, Volume 1 of a classic covers U.S. coins from half cents to nickel five-cent pieces and shows collectors how to 'cherrypick' a coin collection to find repunched mintmarks, overdates, and other details elevating a seemingly-common coin to 'rare' condition. It offers enlarged, high-resolution photos of each coin's special attributes and a lay-flat, spiral binding format lending to easy use with a hardcover spine to locate quickly on a shelf. Serious coin collectors will find it a 'must' reference.
