Ken Potter and Dr. Brian Allen
If you are a numismatist (a collector, or someone who studies coins), like my husband is, then you will definitely like this book.
I am not quite into coins like my husband, and even I liked this book.
It is very interesting and informative.
This book shows you how to look for errors in coins and also what errors to looks for, and the value because of those errors.
Some examples of errors are: doubling of letters, markings on the coin that are not supposed to be there, or rim chips.
There are plenty of photos to show you exactly what the errors are on the coins.
They even have photos to show how to examine coins properly under a desk lamp.
The authors seem to have covered everything in this book from myths about currency to the value of silver coins and paper monies.
It is a very interesting read, even if you are not a coin collector.
And, I would say if you are a coin collector, this is a wonderful resource for your library!
