A revised numbering system has made it simpler to use the fourth edition of The Cherrypickers? Guide to Rare Die Varieties, Vol. 2.
Written by Bill Fivaz and J.T. Stanton, the book is now being published by Whitman Publishing, LLC, publisher of the Red Book.
Covered are U.S. coin series that start with silver half dimes and range up the denominational scale to all gold coins and also commemorative issues.
Tips are offered about where to check for design elements that make a common coin a rare variety. A guide is provided to help the reader understand each coin?s rarity and several prices are given for each.
There is a cross reference to the old numbering system employed in prior editions so that readers can make the transition from the old to the new.
Copies are not yet available, but check the Whitman Web site, www.whitmanbooks.com, for price and ordering information.
