Error guide Strike it Rich with Pocket Change is now available in its third edition from Krause Publications.
It takes a keen eye to spot them, but errors on coins produced by the U.S. Mint occur every year, and those errors are worth collectors’ time and effort. These coins can often be found in the pocket change one uses to purchase items every day.
This new edition of Strike it Rich, from renowned error coin experts Ken Potter and Dr. Brian Allen, explains the various types of common errors seen on coins, teaches collectors what to look for through detailed photographs and descriptions, and provides readers with an idea of what these mistakes of coin-making could be worth.
Features of this latest edition include:
• Dozens of new varieties of state quarters, Presidential dollars, “Westward Journey” nickels and Lincoln cents
• More defined photographs and illustrations
• Addition of type and degree of error information in the descriptions
