Generations of coin collectors have grown up with the ever-popular Lincoln cent. Now, Q. David Bowers provides a detailed study of this great American classic, from its birth in 1909 through changes in alloys and designs up to the modern day.

“Lincoln cents are among the most fascinating coins in the entire American series,” writes Bowers. “Believe it or not, they also offer some of the greatest challenges.”

In this single volume you’ll learn the history of the Lincoln cent’s seven reverse designs, take an inside tour of the minting process, and learn how to grade your coins, including Proofs. Bowers shares tips on how to become a smarter buyer and build a great collection.

This updated and revised third edition includes a thorough market analysis for each date and mintmark, hundreds of photographs, and insight on error coins, patterns, alternative 2009 Bicentennial designs, related tokens and medals, and more.

New appendices explore the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee’s review of the 2010 Shield design, a snapshot of the Lincoln cent market in 1946, and how to get a new die variety listed in hobby publications like the Red Book.

Read and enjoy, as you gain a better appreciation of America’s most popular cent!

320 pages, full color, softcover. By Q. David Bowers, with a foreword by David W. Lange.
