A Guide Book of Mercury Dimes, Standing Liberty Quarters, and Liberty Walking Half Dollars, 1st edition Volume #18 in Whitman’s best-selling Bowers Series covers three of the most popular U.S. coins: Mercury dimes, Standing Liberty quarters, and Liberty Walking half dollars. These classic silver coins were minted between 1916 and 1947, an era spanning two world wars and the Great Depression. Now the “Dean of American Numismatics,” Q. David Bowers, gives collectors a single-volume study of technical, historical, and market-oriented advice and insight.

The Guide Book of Mercury Dimes, Standing Liberty Quarters, and Liberty Walking Half Dollars gives you instructions on how to grade your collection, tips on smart buying, current retail values, and a thorough analysis of each date and mintmark. Lavishly illustrated in full color, the book features high-resolution enlargements for important overdates and other die varieties. Mintages, specifications, certified population data, and other details add to the book’s importance as a standard reference. Colorful essays set the coins in the context of the time period.
