Bowers shares secrets of being a smart buyer in today??s market. He analyzes each coin, year by year, from 1932 to 1998, and focuses a comprehensive section on each quarter from 1999 to date.
Full-color illustrations, current market values, a grading guide, and an appendix on the America the Beautiful silver bullions coins add to the book??s reference value. This is a must-have for every collector??s library. 352 pages ? 6 x 9 inches ? Softcover ? Full color ??David Bowers??s writing has given me a thoughtful background to the world of coins. Kudos to the U.S. Mint and to the many coin collectors who recognize the significance of these tiny works of art.?
