Few books have excited the coin-collecting community like the Cherrypickers’ Guide. Since the first edition burst onto the scene in 1990, thousands of hobbyists have been searching for the rare die varieties described inside. This handy book tells you how to “cherrypick”—that is, how to examine coins that look normal at first glance, but have unusual characteristics: doubled and tripled dies, overdates, repunched mintmarks, and other features that can reveal a common coin to be a rare and valuable variety. With the close-up photographs and descriptions inside, you’ll learn exactly what to look for. That kind of knowledge truly is power! The Cherrypickers' Guide to Rare Die Varieties, sixth edition, volume I covers die varieties for half cents, large cents, small cents, two-cent and three-cent pieces, and nickels, fully updated and revised information for some of the most popular U.S. coin series, more than 1,00 images, information on more than 680 varieties, 150 newly published varieties, market values in multiple grades, detailed photo enlargements to show you what to look for when cherrypicking, and much more. The book is a result of many years of cumulative research and finessing by the lead authors, Bill Fivaz and J.T. Stanton, in cooperation with many collectors, scholars, dealers, and others in the numismatic community. It presents information unavailable in any other single source.
