Overview

Generations of coin collectors have grown up with the Lincoln cent. Now, as the coin nears its 100th anniversary (and the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth), Q. David Bowers provides a detailed study of this great American classic.

"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 absorb the history of the coin's two classic reverse designs, take an inside look at the minting process, and learn how to grade your collection, including Proofs. Bowers shares tips on becoming a smarter buyer. He even gives a sneak preview of what the U.S. Mint has in store with a 2009 redesign. The book includes a thorough market analysis for each date and mintmark, and a special appendix on error coins. Read and enjoy, as you gain a better appreciation of America's most popular cent.
