    guide to spotting flaws in coins worth money to collectors

    Not all coins with irregularities have the high auction or sales values into the tens of thousands of dollars you hear about from newspapers, TV spots, or trade media. Some errors from minting coins are worth only a few dollars up to twenty or so. This is nonetheless obviously a large multiple of the face value of the coins, enough to make this field of interest to many.

    Allen and Potter's book can be used in two ways. With its many magnified photographs of errors in specific coins, it can be used as a reference for identifying and confirming errors; and in relation to this, a pricing guide for such an errors.

    Many errors, however, are minute or can to the untrained eye appear a natural part of the striking of an individual coin. Beginners or less experienced persons might not pick up such errors. For these, the many different types of errors covered with descriptions and close-ups serve as a survey of errors. By reviewing these, one learns about kinds of errors which can have value to collectors.

    Since coins are being designed and struck all the time and there are countless numbers continually being circulated, not all errors can possibly be recorded or known about. There's always the possibility anyone, even an amateur, can discover an error in examining coins. Strike It Rich orients one to be able to spot many known errors and to possibility find an unknown one. Starting with the 5-page section "Coin Terms and Definitions" and then moving on to the descriptions of particular recognized errors is a reliable, efficient way to get the basic orientation.
