Strike it Rich with Pocket Change
Okay, can I say I just love this book. Strike it Rich with Pocket Change is chocked full of information on how to spot pocket change that may or may not be worth lots of money. I know I will look at my change with different eyes. I'm the crazy person who picks up pennies on the ground and now I will make sure I do it more often. You never know when you may pick up a treasure. The illustrations in this book are superb and are very detailed so you know just what to look for. This book tells you about different coinage including pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and dollars. It shows you what "flaws" to look for from the mint and tells you which ones are more collectable vs ones that aren't collectable at all. I read through this book in less than 2 hours and then started looking at my coins. I've not struck it rich yet but it sure is fun to hope.
I would advise anyone who wants to collects pocket change to give this book a try. I received this book in e-book form to review but wish I had gotten it in physical book form. I will be purchasing another copy of this book for a birthday gift for a coin collector in my life. I receive this book at no charge from Booksneeze.com in exchange for an honest review and honestly it is one of my favorites so far.
