Description

Cherrypickers' Guide to Rare Die Varieties, 6th Edition, Volume II
The newest volume of the best-selling Cherrypickers’ Guide includes many new die varieties and thoroughly updated research and market prices. It covers some of the most popular U.S. coin series, including Capped Bust half dimes, dimes, and quarter dollars; Liberty Seated half dimes, dimes, and quarters; Barber dimes and quarters; twenty-cent pieces; Mercury dimes; Roosevelt dimes; Standing Liberty quarters; and Washington quarters. To “cherrypick” in the coin-collecting hobby means to examine a coin that appears normal at first glance, looking for unusual characteristics—like doubled and tripled dies, overdates, and repunched mintmarks—that reveal it to be rare and valuable. In the Cherrypickers’ Guide, close-up photographs and text descriptions show collectors precisely what to look for. The book includes rarity and popularity ratings, market analysis, and retail values. Coauthor Bill Fivaz, a coin collector since 1950, has earned recognition as one of the country’s most respected authorities on numismatic errors and die varieties. He is a longtime contributor to the Guide Book of United States Coins (the “Red Book”). With the late J.T. Stanton he coauthored the first Cherrypickers’ Guide in 1990, launching the modern boom in interest in die varieties. Volume editor Larry Briggs is well known to the hobby community as a dealer, author, and educator. He served the American Numismatic Association as president of its Authentication Committee. A student of history and archaeology, Briggs served in the U.S. Air Force and worked for Ford Motor Company before launching his own business, Larry Briggs Rare Coins, in 1978.
