    Great Book w/ a lot of information!!This book is packed with every coin error out there and tells you the most they have sold for, as well.

    Christmas giftThis is a gift. I have no idea if this is a really great purchase or just a piece of garbage. I’m hoping it fits in somewhere in between those two choices.

    Useful Guide to Error CoinsSent this to a family member who’s started collecting and organizing coins. He was delighted because he hadn’t found a good reference on error coins and now plans to pursue learning more.

    Great buy for new collectorsThis book is so helpful to me. I am new to coin collecting and it’s a great reference. I wish the authors would do an update edition for current coins because my interest is in finding die errors in new coins. I use this book for my error searching and I love the pictures!! I’m finding errors on coins not listed in the book though. Great reference guide!!

    Baby steps as a beginner.This is a great book for beginners like me. When I started playing with the idea of going through all of the coins we had thrown in coffee cans over the years and had “forgotten” about; I soon realized that I needed a coin book that would show me how to begin the process of identifying error coins. A book that not only listed the coin and error; but a book that would take a beginner step-by-step through the process of identifying, verifying and preparing coins for a collection.This book does that and a lot more.Aside from the ease of using this book, I like the way the author highlights some of the people and places to visit in order to get one step closer to knowing if your coin is a real error coin or if it has been made to look like it is an error coin.I cannot say that I got rich or that I know everything about this process by using this book; but it gave me ability to begin collecting, which is what I set out to do.The author displays a vast knowledge of the process and he doesn’t guess along the way. He tells it like he sees it, he speaks in understandable words and verifies his research before giving it to the public. A beginner could not ask for much more than that.This is a great little book to have and the author has given me a thirst for collecting and knowing more!

    Hard read not enough examplesDon’t clarify different things very well could use a few more examples when explaining different yet similar errors
