The latest installment in Whitman’s best-selling and award-winning Cherrypickers’ Guide series, this volume covers collectible die varieties of half cents through nickel five-cent pieces. Included are some of the most popular American coin types, including Lincoln cents and Buffalo nickels.

This handy book tells you how to “cherrypick”—that is, how to examine a collection of coins to locate those with unusual characteristics: doubled and tripled dies, overdates, repunched mintmarks, and other features that can reveal a supposedly common coin to be a rare and valuable variety.

Few books have taken the coin-collecting community by storm like the Cherrypickers’ Guide. Since the first edition burst onto the scene in 1990, thousands of hobbyists have been searching for the rare and valuable die varieties described inside.

Book-review highlights:

“The fact that the Cherrypickers’ Guide is entering its sixth edition should tell you something about the value of the information it contains. As a former textbook writer, I can tell you that books with little demand don’t make it to a sixth edition.”

“With knowledge of what to look for, the Cherrypickers’ Guide will give you the information that will allow you to cherrypick dealers’ stock.”

“Obviously, this is an extremely important work that I can see going into further editions.”
