In the fourth edition of the best-selling and award-winning 100 Greatest U.S. Coins, numismatic author Jeff Garrett takes the reader on a personal guided tour of the nation's greatest coinage. Each of the 100 Greatest was voted into place by leading coin dealers, researchers, and historians, says Whitman publisher Dennis Tucker. Inside the reader will find prized and seldom-seen rarities - the unique and high-valued pieces that collectors dream about, like the 1913 Liberty Head nickel and the 1804 dollar (the, King of American Coins). The book also explores more readily available and widely popular coins: pieces so beautiful or with such strange and fascinating stories that everybody wants one. 100 Greatest U.S. Coins is not just a fancy picture book. It's a time machine that takes the reader to a hundred different points in American history. And it's fascinating introduction to the hobby of collecting U.S. coins.
