Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Generation of coin collectors have grown up with the Lincoln cent. Now, following the Lincoln obverse's 100th anniversary (and the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth), Q. David Bowers provides a detailed study of this great American classic.

Lincoln cents are among the most fascinating coins in the entire American series," writes Bowers. "Believe it or not, they also offer some of the greatest challenges."

In this single volume you'll absorb the history of the coin's seven reverse designs, take an inside look at the minting process, and learn how to grade your collection, including Proofs. Bowers shares tips on becoming a smarter buyer. This edition includes a thorough market analysis for each date and mintmark, hundreds of new photographs, and a special appendix on error coins. New appendices show small-cent patterns, Lincoln tokens and medals, and a gallery of Lincoln images created during his lifetime and mourning his death. Read and enjoy, as you gain a better appreciation of America's most popular cent!

Q. David Bowers is a towering figure of great erudition in numismatic literature, and his Guide Book of Lincoln Cents is among the most important works on Lincoln numismatic scholarship." -from the foreword by Joel Iskowitz
