Strike It Rich with Pocket Change *Book Review*

Book Description:
In late 2007 a collector found a double die cast 1969 Lincoln cent piece in a plain brown roll of coins. That penny was auctioned in early January 2008 for $126,500.00. To the untrained eye, that penny might look no different than any other. But in their concise and informative book, Ken Potter and Dr. Brian Allen give you all the tools you need to spot mint errors and turn small coins - ones you may have in your pocket right now, or that big glass jug at home - into big cash. They distill their years of collecting experience into simple chapters like 'Age Does Not Equal Value', 'Tools of the Trade', and 'Where to Sell Your Coins' that show you step-by-step how to spot and sell these treasures.

My Thoughts:  
This book is so INTERESTING...the many different ways that a penny or other pocket change could be worth more than what we think is unbelievable. I however did not have any coins in my purse that would bring me the big bucks. It is also very fun for the kids to look at all their coins trying to find something that is in the book. If you have tons of coins laying around the house or in a piggy bank you might want to check this book out you never know when you are going to find the rare number or letter and STRIKE IT RICH.
