"A Guide Book of Lincoln Cents" by Q. David Bowers continues
the series of “Guide Book” and other “Official Red Book” guides

all information the advanced collector needs to know about
that coin.  For each year general information about that year
as well as numismatic information specific to that year is also
given. Detailed prices for all grades as well as certified
populations by grade are given by coin.  Detailed striking and
sharpness are given by date and mint.  Full color pictures of
the coins show additional details described in the text.

The book gives advice on analyzing color and strike as well
as information on being a smart buyer.  Market realities and
establishing fair market prices are detailed.  There is
information on errors, patterns, and varieties in the series.
The book is a must for all advanced collectors of Lincoln Cents.
The book may be purchased online from the publisher at
www.WhitmanBooks.com as well as from book sellers, coin
dealers and hobby retailers for $19.95."
