Strike-It-Rich-with-Pocket-Change-4th-Edition It takes a keen eye to spot them -- and a little know-how -- but errors on coins produced by the U.S. Mint occur every year. And these errors can be worth a fortune to coin collectors. Strike It Rich with Pocket Change, 4th Edition, shows the reader how to detect errors, what to look for and how to cash in on them.

This book by Ken Potter and Brian Allen has a strong appeal for someone with a mild to dedicated interest in coins, while drawing upon the treasure hunter in all of us -- anyone who is looking for a hobby that does not require a great up-front investment, yet offers the potential of discovering valuable rarities. Any collector who has completed the standard set of a type or series now has an opportunity to broaden the scope of that collection.

  • The "Everyman" book focuses on coins readily found in pocket change and appeals to the treasure hunter in all of us
  • Attractive and easy-to-read format - no insider or complicated jargon to confuse the reader
  • Detailed images with arrows to guide the eye, aiding in identification of treasures

Ken Potter and Dr. Brian Allen are leading experts in the field with an absolute passion for uncovering the next scarce variety that eludes the U.S. Mint's quality control procedures. Ken Potter has been a dealer in U.S. coins, specializing in errors and varieties, for many years with a sterling reputation for accuracy and a keen eye.
