A Quick Reference to
the Top Lincoln Cent
Die Varieties

by Gary Wagnon, Karen Peterson, Kevin Flynn

Here is a look at a couple of pages from the book

"When you stop to think about it -- finding just one coin that is listed in this book
-- will pay for the book many times over!"

    This neat spiral bound 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" pocket book contains 144 pages crammed full of the pertinent information needed to identify and price what what the authors feel are the top Lincoln cent varieties (there are a few more than 100 listed in this book).
    By eliminating most of the typical introductory type chapters that are often included in larger format books (such as those that go into great detail diagnosing how varieties are created,  how to tell die doubling apart from lesser forms of doubling, etc.), this book cuts past the repetitive clutter and delves right into the variety listings.
    Additionally, by reducing text size and the wise cropping images, the authors were able to present images at a size that are large and easy to view -- showing every single variety to best advantage.  In fact, most of the images in this book are far superior to the tiny images found in the Cherrypickers' Guide To Rare Die Varieties!  In effect, it is an excellent companion to the CPG where a collector wants to get a better look at what many of those varieties really look like -- plus it includes some better varieties missed in the CPG!  When you stop to think about it -- finding just one coin that is listed in this book -- will pay for the book many times over!
    Each variety includes a brief description of what it is and what to look for, Wexler listing numbers (for the most part), cross reference listing numbers to Cherrypickers' Guide and CONECA, a rarity guide, an ANACS population report, values and an additional comments section.
    This book was designed for easy carrying to conventions and shops where other larger format books become cumbersome and heavy to lug around.  It's the type of book you can throw into your suite coat pocket (or the back pocket of you jeans) and forget it's there until you need it!   Covering varieties spanning from 1909 through 1997, the regular retail price on this book is $24.95.   It is now out-of-print and getting hard to find.
    We have purchased one of the author's entire remaining supply and will offer the book at a discount until the supply grows low (at which point we will raise it to $24.95 again).
