Volume #18 in Whitman's best-selling Bowers Series covers three of the most popular US coins: Mercury dimes, Standing Liberty quarters, and Liberty Walking half dollars. These classic silver coins were minted between 1916 and 1947, an era spanning two world wars and the Great Depression. Now the "Dean of American Numismatics," Q David Bowers, gives collectors a single-volume study of technical, historical, and market-oriented advice and insight. Contents covers how to grade your colletion, tips on smart buying, current retail values, and a thorough analysis of each date and mintmark. Lavishly illustrated in full color, the book features high-resolution enlargements for important overdates and other die varieties. Mintages, specifications, certified population date, and other details add to the book's importance as a standard reference. Colorful essays set the coins in the context of the time period. This Guide Book will deepen your appreciation and make you a smarter buyer and collector of these popular US coins. Book 18 of the series. (Transline)
