A Guide Book of Lincoln Cents byQ. David Bowers- Book review

This book, as the title suggests has detailed information of the American Lincoln cents made from 1900 to the latest coins. Under each year, there is details on the number of coins minted, the mint name, etc. There is plenty of color photographs, making the book much more appealing. Under each year, we can also find details of the error coins and detail on how to identify the mint error. The book also discusses on the Lincoln cent designs, the process of coin minting and coin grading in general. This book can also be used as a reference book to access the value of the coins a collector owns. This book is 320 pages in length, and it very informative for a beginner. One fun fact I learnt is that the composition of the cent changes over time. Since the mid of 1982, the cent is made of copper plated zinc.
