Strike It Rich with Pocket Change Review by melissa bentley

I requested this book from in return for an honest review. I thought this would be a really cool book in case I come across a coin that looks a little different from the others. And it is! It gives you lots of tips and tricks to find that different coin, and where you can go if you want to sell it.When coins are made, sometimes there are printing errors and this great read teaches you how to find them. These coin errors are a lot more common than people think, but most people do not notice the coin in their pocket change that is special, so they spend it on a chocolate bar at the gas station!This book is very easy to read and understand and I feel the authors do a great job at explaining everything. The authors, Ken Potter & Dr. Brain Allen are coin error experts. They explain in detail the types of common errors made on coins and they teach you what to look for. They provide detailed pictures to help you on your hunt.Although it takes a sharp eye to spot them, the time and effort you put in to analyzing your coins are definitely worth it, even if you have just one error coin. Potter and Allen also give you an idea of to what you special coin is worth.I think this is a book everyone can benefit from, because everyone has pocket change, and everyone wants to get rich quick! This book gives you the tools to do that if you have an error coin.From now on, I will look at and analyze all of my coins before spending them, in case I get a special coin.
