The guide Book of Washington Quarters, 2nd Edition is an in-depth study of our nation’s most popular modern coin. It features the colorful historical research that readers expect from Q David Bowers (the “dean of American Numismatics”), including a biography of the United States’ first president, the early years of the quarter dollar and the history of the Washington quarter series starting in 1932. Bowers shares secrets of being a smart buyer in today’s market. He analyzes each coin, year by year, from 1932 to 1998, and focuses a comprehensive section on each quarter for 1999 to date. Full-color illustrations, current market values, a grading guide, and a appendix on the America the Beautiful silver bullion coins add to the book’s reference value. This is a must-have for every collectors library.
