The Guide Book of Washington and State Quarters—the most recent addition to Whitman’s Bowers Series of numismatic books—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 America’s 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, date by date, from 1932 to 1998, and focuses a comprehensive section on each state quarter from 1999 to date. Certified and field populations, historical and current market values, and auction records add to the book’s reference value. Full color throughout; illustrated
