COLLECTIBLE IKE VARIETIES - FACTS, PHOTOS and THEORIES
eBook (PDF), 501 Pages
HARDCOVER, Revised First Edition. Same core content as the First Edition but with many minor corrections. Same book as the Revised Paperback Edition. The First Section presents our top 21 Collectible Ike Varieties (our DIVA's). The Second Section is the core of the Ike Group's research: highlights include a photo copy of Herb Hick's amazing 1974 article on the three 71-72 reverses known at that time; a photo copy of Del Romine's only published article on Die States; a pithy essay by Sam Petry whom many of you will recognize from the PCGS US Coin Forum; a sharp essay by Andy on minting metallurgy; photo copies of two sets of amazing US Mint Ike hub and die records unearthed by Roger Burdette; and several chapters that gently explore some interesting technical issues. A big book (8X11, 499 pages), a valuable resource for modern coin collectors and essential for Ike collectors interested in the why's and how's of the turbulent first few years of the Series.

Sep 18, 2011Worth it's weight in GOLD, this incredibly informative and beautifully illustrated book will change any IKE enthusist into an instant expert. Kudos to Rob Ezerman, and the other members of the IKE GROUP for a 5-Star production. At times, I feel like I am reading a hybrid between a good Detective novel and a great History book, with a lot of good humor thrown in to keep thing light. Highly scientific at times,(which is a breath of fresh air in the coin world these days) and, supremely logical, this book will go down in History as one of the truly great Numismatic creations, that creates a new Paradigm of thought-structure, and, I'm sure proceeding Volumes will be as much of a joy to read, and re-read, as this one has been. Highest Recommendations!!!
Aug 21, 2011By John Roberts (copied from his early review of the First Edition paperbound version). "Jun. 24, 2011, Five Stars: the advanced collector of Eisenhower Dollars will find a treasure trove of information within. This exhaustive work not only focuses on variety types, it offers insights into the 'how' and 'why' behind the coins. Most importantly, it is essential for an understanding of the future direction of this field."
Aug 20, 2011An invaluable must have for anyone who wants to collect Ikes. Very easy reading and book tells you what to look for as far as varieties and then shows you. Can't get much simpler then that. Wish I had bought this sooner. Helped me cherry 1 die clash and still looking for more!!! Just a phenominal job!! Thanks to the Ike Group Founders or the Super 7 for their tireless and dedicated efforts on the book!!!!!
