SPIRAL BOUND edition, First Revised Edition, 467 pages. Same book as Paperback and Hardback except Lydston and Chatham "Prototype Strike" Chapter had to be reduced a bit in size. The book's First Section is devoted to the Ike Group's Collectible Ike Varieties. The Second section details much of our research into these Varieties including more general research into the chaos of the early years of the Series design and minting. Those efforts combine to build a rich tapestry against which the interconnected stories of that era at the Mint and of our "Collectible" Ike Varieties become interesting and even entertaining at times. Written by Ike collectors for Ike collectors, the book balances a gentle approach that even novices can enjoy, against explorations into some exciting new concepts, some a bit technical, which should capture the full attention of advanced collectors and professional numismatists.

    Worth 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!!!

    John Roberts reviewed this book and posted his review under the paperback version: "* * * * * Jun. 24, 2011 By John Roberts "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."

    An 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!!!!!

    A must have for any Ike collector or someone who wants to start collecting Ikes. The book is easy to read with many photos representing coins you should be looking for. I bought the book, read it and already cherried 3 varieties I didn't previously know about!!

    I find Rob's writing entertaining and concise. He has isolated the problems associated with the production of the Eisenhower dollars and conveyed them clearly in terms that a collector can understand. This "labor of love" has cost him many, many hours of research. It certainly is a help in identifying the characteristics of individual Ikes. Good Job Rob, and keep up the good work on your next Volume.
