If you're like most people, you've probably found a penny lying in the street. Maybe you've even come across a nickel or a dime--or really hit the big time and picked up a stray half dollar.
Did it ever occur to you that coins like these might be worth a lot of money? The odds are against it, or course: most of the "lucky pennies" that turn up at our feet are as common as three-leaf clovers, and so are most of the coins we get in our pocket change. But every now and then, Lady Luck flashes an extra-special smile and directs our attention to a truly exceptional coin--one that's worth a premium of hundreds or thousands of dollars to collectors. And it happens a lot more often than you might think.--Preface (Scott A. Travers) -- "Ralph Nader of the numismatic world."--The New York Times
