    I am 95% sure this will result in a new onslaught of questions and crappy photos of roadkill coins. I am 99% sure that those questions and photos will come from folks who have never purchased or read this, but are emboldened just by its existance . . . . . .

    Of what am I referencing? This book of course.

    So, this means I'll have to purchase the book to find out which coins out of my pocket change I'll get rich from. How many errors found in circulation can there be that would make me rich? The only three I can think of would be the copper 1943 penny, the 1982D small date non-zinc penny and the 1965 silver quarter. Maybe not exactly "rich" but worth a considerable something.

    And finding one of these three in my pocket change would be like waking up tomorrow and being 17 years old again. Not happening.

    I own one..
    It's a good book. I have no issues with it.
    Great references to coins that are really hard to actually find in circulation. But hey, you'll never know!

    But like the title says, will you become rich?

    There's a guy who claims he won the lottery jackpot 5 to 8 times, so he wrote a book about how he did it. I think my odds are the same for both books.

    The book is actually fine but I do agree the title is quite repetitive.

    I am somewhat surprised that it is listed as it does seem to be an free advertisement . In the past just listing the title of the book. author(s) and where one could find it was sometime questionable for moderators .

    The only people who get rich are the people who write the books!

    I didn't know that was "A Thing" . . . . .

    Where do I sign up!

    Ken Potter is a respectable numismatic authority. I take no exception to him writing this. The title however, is a bit disingenuous.

    Those I take issue with are folks who don't buy and READ the book, but jump on CT looking for other members to confirm their latest asphalt cent is the next biggest undiscovered . . . . . . . . .
    Rant off.

    “Strike it Rich with Pocket Change” or the alternative “Make Pocket Change with Pocket Change”

    I think you’ll sell more books with the former over the latter, but it is a teeny bit deceptive. :)
