If you're going to be a serious error collector, your first steps are
to get basic reference books and basic equipment.
1. Get copies of The Error Coin Encyclopedia (4th ed.) and The
Official Price Guide to Mint Errors (6th ed.)
2. Get a 10x hand lens, a scale accurate to .01g, magnet, spreading
caliper or micrometer, and, if you can afford it, a stereomicroscope.
