As some of you may know I'm currently a student at North Carolina State University (NCSU), one of the many great benefits of being at student at state is the resources available to me. One of the most useful resources on campus that I have found is the library, surprisingly enough we have a fairly good selection of books relating to numismatics! Despite the good selection of books there are no books relating specifically to large cents, however the university has a program that allows me to check out books from other universities around the country and have them shipped to me. I took advantage of this as soon as I was made of aware, and now I have three large cent die variety guides sitting at my desk. I have four large cents with me now, and I think I may have attributed my first one! Needless to say I'm completely hooked and I just may have to break down and buy the book so I can study them at my leisure. I have two more books on request, which should arrive in the next few days giving me enough time to get them before I head back home for Easter.
