The Liberty Seated Collectors Club is a group of over six hundred collectors and dealers dedicated to the study and attribution of the American silver Liberty Seated coinage of the 19th century. Social interactions through a host of regional meetings throughout the United States are a key element of the "LSCC Experience".

The Gobrecht Journal and the E-Gobrecht are the official publications of the club. The Gobrecht Journal is published three times each year. Issues are 52 pages in length and are distributed to club members in March, July, and November.  Sample articles from the Gobrecht Journal are available via the "Gobrecht Journal - Facts and Online Articles" link above. 

The E-Gobrecht, a monthly electronic email based publication, is distributed to club members and interested non-members at no cost. To receive the E-Gobrecht, send an email to Bill Bugert, our E-Gobrecht editor requesting to be added to the distribution list. 

The Gobrecht Journal is research orientated and contains articles on all denominations of Liberty Seated coinage, from the half dime to the Trade dollar. The E-Gobrecht contains  information of a more timely nature, such as recent auction sales, LSCC regional meeting announcements and exhibits and feature articles on new variety discoveries. Advertising within the Gobrecht Journal is available for a fee; contact the Gobrecht Journal editor for further information. For free advertising in the E-Gobrecht, contact the E-Gobrecht editor.

Joining the LSCC is easy and the $20 annual fee is the Best Value in Numismatics. Simply download and print the LSCC Brochure (PDF Format) and mail to Len Augsburger with payment. For any LSCC membership questions or support needs, please contact Gerry Fortin at Wuximems@hotmail.com.
