LSCC News

LSCC identifies dangerous new counterfeit 1872-S Seated Half: In December, the LSCC confirmed a new counterfeit 1872-S Liberty Seated half dollar. It is deceptive enough that two of them have been encapsulated by third-party grading companies. Be on the lookout for this new counterfeit! Click left or see below under the E-Gobrecht and the Special Supplement, including key identification points. A detailed article about the counterfeit and its discovery will appear in the March issue of The Gobrecht Journal.

LSCC to teach again at the 2017 ANA Summer Seminar in June: After the huge success of the class “Developing a Passion for Liberty Seated Coinage” at its debut at the ANA Summer Seminar in Colorado Springs in 2016, the LSCC announces that we will again offer the course at the 2017 Summer Seminar. Next year, the course will be offered during the first session, June 18-21. Look for the Course Catalog in December for registration.

Recordings of the LSCC Annual Meeting at the ANA in Anaheim are now available. For those of you who were unable to attend the Summer ANA, the recordings are now available under the Education and Resources section of the website. Check here to view the recordings - noting the very large file sizes.
