NEW HUNTINGTON COIN CLUB!
We had a blast!
Our first meeting of the River City Coin Club (RCCC) – November 9.
Not knowing who would show up, I was pleasantly surprised with the
enthusiasm around our tables. Each of us had knowledge to share and
each had the thirst to learn. We inspected and even bought and sold
some coins to kick start our club’s treasury.
Most gratifying was the in-person
interaction; discussing and sharing without a keyboard! Within a
half hour of meeting some brand new buddies, we shared freely about
all kinds of coin stuff.
The social hall of the Holy Spirit Orthodox Church is our club’s
home. It’s spacious, modern, comfortable and welcoming.
Starting January our regular meeting schedule will begin: the second
Thursday of every month at 7p. Look forward to educational sharing
and presentations, a door prize, snacks. Each meeting’s highlight
will be a coin auction!
Our next meeting will be Saturday December
16 at 4:30p.
Really really hope to see you there!
NGC recently received a fake 1972 Doubled Die Lincoln Cent, which is
not something that we see often.
GENUINE 1972 Double Die Lincoln Cent – courtesy
of Heritage Auctions.
There are a handful of varieties that are
regularly seen faked, including the Philadelphia and Denver 1942/41
Mercury Dimes, the 1955 Doubled Die Cent, and the 1937-D
Three-Legged Buffalo Nickel, though the latter is typically an
alteration rather than an outright counterfeit. Counterfeits of
other varieties are not particularly common, however, and can
sometimes catch you off guard.
