I wanted to take some time and address a passion of mine that has intrigued me since I started collecting.
I have always loved Americans first coins and copper coins in particular but since they have always been so expensive I never thought I would be able to collect them. As I researched them I found a few articles on counterfeits and electrotypes, this sparked my interest and decided that I might be able to collect Early American Copper after all!

Fast foreword several years I have managed to acquire a few lovely examples and have made a poster below.
Once I have had them imaged properly I will address each one and give further explanations.
 

A wonderfull article from ANACS website.....When Fakes Become Collectable by David F. Fanning
