FUN 2013 Wrap-up
At our recent Meeting at FUN 2013 in January, we had a lively gathering. The meeting presented the results of the Barber Quarters Varieties Survey
just completed), an agreement to move forward with Variety Surveys for the other Barber series,
a discussion about the Market, a good show and tell session. In addition, two BCCS members, Glenn Holsonbake and Mike Hayes, announced
that they have been invited by the ANA to present a Class on Barber Coinage during the ANA Summer Program.
Contemporary Counterfeits of Barber Coinage page debuts
We have just added a page to the website for contemporary, circulating, counterfeits of Barber coinage. These interesting
items were not meant for fooling coin collectors, but rather deceiving merchants, by passing them off as spending money. Lead or similar other
cast counterfeits are plentiful, but occasionally seen are some die-struck counterfeits in base metal rather than silver.

If you have some
interesting counterfeits, you can send digital photos, and if possible, describe the counterfeit: composition (if known), weight, and estimated
grade. You can send to the website at BCCS@barbercoins.org.
"How much is my coin worth?"
Tips on how to grade the various Barber Coins, along with approximate pricing guides are available.
See the grading pages under each series.
