technical series seminar deadlines approaching

With the Whitman Baltimore Expo just around the corner, it’s easy to ignore other upcoming events that are just as major. For example, the FUN Show in Orlando is in just a few months and the deadline for seminar registration prior to the event is Nov. 29. The ANA is offering two educational seminars before the start of the FUN convention. One of them is Counterfeit Detection: Classic Fakes & Chinese-made Counterfeits. This class offers people the opportunity to learn how to identify most U.S. counterfeit coins. Also, they will be able to discern the latest Chinese-made fakes that circulate in commerce. The instructor is Brian Silliman of Brian Silliman Rare Coins and former NGC grader/conserver. This event is Jan. 7-8 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The cost is $250…

War in the Pacific ‘W’ Mintmark I was in the self-checkout at Walmart four weeks ago here in Mt. Vernon, Ill., and received a little bit of loose change for my purchase. I didn’t check it until I got home and was very surprised to find a War in the Pacific with a “W” mintmark. I’m just wondering if it’s something that I should send in to one of the grading companies. In other words, would it be worth more later on by doing so? I understand that it’ll cost at least $30.00 to do so and also heard that “in the raw” is only worth maybe $25. I hope to hear a reply. Name and address withheld In Response to Richard Giedroyc’s Commentary I politely disagree with erudite and longtime numismatic colleague, Richard Giedroyc, whose…

mint shines with native american dollar series

The United States Mint Native American $1 series, which started in 2009, has proven to be a bit of a mystery to the general population.

However, the U.S. Mint has done an excellent job over the years of attracting attention to our dollar coins by selecting great themes and initiating unusual twists, like the enhanced uncirculated issues and West Point strikes. The Presidential series was great fun for those of a…
