The Exchange : New In the Errorscope: Volume 23 Number 3 – May / June 2014

New In the Errorscope: Volume 23 Number 3 – May / June 2014

The latest issue of Errorscope, CONECA'S (The Combined Organizations of Numismatic Error Collectors of America) bimonthly journal is now at the printers. The May / June issue should be available to members on or around May 1st from the CONECA Errorscope Online Members Only Area (assessable from the banner at the top of the CONECA homepage) and a hard copy should be showing up in mailboxes to all current members at about the same time.

 

In this issue, Robert Knauss continues his series of "In Search of Standing Liberty Quarter Varieties and Errors" and focuses this article on the 1918/7 - S over date. Knauss uses several photographs in his article showing some markers of this variety.

Jon Sullivan gives us a show report on the 59th Annual Winter FUN Show held in Orlando, Fla. One of coins featured in Sullivan's article is a 1911 Lincoln cent double-strike off center that Rich Schemmer had in one of his cases.

Joseph Ceravone discusses what is involved in setting up a table as a CONECA State Representative at a coin show. Ceravone's suggested blueprint makes it sound so easy that the rewards will definitely outweigh the effort, what better way to see and study different die varieties and errors. If you are interested in becoming a State Representative in your area, please contact James Motley at jmotley@alpinecomputers.net
