Early American Coppers

Early American Coppers (EAC) is a not-for-profit numismatic specialty organization founded in 1967 to serve as a point of contact for collectors of early U.S. copper coins - Colonials, Half Cents, Large Cents, and Hard Time Tokens. Today EAC comprises over 1,600 members located throughout the United States. EAC members are deeply interested in the historical background, attribution, grading, rarity, and related aspects of the early coppers, as well as collecting and trading. Many EAC members are highly knowledgeable and prolific contributors to the numismatic literature of this country.

EAC publishes a bi-monthly magazine, Penny-Wise, with most issues running over 50 pages. Penny-Wise contains numerous original articles pertaining to early coppers. A number of articles which appeared first in Penny-Wise have subsequently been reprinted in The Numismatist. Three of the reprinted articles are Heath Award winners.


John Reich Collectors Society

The purpose of the John Reich Collectors Society (JRCS) is to encourage the study of numismatics, particularly United States gold and silver coins minted before the introduction of the Seated Liberty design, and to provide technical and educational information concerning such coins.

The Society publishes the John Reich Journal several times a year to keep its members updated on current research, new discoveries, and society news.
