I am scheduled to give a counterfeit detection seminar at the 2024 FUN show. It will be at 11:45 AM on Thursday, January 4.The emphasis will be on how to spot counterfeit coins in counterfeit slabs on-line. There will be handout so that you can use my tips on your computer, cell phone and iPad at home and at the shows.

I hope to meet you there!

    Would love to attend but unfortunately, I'm not going to FUN. Would be nice to have this recorded and uploaded to reach more people.

    Next time why not record it and post on YouTube?

    i recently visited a coin dealer to the north of me and he was mighty proud of his newly purchased walker collection ... all generally the same color, all generally the same grade ... i didnt have the heart to tell him ...

    regardless of how many posts I have, I don't consider myself an "expert" at anything
  • Was the lecture recorded or added to youtube? I would love to hear that.

    FUN has put up videos of the educational forums they have run in the past. I am sure they will do that again. My presentation was taped.

    Thanks Bill, I would have loved to make it down to FUN and your seminar. A real important topic! I'll definitely check out the video when/if it becomes available. Your insights and collection are always worth checking out.

    I attended this presentation and I’m glad I did. Bill did an excellent job describing many different counterfeits. Thanks, Bill!

    I also attended and was sitting close to Richie, I think we both really enjoyed Bill's professional presentation. Watch the vid, very informative.
