Interesting articles in June 2014 NGC eNews
« on: June 10, 2014, 11:33:35 PM »
I found three interesting articles in the latest NGC eNews:

1.  PandaCollector's "It's a Panda, Panda, Panda World!" http://www.ngccoin.com//news/viewarticle.aspx?NewsletterNewsArticleID=2677  History of Panda coins and Mr. Martin Weiss, founder of PandaAmerica, played an important role in its popularity.  Facinating reading.
2.  "Counterfeit Detection: 1914-S Lincoln Cent".  It is not about Chinese coinage but the techniques of counterfeit and their detection are the same.  http://www.ngccoin.com//news/viewarticle.aspx?NewsletterNewsArticleID=2671
3.  "Counterfeit China Chihli Year 34 (1908) L&M-465 Silver Dollar", http://www.ngccoin.com//news/viewarticle.aspx?NewsletterNewsArticleID=2675  Now that's scary!

Two interesting articles in the July 2014 NGC eNews:
1.  Peter Anthony's article on Chinese lunar coins, http://www.ngccoin.com//news/viewarticle.aspx?NewsletterNewsArticleID=2708
2.  Counterfeit detection.  Many of the counterfeits of US coins originated from China and the raised lines and bumps of this 1903-S Morgan are the telltale signs, http://www.ngccoin.com//news/viewarticle.aspx?NewsletterNewsArticleID=2710
