Bill Eckberg is the president of the Early American Coppers (EAC), a specialty club dedicated to the study and collecting of early U.S. copper cents and half cents.

CoinWeek editor Charles Morgan reached out to Bill in order to get his take on the state of the copper market, if there are slabbed copper coins that collectors should steer clear of, and whether the best possible collection of copper coins has been assembled yet.

You’ll enjoy this half hour back and forth with one of the most knowledgable copper coin experts in the United States… and if you follow his advice, you just might begin a lifelong journey collecting America’s most humble early coins.
