Early American Coppers Convention

Colorado Springs, Colorado

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 1,200 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.

  1. David: I just watched your EAC video and it’s interesting. But of all the questions you asked, you didn’t ask THE most intriguing and important numismatic question which would have elicited the most intriguing answers: namely why are so many early coppers “raw” and not in slabs? This was most apparent with the 1794 head of 1793’s being discussed on camera with Denis Loring. Of the dozen or so flat on the table, I think I counted only 1-2 in slabs – which is most unusual for today’s numismatic hobby – raw coins. But not unusual in the early copper field. You would have elicited some fascinating explanations.
