Announcing the Seated Half Society
A new club for the collectors of Liberty Seated half dollars, under the umbrella of the Liberty Seated Collectors Club. There is an SHS Webpage here on the LSCC website, and a quarterly SHS Newsletter 'in the E-Gobrecht starting in November. No Dues! Volunteering to start the club will be SHS President Dennis Fortier and SHS Vice President Dr. Verne Pitman. Membership in the SHS is earned not granted.
