Welcome to the website of the Liberty Seated Collectors Club. The Liberty Seated Collectors Club is a not-for-profit group of over six hundred collectors and dealers dedicated to the study and attribution of the American silver Liberty Seated coinage of the 19th century. Social interactions at a host of regional meeting venues throughout the United States are a key element of the "LSCC Experience."

Please browse our website for news, upcoming events, educational programs, resources for collectors, and membership information. See for yourself why the LSCC is the best investment in numismatics.

Please note that due to the Coronavirus, a number of the coin shows in the schedule are likely to be cancelled. We will post updates as we get them. We recommend that you verify any event is going to be held before traveling to the show, until further notice.

2020 LSCC Annual Meeting via Zoom - Thursday August 13

We will have the LSCC Annual Meeting on Zoom August 13th at 9:00 p.m. EDT here in the U.S. Zoom is a cloud-based video communications app to set up and participate in virtual video and audio conferencing for online meetings with screen-sharing. You do not need an account to attend a Zoom meeting, and the platform is compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android, meaning nearly anyone can access it. You may participate via Zoom at https://wustl.zoom.us/j/5086565637.

We'll be on the line a half hour early, in case anyone wishes to verify their connection. We'll follow our usual Annual Meeting format with opening remarks, introductions, club business, and award presentations. The meeting will close with an educational program. Garrett Ziss will present an interesting program entitled, Libery Seated Coin Images on Obsolete Paper Money.

Note for conference call participation: For those who wish to participate via conference call instead of Zoom, please use the above URL just prior to the call, and select "phone call." The dial-in number, conference code, and user ID will be supplied to you.
