We highlight one of his videos each week in The E-Sylum.
Here's one from 2007 with Chuck Heck speaking about Early American Coppers.
Chuck is a recognized expert on the early copper coinage of the United States. He is a frequent lecturer at coin meetings and shows across America. Chuck's program includes a detailed history of the Colonial issues and early large and half cents. This lecture-with-slides includes:
examples of the pre-Federal issues of 1783-1791
the first issues to say "cent" and "e pluribus unum"
token issues including those later overstruck by the US government
the large cents of 1793 including the chain, wreath, and Liberty cap
an explanation and examples of the evolution of the Liberty design and the men who created them
design changes in 1808 and 1816
examples of proof only issues and their scarcity
half cents and their design changes and rarity
Speaker(s): Charles "Chuck" Heck.
Chuck rocks the orange FUN polo shirt, and he's been serving as the NBS Treasurer since 2019. He knows his coins and recently published a book on 1794 Large Cents. He provides a great overview of the entire colonial and early U.S. copper era. Early in the video numismatic literature dealer Fred Lake is seen taking photos.
