COUNTERFEIT COIN BULLETIN

The Bulletin of the International Bureau for the Suppression of Counterfeit Coins (IBSCC) was issued only to International Association Professional Numismatists (IAPN) members, a dealers only organization.

Illustrated Paperbacks with high quality, enlarged photos of genuine coins and the fakes that imitate them.

The Original quarterly publication is now published 3 times per year since 2000 in collaboration with the American Numismatic Association (ANA)

It would be nice if ANA would consider selling individual reports, since most collectors have a limited focus on these rare counterfeited coins. If any CCB subscriber has such reports which he/she does not need that match my Ceylon/Lanka/colonial south-Asian coin needs I am very interested in buying them. Please send me E-mail.

I give below a partial index of the First 9 Volumes of the IBSCC report published by IAPN form 1976 to 1984. I hope ANA will consider publishing a complete Index to this publication so that even if collectors don't have it online they will know a report exists on that particular coin they are just about to invest a fortune,
