Each Early American Coppers Convention begins with what is called a "Happening".
Collectors specializing in large cents, half cents, and Colonial coins set up displays with a specific date and variety of a particular issue. Multiple examples are available for collectors to see and compare.
It is a great opportunity to see coins you might never see especially in such a quantity. See examples of these interesting early copper coins and hear from the participants as they share their excitement for this esoteric numismatic event.
