NOVEMBER MEETING
Our November meeting included an interesting
presentation by Tony Swicer, numismatist, and Ray
Duclos, president/owner of Rechant Precious Metals.
Thanks to them, club members are now well-informed
about how NOT to get ripped off when buying or selling
precious metals and coins. Tony, who has served as the
president of the West Palm Beach Coin Club for 34 years
and who has vast experience in buying and selling coins
and paper money, warned of rampant scams and
counterfeiting in the coin market. Counterfeit coins and
jewelry that are being passed off as solid silver or gold are
often only plated with gold. Buyers who are not “in the
know” are at great risk of being conned. So, buyer beware!
Free copies of Tony’s “Misconceptions About Coin
Collecting and Consumer Awareness” will be available on
the “free table” during the January meeting.
Secretary Jan Smirnow thanked Mindy and Gary
Spiroch for the delicious refreshments they brought.
President Mindy Spiroch thanked Jim Sharp for
bringing the Mystery Item this month – a spinning top,
which stumped everyone. WTG, Jim!

We Remember James Wilhelm
Former GCTC member, James Wilhelm, 46, passed away at
his home on November 14, 2010. James, who served in Iraq
with the Naval reserves, endured grueling treatments in his fight
against lung cancer. He spent his last year and a half enjoying
his family and spending time out on the water. James was
buried with military honors on November 20th at Our Lady
Queen of Peace Cemetery in Royal Palm Beach. Our prayers
are with James’ family and friends during this difficult time.
