We are pleased to announce that the entire series of The IBSCC Bulletin on Counterfeits has been incorporated into Forgerynetwork.com (http://www.forgerynetwork.com) with permission from the copyright holder.
Included are all the coins photographed, published and condemned by the IBSCC - the International Bureau of the Suppression of Counterfeit Coins. These all have been classed as 'Forgery - Published' as they have been condemned by a recognised institution and will be the first to be displayed in any search.
The database now contains almost 6000 records - 3000 of these being published counterfeits. The database is by far the largest public counterfeit coin database in the world and is now an essential tool. All purchases made should be checked against this database to help verify authenticity.
We wish to expand the database further and encourage participation, whether this be contributing items, commenting on contributions or sponsoring or making donations so we can incorporate more publised counterfeits.
