Canadian blacksmith coppers on Facebook

A new Facebook group focusing on Canadian blacksmith coppers has been launched by U.S.-based collector John Lorenzo.

The group’s former Yahoo site is slated to lose its functionality and archive data this December, so Lorenzo is in the process of transferring the group’s research to the Facebook page.

“This venue is a better option,” said Lorenzo, who lives in New Jersey. “The main purpose of this site is to transfer and share knowledge in this series. I have no issue people advertising pieces for sale here at this site. Let all other Canadian coin group sites be aware of its existence.”

Photo albums for each Wood variety will be available alongside articles, auction updates and more.
