Steve Albanese Passing

A very long time friend of over 50 years passed away recently.  His name is Steve Albanese and he was a member of our club. I don't know if his dues were up to date or not. I met Steve way back in 1968 when I joined our local coin club. I am member #163 and he was member #33. He was a few years older than me. As friends do we may not see each other for a couple years then reconnect. He was big into coin collecting of which he sold me some coins from time to time before we both got hit hard with the silver strike bug. Steve loved finding the varieties especially on the $7.00 strikes. Different weights and die varieties. The last few years he struggled with a number of health issues.  I am happy he is at peace finally, though I will sure miss our phone conversations.
I found out this news yesterday (12 Oct. 21), and I already miss my friend.

Four Queens Silver Strike Peeling Issue

To our Silver Strikers,

It is from Shaun Webster concerning the strikes that the decals are lifting


From Shaun Webster - Four Queens:

To Our Silver Strikers,

The June Tournament was a great Success and everyone seemed to have a great time.  It was so good to see everyone enjoy themselves.  As most of you know or have heard that the ink on some of the June 2021 coins is peeling off.  The Mint has been working to zero in on the cause and have narrowed it down to be the primer.  So for those of you that have June 2021 coins that the Ink is peeling we have a few options:

If you are coming to the Halloween release bring your coins and we will have the mint pick them and re-colorize them.  If not the Halloween release but you are coming to the January 2022 Tournament which will be on January 28th, 29th & 30th 2022 bring your coins if the ink is peeling.


Thank You,
Shaun Webster
