<i>Elgin Coin Club
Newsletter</i>

The Elgin Coin Club publishes the Elgin Coin Club Newsletter once each month. The Newsletter is the informal mouthpiece of the Elgin Coin Club.(Click here to go directly to the latest newsletters.)

I am in the process of putting the 1994 to October, 1997 Newsletters online. To complete of the series, I decided to resurrect the archived files, convert the old WordPerfect files to PDFs. and place them online with the others. I will be doing this between October and November, 2014. When I am done you will have a complete run of the current version of the Elgin Coin Club Newsletters available here.

The conversion from WordPerfect to PDF is less than perfect. Most of the graphics are missing from the files though most text is there. Click here to see the recovered files. The December issue of each year has an index of stories for that year.
