BCCS Barber Halves Varieties Survey Online Submission
The BCCS is conducting a Varieties Survey for Barber Halves, to gain information as to the relative availability of different
varieties. The survey runs until April 30th, 2016 and
consists of five different parts, each corresponding to a particular type of variety. There is also a place to enter
unlisted varieties at the end of the survey form.
The form itself is below all of the instructions.
Simple instructions and hints
In the form below the instructions, please enter the number of coins of each variety that you have
in each grade in the appropriate boxes (no need to enter zero).
Because of the time that this survey might take (to examine all of your coins), you may want to do it in stages by filling out one section at a time.
Another approach is to print the paper form (click here and save/print) and use it to examine your collection (which could take some time), and when finished, enter the data from your paper form into this web form for easy submission (or mail it in).
Still another approach is to fill out an Excel spreadsheet at your leisure and email it to us.
Click here for the excel form. Save the file, fill it out at your leisure, and email it to us.
