International Society of Antique Scale Collectors
Club Description

International Society of Antique Scale Collectors (ISASC) was founded in 1976 so that people who collect antique scales could form friendships, correspond, meet with each other and enhance the pleasures of collecting. ISASC members are located in the U.S., Canada, and a number of other countries around the world.
Yearly Club Activities
  1. Equilibrium - (a quarterly, illustrated publication) contains diverse historical, scientific, and general articles about scales, weights, and scale makers.
  2. An annual convention is held over a three-day weekend (with an optional fourth day) each Spring. The program includes, among other activities, lectures by meteorology experts, a silent auction, and field trips to prominent collections.
  3. The quarterly President's Newsletter contains news about the Society's activities and other matters of interest.
  4. Member services (some free, some for a nominal charge) include back issues of Equilibrium, periodic special articles, copies of old scale catalogs, out-of-print books, and a limited research service.
