About Me

About Me:
I have been a coin collector since my uncle gave me a Whitman folder half full of Lincoln cents back in the late 1950s. A few years later and gave me a 1965 Washington quarter that was missing the reverse clad layer. He asked what I would do with it and I told him I would keep it. That coin still holds a special place in my collection. I try to spark an interest in numismatics "coin collecting" in all the kids that I can by gifting them a unique coin and a copy of a coin magazine.

Jefferson nickels, Winged Liberty dimes, Walking Liberty halves, Franklin halves, Morgan dollars, Peace dollars, U.S. Commemoratives - military theme
