About Me

About Me:
I developed a passion for coins at very early age. I was just fascinated with any old coin. We were very poor so I couldn't afford to buy coins so I had to find them any way I could. I always asked grownups to let me look through their loose change to see if they had an old one. If they did I would ask them for it. It was usually a penny, nickel, dime or quarter so they would always let me have it. Got my first blue book at age 11 and have always searched and collected pocket change.
