My dad, Robert Matitia, bought for me the new Silver Proof baseball coin from the U.S. Mint, and they just came in the mail last week. It sure is a hot item and looks great! When we bought it from the mint it costs about $51, and now you can sell it for at least $150 since it sold out right away. It tripled in price! But I am going to save mine, and not sell it.

I was introduced to the numismatic community through friend and mentor Lee Minshull in May of last year. It all began when I purchased silver, ninety percent coins in as an investment but it sparked my interest in numismatics and coin collecting. From that day forward I have always been trying to better educate myself in numismatics. Being a young numismatist myself, I have found that there are many great resources to help further my education.

We see that silver has been used even in the earliest times as exhibited in the Old Testament when, in Genesis 23:15 Ephron tells Abraham that he will sell the Cave of Machpelah, which is currently in the modern city of Hebron, Israel, to him for 400 silver shekels.

YN Walter J. G. Waholek created, presented a display and did a talk on transit tokens last spring.
The exhibit included an operating Lionel Trolley and many traction models with historical traction artifacts along with exonumia. The display and talk is centered on the Philadelphia transit system from its infancy to present day.
