Sorry, I'm new, I've never been in a gang before. I just joined the ANA, and so inherited the NGC affiliation, I guess.
I had some coins from other countries, but I never really took interest in them. Then one day my Dad gave me a 1912 German 10 Piece. After that I really took. Interest in it. I look at my collection again and saw that I had coins from Canada, Chile, Brazil, El Salvador and so on. Then I went to my local Flea market and bought some more Over time my collection has grown.
