searching multi decade circulation coins

Coins-United States | user_88263

I went through coins that had a silver dime and 12 wheat pennies and lots of red copper to collect the oldest coin was a 1936 wheat penny in very fine condition. The silver dime was a 1964 Denver dime. It took a long time to go through, but it was fun.

An Insight into the Life of a Dedicated Numismatist

| TheNumisMaster

Cheers, greetings, and salutations, my numismatic friends! Today I wanted to take a moment and share with you all (including the younger collectors) what my life looks like in relation to this hobby we share. This idea was inspired by a dear friend of mine who saw my collection for the first time and promptly asked me "How on EARTH do you have time to do ANYTHING besides coin collecting with a collection this huge?!?". So, today I will go over how I manage things, and my life story in numismatics.First off, I need to start from the beginning. The VERY beginning. I was adopted at birth, and given to two AMAZING parents. How does this relate to my journey in numismatics? Well, it has everything to do with it! Once I learned that my grandfathers on both sides collected coins, a spark ignited inside of me. I wanted to be like my adoptive grandfathers (one of which died before I could meet him) and was willing to give numismatics a try. My love for history soon made this spark glow brighter, and pure passion fanned it into a flame that led to an all-consuming drive to acquire more coins and more knowledge. This drive for knowledge made me learn things quicker than ever before, and I grew at a rapid pace. It shaped me into who I am, and taught me lessons that I have applied in nearly all aspects of life. One time, a history teacher at school used some faulty numismatic knowledge to prove a point for his lesson, and me, being the troublemaker I am, promptly corrected him. Of course, this resulted in me being hit over the head with a ruler, but the ruler split in half, not my head, so the teacher still has a job haha. I slowly climbed the ladder of progress in growing my collection, and made many mistakes that proved to teach me valuable lessons along the way. I made more friends, became more active, and soon came to the knowledge that I could accomplish ANYTHING if I was willing to work for it.Then high school happened. I got depressed, and my grades imploded. My parents blamed my obsession with coins, and thought that I was dedicating too much time to that, and not enough to my schooling. While this may have been true, I needed something to help me cope with my depression. Coins seemed to be almost like therapy to me, and I eventually overcame those feelings. My grades where too far gone to be saved, but I came back the next year with a much happier ending. Fastforwarding to the present, I have nearly straight A's, loads of friends (plus all of you guys!), an amazing girlfriend I wouldn't trade for a 1903 saint-gaudens double eagle, and an amazing coin collecting. I owe a large percentage of who I am to this hobby, and would like to think that both of my late grandfathers would be proud of the progress I have made, both in numismatics, and in personal progress. Thank you for reading, and I hope you enjoyed! Cheers, and happy holidays, NM

An Update

| TheNumisMaster

Hello everyone! I just wanted to inform you that due to the massive amounts of feedback on my 2003 quarter with the missing clad layer, I have decided to submit my coin to the NGC for attribution and grading! Thanks for helping me decide, and I anxiously await getting the results. My fingers are permanently crossed for that MS 66! It cost me a pretty penny (for a 16 y.o. lol) but I am sure that I will get quite the return on my investment! Wish me luck, and I will update you with results. Cheers, NM

coin show

Coin Shows | user_88263

I went to the Glenpool coin show today and yesterday. The oldest coin I bought was an 1859 Indian head penny with no shield on the reverse. My newest coin was a 1962 toned dime. I bought an au 1945 P au war nickel for a good price. That was my second coin show I ever went to. This is my first blog. Another coin I bought was a 1927 quarter for 18 times face.

The First Sparks of Numismatics

Coins-United States | CentSearcher

Happy thanksgiving everyone! I hope you had a great thanksgiving break, and plenty of new memories with your family. I was thinking about what my next topic will be for my weekly blog and with all the family history in mind right now it reminded me of how I started collecting. On both sides of the family I have grandparents who were devoted to the hobby, though I do not have much of a clear memory of them. I believe that most of the YNs out there were drawn in by a grandfathers collection, or I odd looking coin sitting in pocket change. These subtle encounters with coins plants a seed of interest into one's brain, that will continue to grow under the right circumstances. Today I'd like to take a look at how the "Hobby of Kings" came to being, as well as how I started it. Let's dive right in!
