A recent cool find on bookstore day was a book on the discovery of Pluto. "Out of the Darkness, the Planet Pluto" by Clyde Tombaugh, the man who discovered this small body. There's plenty of photos and details...lots of details...The book contains photos of star fields covered with tiny points of light. Tombaugh studied these phots in detail to find movement, which would mean a new planet. And one day in 1930, he found Pluto. Pluto is no longer considered a planet, but its story is still fascinating. A recent space probe mapped this small body and its moons.
The tale of Tombaugh and his determination to find that one planet can be applied to numismatics. Study coins in detail. Check every bit of change that comes your way. Take out that magnifier and use it. And maybe one day, you will discover that special coin, that new double die, that rare variety, or something entirely new. You gotta keep on looking, night after night, and never give up!
