How I started my coin collecting hobby. (I’m sorry for clogging the blog page)

This is the story of how I started coin collecting. When I was almost 7 I got a coin book from my friend. It was a national park quarter set. I started filling it in one by one before long I already had the present years. I decided to take a break from collecting and I found a new interest in collecting shells and Pokémon cards. Then one day I saw this video on YouTube talking about finding a coin worth $100 dollars. It was the 1909 s V.D.B. After a week I started to search my dad's old collection and searched up the values. That was until I found out that the websites I were on had fake information. So I asked my mom if I could have a coin book. And I decided to buy the red book. Once I got it I started reading it a lot. Then I started coin roll hunting. I tried hunting all coins but my favorite coin to hunt is cents. The first wheat Penny I found was in my mom’s wallet was a 1940 p. And I hunted 20 rolls in my whole life so far and I have 6 Wheat’s so far. And I also found lots of centennials. After that I couldn’t hunt because my mom said I could only go once a month. So I decided to find loose change around the house. Then one day I discovered the Young Numismatists club. So I joined. And on the first day I completed the dollar project. By the way I signed up on feb. 26 2021. And I wanted to share my finds right away. When Mike a Coin collector told me that instead of writing five posts a day I should write long posts. So I’m very sorry for clogging up the blog page. Please accept my apology. So far I’m having lots of fun doing activities and talking to other yn’s. So this is basically the story of how I started my coin collecting hobby.
