You know you're truly a coin nerd when...
...you cringe and feel forced to correct anyone who calls cents, "pennies" (US coinage.)
...you look for better stuff for your collection - in the collection plate at church!
...you willingly spend a Saturday night looking through a $25 bank-sealed box of circulated pennies (or is it pronounced, cents?!)
...you don't realize the increasingly angry stares from people as you carefully check for star notes when you get your change back in the line at McDonalds.
...a "trip to the bank" usually means you are not just going to the ATM for some quick cash.
(Feel free to come up with any/many more!!)
