People That Start Looking @ Pocket Change

Coins | SpartaCuse

Hello Everyone,

Just a little short story here.

Typically, we may not broadcast the fact that we are coin collectors, or even have a coin collection, possibly out of privacy or fear "something bad could happen" to us or or collections.

But, once in a while we make exceptions to our rules & we open up & talk about our hobby, our passion, our interest, & our love of coins - Soon you find out if someone else has the same sensation as your self or sometimes the other person has never even given it a second thought.

So, a person that I met about 2 years ago finally started getting some exposure to the idea of coin shows, clubs, & collecting about a year ago - We talk about general themes, how, where & why - If I happen to find something in my pocket change, I happen to mention it as an aside

Last night, while I was at work, I receive a text message, "Hey, I just went through 30 rolls of pennies & I found 13 wheat pennies" ! - I started laughing, I really did not think this person was becoming interested in looking at or even for coins.

Now, it doesn't sound like they found anything that would melt their brain & of course I told them that I would review all of them to make sure. but I guess my point is, you never know how far of an interest you can create for someone in their mind, just by casual introduction.

Anyway, have a great day everyone !

Wonderful to hear they caught the collecting bug. Great job!


Level 6

I have one friend that looks for coins. He watches our 2 dogs when we go to coin shows. He always has a modest want list for me so it works out great. Next show in March in Vegas!!

It is always nice to share the hobby with someone. Enjoy the hobby

That is the way to do it. I'm very happy for you and your friend. You brought back some memories. Thank you Mike.

That's nice! If your friend finds something scarce, that will really be encouraging.
