I Neglected to Mention...

| DaNumisMasta

Hi again! One thing I neglected to mention on my previous blog in which I focused about the 1652 Pine-tree Shilling, was how they were often punched with a hole at the top. This was mainly due to the fact that they were often worn around the neck to ward off evil spirits during the massive witch-hunts that predated 1720. I hate to publish another blog just for this tidbit of info, but I figure yall would rather know this interesting fact than not. Especially if your like @Stumpy and I and are history buffs ;)Anywho, thanks as always, and tell me some interesting coin facts in the comments. Stay healthy and safe!

Just a Little About Me

| DaNumisMasta

Hi all, I just wanted to take a sec and tell y'all a little bit about me, and how much I value numismatics and why.As you know, I go by NumisMaster, I am 16 years old, and I "specialize" in US coins generally succeeding the Flying Eagle Cent. I am currently going though my Penny/Cent fetish, but also have a huge addiction to silver and gold investments. I collect small note currency starting with the 1923 $2 bill, and keep my eyes open for anything from star notes to miss-alignment errors. I have a moderate foreign collection from my various international tours, during which I'll yoink some local currency. I started collecting about 4 years ago, and very quickly discovered the best hobby in the world. I have mainly grown my collection through wheeling and dealing at local pawnshops, and with my best friend who I introduced into coin collecting. He keeps me on my toes, driving me to always know slightly more about this hobby than him. (if it wasn't for this friendly rivalry I wouldn't be half the collector I am today). Outside of numismatics, I (surprisingly) have a decent social life, and do DJ gigs on the side. (I'm going to take a moment to insert a shameless plug to my SoundCloud profile: SoundCloud.com/ptdjghost). I enjoy writing novels, and am slightly addicted to playing Minecraft, and uploading it to YouTube. (Nerdy, I'm aware ;). I enjoy listening to 80's rock, and modern EDM music, and some 90's-10's alternative music.I went through a phase when I was an early teen where I had no idea who I was, and who I wanted to be. I had bad depression, and suffered through suicidal thoughts. I drowned myself in Numismatics, and eventually worked my way through it. Ever sense, I have cherished my collection, and value it about most everything else besides friends and family. Numismatics has allowed to learn things about life, such as finance, critical thinking, negotiating, social skills (hard to believe, I know), geography, and world studies; not to mention history.So that just about sums me up: a TOtaLly normal (sarcasm) teenager of the male species with the attention span of a potato. Anywho, thanks for sticking with me this far, and thanks again for the warm welcome into the ANA community.
