Amazing Birthday Present :)

Young Numismatists Exchange | ZanzibarCoins

I just recently turned sixteen, and I was surprised to open a card from someone, and discover... a beautiful, beautiful, red, mint state, 1909 S VDB 1 cent!!! And not only is that a hard coin to find, especially in that condition, but also, my dad and I are working to fill his grandfather's old penny books, and that is one of the last ones that we need! So now we get to add a real 1909 S VDB cent to our collection! It was a totally surprise, and super, super nice! What an awesome birthday present! :)Short blog post, I know, but I wanted to take a few minutes and check back with y'all before I turn to helping bake our Thanksgiving dinner. :) Have a happy Thanksgiving!!! :)
