Strange Interests

Tokens | user_17552

I have always had a fascination with coins, tokens, and replicas. When I was a kid I had a Huge novelty penny that was almost big enough to be a coaster for a drink. And when I was a teen someone found a strange token when doing some yard work, and they gave it to me. Need to find out if I still have those somewhere. I have always collected little things, like wheat pennies, foreign coins I found at work (which I have a ton of, working in a college town for many years), and random old or 90% silver coins and two silver certificate Blue ink pre-war paper dollars. But with recent years, talking to my dear friend David Smock, and with the West Point Quarters emerging, I find myself now searching for them like crazy. I have been luck enough to find 22 Lowell fresh from the mint quarters, but still on the look out for the others that are out. And now my interests have grown to odder things. I am on the look out for a novelty coins. the Area 51 Alien 2004 Quarter.

This is the introduction of myself to this Association. I hope I am able to learn and contribute.

You know what? If we all talked about our journey to coin collecting, we would also be full of interesting things like Novelty Pennys and Cents in a Bottle and of course the famous Lincoln Cent with Kennedy's outline stamped in the field along with all the coincidences in their Presidencies. You have become a member of the greatest club in Numismatics, make sure your voice is heard. (:
