Becoming Active once more!

| Big Nub Numismatics

Hello Once again everyone!It has been quite some time, but I am glad to be back for (hopefully) good. School had me burned out from writing - and to be honest - I really had nothing to write about. everything I could think of was just a repeat of what I, or others had already written.
A little about what has gone on for me while I was away.I graduated a year early from high school with 2 years of my bachelors in Physics from my local university to focus on coins. I was able to get a job at Eagle's Nest Numismatics in Toledo, Ohio and have been working full time for the last 4 months. I won the Q. David Bowers Literary award from the ANA, and I have been enjoying life a lot more not stressing out about each little assignment from 8 different classes.Along with working at a coin shop, I have also been buying and selling enough coins to live with my coin addiction comfortably. I travel almost every weekend to a show, local or regional. If you are ever at a show in the midwest - I'm usually there.
At the moment, I am currently working on a large research project on Russian Coinage under Catherine II ( pronounced Yekaterina in Russian). I will be publishing extremely detailed articles on 5 and 10 kopyex coinage. If you have ever wanted to know more about these coins, you are lucky to find anything other than the years they were struck, and sometimes the mintages, but even then half the coins have unknown mintages.I hope to have a comprehensive guide at the end, as well as putting my finding on my website and here.
Get ready for some huge coins!PS: Sorry to all those that sent messages to me through my absence. I will be checking here at least once a day now.

Welcome back BigNub ! It’s good to hear that you’re doing well! I don’t make it out to the Midwest, but I’m sure that your store has an “online” presence. That’s quite an interesting project you’re working on. Thanks for sharing and congrats on finishing your course work!

Glad your back with us again. Wish I could attend some midwest coin shows. But I am in Pennsylvania. Nice being in the coin business. Sure does satisfy the appetite for collecting.
