Hello, my name is Charles. Wanting to become more active in the numismatic community.
Collecting interests: Naturally, I love a good Morgan Dollar, recently I have become entranced with the extradited die varieties of early coppers. Just finished a Peace dollar set which was exciting for me all AU to BU+. Currently working on a Barber half set and a capped bust set. Barber set is raw, capped bust will be graded.
I have been collecting steady for about 5 years. The more I participate in this hobby the more I learn about how much I don't know. Its interesting because I think I still have just as many questions today as I do when I started. I love the history of this hobby learning about varieties and the die process.
Not sure what else to say, I have 4 favorite coins would be. Draped bust half cents, Morgan dollars, peace dollars, capped bust halves.

Welcome Charles, I have seen the opportunity to Cherry Pick Morgan dollars, things were looking up until Covid, knew the silver prices was going up. Hope this hasn't effected you collecting too much. Again, Welcome.

Fun interests and welcome!


Level 6

Welcome. You will never stop learning here. I too am a Peace Dollar nerd. Enjoy!


Level 5

You make an excellent point, "The more you put into it the more you will get out of it." Then as you discover that you're just scratching the surface, you redouble your efforts to learn more. (Your story reminds me of me)! Thus it comes to me as no surprise that you found your way here. Certainly, you have come to the right place when it comes to numismatics! Welcome to the ANA! BTW, I collect gem-quality (MS-65 and up) Morgan Dollars and GSA holders.
