Hey everyone, today I wanted to discuss how important it can be to become connected to other coin collectors. First of all, becoming acquainted with local dealers can allow for loads of helpful advice and (sometimes) small discounts for the younger collectors. Not only that, but these dealers are almost always more trustworthy than online sellers who are often looking to scam buyers with low skill or knowledge. Interaction at coin clubs can also be very helpful, as members can trade coins and information between each other, as well as possibly finding great friends. Overall, the coin collector who fails to take advantage of local numismatists misses out on so much opportunity for enrichment in the diverse world of coin collecting.
