IM BACK

| ClassicalNumismatist

Hey guy's it has been a bit since i have done anything. I think my last blog was a year ago! Jeez time flies. The world has changed a lot since i was last on. With the national protests, Covid, the November elections and the ensuing war between Armenia and Azerbaijan. I hope you all have been alright and i send my prayer's to you. I have had a large change in me going from the 7 year old with horrible grammar (Im sure i still have bad grammar) to the mighty but not really, 5th grader in boy scouts being all manly and stuff. I am starting to have a spark of wanting to get more serious about our beloved hobby. My family has had a large move from Kentucky to Georgia just north of Atlanta. I hope that i can come back into the hobby and connect more with my fellow coin collectors and be re-accepted into the community. I am planning of over the next 60 years of my life to make a collection of early American federal coins. My focus will be around 1792 to 1912 as i see that time as one of the greatest. I am fascinated with the architecture and mostly the lives of the rich people and aristocrats like the Vanderbilts. And i want to preserve the knowledge and history of the great artists, thinkers and buisnessmen of that time. And how they shaped the economy and culture of the country we all know and love today. I give my thanks out to all the mentors of me about the hobby of numismatics and for some the career. I hope you all have a nice holiday season and a happy new year. PS. No more excuses i will try to start posting as much as i can get myself to.

Welcome back. I go back and read comments . You learn from them. Yes the Gentleman from N.Jersey did sign the Declaration of Independence. The guy with the flag was supposed to have paid for it. But great blog welcome back.

Unfortunatly since he was a public servant and was working on the great seal along with some other dudes. He did not get payed by Congress for his work.

Thanks

ah, that is a beautiful coin! Happy to know you found that valuable tidbit of family history!

I did not think anyone would even care or remember that i existed. It's refreshing to know that you guys will still remember me after a year long break.

Welcome back! Hope to see more from you (I was a scout as well. Parents are saying ive got to get my eagle before I drive, so I guess ill be walking until I move out XD) Anywho, happy to see you post! Cheers, NM

Thank you for looking at my post! Ha that's funny but i believe that you could get the eagle but if you don't at least you will get some good exercise XD. I saw a story one where a kid got the eagle in his first year! Im not sure how that was possible but it worked. But anyway mate, thanks for stopping by.

Im going to try and join on my phone but i am not certain it will work

Mr. Nub I tried to join the Discord but messed up and can't join now. Life will go on though

Welcome back. I was a Scout as well. Great organization. You have a great goal in mind. I wish you luck. I like that it is a long term goal. Enjoy the ANA and keep learning about your family. Thanks.

Atlanta has a lot of great collectors, clubs, shows-you'll find it easy to connect there. Welcome back!

I have learned a lot over this break about my family. I learned that one of my distant relatives is Francis Hopkinson. He was a congress member who signed the Decleration of Independance and also contrary to popular belief he designed the first American flag not Betsy Ross. He also designed the first American coin the one with the big eye and rays of sun on the back.

I truly from the bottom of my heart (whatever that means, i will never know) thank you for being patient with me and being so nice to me.

Welcome back, I hope to see more of your posts soon. Since you recently moved close to Atlanta I suggest you join clubs in the area, MCCA (Atlanta) and Rockdale (Conyers) are two clubs that I am in, it would be nice to see you at meetings. I am also a scout in the Flint river council, cool to see other scouts here. Thanks for sharing
