My goals for the coming year

Coins | Moneda1793

Gotta love this hobby! Recently after obtaining some old and new coin catalogs( latest from Heritage,Stack Bowers,etc to back in the past , such as the mammoth catalog of the John Story Jenks collection by Henry Chapman, with copies of the plates!) , I've started to collect a Morgan for each year,starting with the less pricier ones. Conditions ranging from ExFine to MS 63. It appears that the Philadelphia and New Orleans mints put out the most Morgans in comparison to the San Francisco and Carson City mints. My target for next year will be the 1893 and 1895. Once that is completed, I'll move on to collecting the type set of Gold coins ,from the Dollar to the Double Eagle. Hopefully I'll complete that set in a couple of years. I hope everyone here gets to fulfill their goals for the coming year! Rick

My beginnings in the world of coin collecting

Coins-United States | Moneda1793

My father had a friend who owned a stationary store. I had a after school job there, basically sweeping and breaking down boxes. Being 11 ,it felt good to have some pocket change to buy comic books or accessories for my GI Joes. I was getting paid $10 to $15 a week. Lo and behold, in the back of the store he had a small coin shop. Looking through the case ,I was fascinated by the Large cent. No more comic books or GI Joe items for me! Most of my pay went for a Large cent. At that time I paid about $9 for a good condition common date Large cent (around 1969). As far as I can remember ,I have always been a collector,starting out with collecting and trading Batman cards for Green Hornet (Van Williams and Bruce Lee). Down to this day I've stay with collecting coins,basically Type sets, Indian head and Lincoln sets, and U.S.paper money (Large notes and Fractional currency). Always been a member of a coin club. I also collect Numismatic Literature (old and rare) as I have always had a love for books. Being retired , I have more time to spend in the greatest hobby of collecting and studying coins.
