MY COLLECTING LIFE

Coins | Russ

About 1 and a half years ago I started to collect pennies. It started when I was at a thrift store and I saw a folder of squished pennies. Then I decided to move things up and collect cents. It started when I bought a 1941 to 1974 Whitman folder and hunted rolls from the bank as instructed. I got more and more serious about my collection and decided to get all Whitman penny albums. I have just gone to coin shows and shops and hunted from there.


EDIT: I am only missing the 1909sVDB 09s 11d 11s 12d 13s 14d s 23s 31s

Everyone starts with Lincoln cents, so you're in good company.

Don't worry those coins will be waiting for you. You should be proud. You can use my motto. Never give up. When I was putting a very old and rare collection. It took me five years they said it can't be done. Well I got thru it by never giving up!!

Congratulations, you have started a fun hobby that will last a lifetime. I started with Cents too, I think it is a very common way to enter our hobby.
