The Gist of My Collection

Coins | user_79030

First things first. My collection isn't that amazing, but I love it. The history the coins have been through, the variety, and the coins in general. I just thought I'd share a quick description of my collection with you guys.
First on my list, the coins. (Yes, I also collect banknotes.) I have a lot of coins, but, the crowned jewel is definitely my collection of wheat cents. I am only missing a few, and I have around 750 extras that are already in my book. Some coins I am missing are the 1909-S VDB, the early "S" mint mark coins, and some others. I also like to collect older coins no longer minted, such as buffalo nickels, franklin and walking liberty halves, walking liberty quarters, liberty coins, barber coins, and others. I absolutely love collecting silver coins. (I would collect gold but I can't afford it. :( ) Some of my silver coins include: Washington and walking liberty quarters, franklin and walking liberty halves, barber dimes, random commemoratives, and some others. Speaking of commemoratives, I have a couple of them. There isn't really all that much to talk about there though. Another type of coin I collect is world coins. I have an entire 5 pound bag full of them. I have some from modern times, but my oldest one is from the 1920's. I love the ones with multiple colors. Around 10% of them are canadian, but some of them are from really really far away. That's all for the coin portion!
Next on my list, banknotes. (Told You ;) ) I like to collect world banknotes, too. I have an entire book and a half filled with them. My favorite is definitely the soccer commemorative from Russia. It is very cool. I also like to collect silver certificates. I have one from 1957, two from 1935, and one from 1934. (One of the 1935s is a star note.) I like to collect cool serial numbers as well. Since I don't come into contact with money very often, I don't have any of the good ones. (ie. ladders, repeaters, radars, etc.) I do have some mildly infuriating almost-binaries-but-actually-trinaries, and an almost perfect repeater. I also collect some forms of error. I have a one dollar bill that has extra print on it, and another that has one of the numbers on the serial number raised slightly. I also have one of every currently printed denomination just in case they stop being minted. Other than that, I mostly just have a bunch of miscellaneous $2 bills. And that wraps up the dollar bill portion.
This is the end of my blog post. Thank you for taking the time to read this! Bye!
