Its been a while

Coins | Conan Barbarian

Its been a while since i last wrote a blog and a lot has happened since then. i got a few new coins (mostly silver quarter ranging in grades MS64-MS66 but also some Franklin and a couple MS66 wheat pennies) and expanding my collection in areas in which i am lacking (mostly silver coins). i also managed to sell all of my excess buffalo nickels which were either duplicates or undesirable. with that income i will hopefully find some great coins at the upcoming Whitman show in Baltimore and other local coin shows. i am also looking to buy more Dansco albums to store my better coins in and hoping to find discounted ones at the coin show or online and if anyone here knows of a website that has them for low prices i am open to options. Also i am about to move into a new house and spent the entire day yesterday packing up my collection into boxes ready to transport to the new house. i never realized until now how heavy a coin collection can get, all those hundreds and thousands of coins add up to quite a load. i hope to write more frequently in the coming months.
