I was wondering if anyone on here are US type coin and currency collectors and if so what "drives" you to this type of collecting? For me...I have been collecting at a very young age and I have collected with the two following principals:
1. It HAS to be genuine.
2. It HAS to be in the poorest condition; but not too much damage so you can't enjoy it.
So when it comes to coins...I would prefer a key date that is holed any day over an overpriced coin of the same key date; and when it comes to currency; the more tears (but it has to be intact!) the better.
I guess I have a passion for these types of coins and currency and I was just curious if anyone out there collects like me?
If not...well then good news for me I guess...less competition.
