New to this discussion forum, but by no means new to discussion forums. I am a Canadian coin collector, with specialization in gem condition small cents and business strike nickel dollars. I also collect varieties and errors within those two series. I have published papers on coin errors and Canadian coins in the Royal Canadian Numismatic Association journal and have been a contributor to the Charlton Standard Catalogue of Canadian Coins for a few years now. I always enjoy helping new collectors but even with years of experience, I find discussion forums like this always provide opportunities to learn something new.
