    I ran across this site while searching for some info about Jimmy Gerstel, a coin dealer I surfed across on television the other day.

    I've been collecting, on and off, for about 13 years after ordering the 1995 Special Olympics World Games Dollar from the mint. I was coordinator of our county's Special Olympics group at the time. Since then, I've gathered some interesting coins, to me, anyway and the forum seemed like a great place to learn more about those coins, so here I am. I figured, if the collection keeps growing, by the time our grandson, now 7, is old enough for college, he might be able to afford a semester or two. :)

    I'm glad to be here and looking forward to paticipating in the forum.

    Thanks for the welcome y'all. I've been going through the forum and saw collectors from around the world too. That's great, because I've managed to gather a few foreign coins from my time in the Navy, and by accident too. My latest one was a Costa Rican 5 Colones I found laying on a gas pump a couple months ago. Surprises like that make me wish coins could talk. I know they'd have some interesting stories to tell.
