      Hey, I'm in Indian River, seen your forum, figured I'd get with you. I hunt rolls, occasionally I buy sets direct from the mint. I'm not big on bill collecting, but I do have a few.

    I started collecting coins when I was about 14 and my dad and I went to colorado and during our time there we visited the denver mint. He bought me the 18th edition photograde book by James F Ruddy and I just poured over its pages. I don't remember the exact time I started collecting but I do see this as the time I started getting "serious". Even before our trip to Colorado I remember falling in love with the Mercury dime. I don't know why,when, or how this happened or what drew me to it but something about it just called to me and to this day it is still my favorite coin. I've since branched out and now collect mainly the mercury dime, the peace dollar, and morgan dollar. As stated above my love and draw to the merc is why I collect it. The peace dollar on the other hand I collect because my grandpa had one with a hole through it that he wore around his dogtags during korea, to this day I still have those dogtags and coin. The Morgan dollar I collect for it's historical value. I'm a historican and like the mercury dime being a world war 2 symbol of sorts and a great 1920-1940 example, the Morgan dollar I love because it reminds me of the old west and saloons. What can I say, I just love history, especially the 1920s-40s (hence my mercs). (Some would even venture to say I was born in the wrong decade) I'm 23 now and a history major at FSU and still collect off and on when I can. People say that you shouldn't be into collecting for the money or investment, and for me that has always been true. I do it for the artistic beauty and history tied to my coins. Like history, coin collecting is one of those hobbies that just really spoke to me. I answered the call and have been a happy numismatist ever since.
