    I guess my beginnings are pretty much like everybody else. I spent a little bit of my childhood helping my Grandfather with his Lincoln Head penny collection. It was more just the fun of spending time with him than anything else. Looking through the dates adding them into the books, etc. When he passed, I inherited the collection. I half-heartedly added new coins over the years, almost sold it once, but for the most part, it just sat on a desk in a spare room.

    When the state quarter collection came out, I did that, got them all with a Philadelphia Mint mark. Again, it was half-hearted but felt accomplished that I found all of them in the wild.

    I am not new to “collecting” by any stretch. I have collected Citrus and Camellia plants for years, still, do. That is a long story for another time.
    Early 2019, I started looking at coins that were given back to me in change in a new way.
    The State Park Quarters mostly caught my eye. I didn’t even know they were a thing.

    Anyway, fast forward to today. I have the Lincoln Penny collection almost complete. There are lots of the earlier dates missing of course, but time will eventually fix that. I also have a really good start on a Jefferson Nickel Collection, a Roosevelt Dime Collection, and the aforementioned Parks Quarters. I am WAY behind on that one.

    I have been scouring the mint and eBay for proof and mint sets. Ordered the 2019 mint set. It is GORGEOUS! Been messing around with some uncirculated coins and dabbling here and there. So, to make a long story short, I am by NO MEANS anywhere close to an expert. I love reading anything I can get my hands on, including the 2020 Red Book.
    So please forgive any “stupid” questions that come from me, I am sure I have a hundred of them!

    ANNND Hello!
    That’s my story and I am sticking to it!
