I don't really understand the attraction wheaties have for collectors. I have some, I collected them in my younger days, but like yourself, they seem to be everywhere. And I've known people who encase them in acrylic and make toilet seats out of them. So what's the big deal?
Almost all, but I'm approaching the abyss.
A piece of American coin history that's no longer minted. That's the only big deal for me. 99% of all the Wheaties I have are probably worth no more than face value. Meaning I'm collecting them not for profit or monetary values, but for more a personal reason.
As soon as I get a Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle in change at the local burger joint or ice cream place.....I'm cancelling my Heritage and GC accounts.
It could happen.
Robert Ransom great question. i always liked finding coins to go into my collection in pocket change and roll hunting. but when i hit a snag and cant seem to get lucky and find those 2 or 3 left before closing out a collection i will buy them. but it never fails, when i do buy the coins i need i always find them in the coming weeks. isn't that something......good luck brother
I began to collect US currency when I reached the age of about 15 years old.
