More than a few years ago, I would have felt the same, but trust me brother......whatever it is that you treasure in your collection is up there with gold. If you love it, it belongs posted here.....
Jealous as the devil......
Depends on which side of the fence you sit on.......
Go ahead and post. A coin doesn't need to be rare, expensive or high grade to be appreciated. I bet I'll like what you've got.
But, this is my favorite coin in my humble collection.
Thank you gentleman.
Here's a couple of my favs (all raw):
I see you posted a couple of coins already. Good!
I just wanted to mention for you and anyone else reading that not all the coins in this thread are rare or expensive! I mean, I posted a 1963-D dime! Granted, it's not your average 1962-D dime, but it's a coin you can aspire to on a $25/week budget. And there are collecting areas where you can get incredibly rare, eye appealing pieces for peanuts relative to your typical US coin series.
Edit: 1962-D, not 1963-D. Sometimes I don't remember the dates of my coins.... #TypeCollectorProblems.
Thank you Paul and the rest of you fine folks that encouraged me to join the party. It's quite daunting seeing pictures of coins that quite frankly could grace the archives of the Smithsonian. Again, I'm truly humbled but glad I changed course and joined the fray.
Awwe heck man.Every one of them are historic and have a story to tell. I just love looking at coins. I don't care if it is a worn slick V-nickel or a proof Morgan. I love em all.
I totally agree. The difference being, each coin has a different story. Some of the stories behind the coins I'm referencing have stories that define history and movies are made from. Truly awe inspiring.
I'm not as young as you might think. Or at least my grandson would say I'm old. I just accumulated over the course of the last 50 years. Not so much a collector.
What are your priorities? That's where you'll spend your money. Do you desire a $7000 Bust Half from 1815/2 like me, or would you rather spend that on something else?
Excellent points. My priorities have always been saving for retirement. Never any extravagancies (cars, travel, boozing, jewelry, clothing, etc). Our accumulation of coins and such only amount to about 2-3% of our portfolio.

I purchased this shortly after turning 21.
A person once told me.... You can have a good time as a young man... Or you can have a good time as an old man. I chose to have my good time as a young man. So I'll be burning the midnight oil for some time to come!! You are a wise man.
