    Throughout the years I have picked up and put away old coins without really giving them a 2nd thought. But here recently I have decided to go through what I have accumulated and have gotten really intrested in wanting to learn more about US coins. I have tons of questions if anybody could spare some time. I have a few that I find interesting ones that certain details stand out from the rest. I've spent hours reading and looking and reading and looking would love some feed back and opinions from some more knowledgeable people

    you would have to
    (a) post clear pictures of the front and back, full images
    (b) tell us what you think or your question about it

    we hope that you've already bought a Red Book about US coins, if what you have is US coins.

    Are you able to easily post images of the coins like @Clawcoins suggested? Clear photos, shot close and parallel to the surface of the coin would be necessary for people to easily ID the coins for you.

    Well, you are at the right place to ask questions. Most of us old geezers have been fondling coins most of our lives. First thing I would do is double down on @Clawcoins suggestion. Run down to the store and pick up a Redbook. Anyone with even the smallest interest in coins needs one of those. They are cheap and easy to read. Post photos & questions at your leisure.

    Welcome to CT. Yes, on getting the Red Book, even a used one as the prices listed are out of date when it is printed. Keep reading and looking and as mentioned, post clear, correctly orientated, cropped photos of obverse and reverse, and then close ups of areas you have questions about. Good luck.
