Might I suggest buying some coin reference guides like the 2010 Red Book, or A Guide Book Of Lincoln Cents.
They can be bought here.
These are good books to read, and should help your son
Congrats on your son's new found passion for collecting
Yeah,he'll have his own album.I just have to make sure he keeps his grubby little fingers out of mine!
The book that is the bible of the series is by David Lange,
The Complete Guide to Lincoln Cents......available everywhere:smile
I appreciate the advice about the books.I guess I should clarify that I was posting that my son is the new collector. I'm fairly new on this board and I do have my own Lincoln collection thats about 95% complete and I do have the book you mentioned.I was just happy that now me and him have something else to do together.
Send me a PM with your address and I will send him some BU Lincolns for free!! Got to get them addicted young.
do not forget the pocket change they do show up every now and then.
By the way it is great you and your son working together.'
im now 51 anf my dad is 92 , but at the time it was not coins , it was building muscle cards and street rods.
Presently his mind his good and we talk and laugh about being together
THERE IS NO BETTER FEELING THAN THAT
by the way welcome to the forumn :thumb:
That is great to hear! Tell him he did well on his first purchase and to have spent his own allowance money too! He will definitely respect the coins more in the future i think.
Glad you found a hobby you can share together:high5:
Dang. Just taking a break from "Honey~do" stuff. Was reading a post somewhere here about "The 1st ones free" and now i read this!!!!
Next he'll need a container so he can to stick it into proper formation!:bigeyes:
Another thing is to check out the Walmart Web site for books. They usually sell for a lot less than almost anyone on the internet.
If your son is into computers also try www.coppercoins.com And the person that has that web site has two books out on just Lincoln Cents and you can usually buy coins and books there also.
Not sure if you have any flea markets in your area but around here there are always coin dealers at our flea markets and no where on Earth can prices be better than what I've found at flea markets and garage/yard/estate sales.
I guess lots of people start with those Steel Cents. One dealer at a local flea market told me he sells lots and lots of them every week. Usually he wants $0.25 for almost Uncirc ones. He tried for $0.50 but no takers. He usually has hundreds of the well shot looking ones for about a dime. Less if you buy lots of them.
Look at this saint! :thumb:
