I would first like to start off by showing how I can see both sides. For me being 16, adulthood is rapidly approaching, much sooner than some of my younger counterparts around the shops and shows. I would consider myself in the gray area of the two. I have the main resources, knowledge and abilities to keep up with ANs, to an extent, yet mainly I am still seen as a YN, which I do not mind. I have been given compliments on how my general and numismatic knowledge rival adults, which explains how a person should be less regarded on there age and more on their abilities. So I will tell a short story. So what I call my alternate dealer, he is a military collectibles seller and he also have a small display of US and foreign coinage. So me and @schepys_coins go by there and he wants to sell the dealer a few mid value coins. Everything he would sell would turn to be about $50 in value. But turns out, the dealer doesn't want to do business with @schepys_coins , he wants to do business with a parent there. Which doesn't seem that big of a deal, except for the fact that I have had multiple transactions with the dealer. I’ve sold coins to this dealer multiple times, and I am only 1 year older than @schepys_coins coins. So the question I ask myself, is the fact that I “appear” older than I am, make me gain approval, and my counterpart whom is actually less than a year younger, is not given the same consideration? That has always struck me funny. I’ve seen positive connotations of YNs and I have seen negative ones as well. Age has been a key judgment factor on literally everything. Are we considering YNs correctly in this hobby?
