Around the same time he began working there, he also started saving coins which had been freshly minted. I believe this is when he first began in numismatics. He saved several rolls of freshly minted 1909 V.D.B. Lincoln cents which were from the Philadelphia mint, being the closest mint to Ohio. The coin slabbed and pictured is one of those coins. Also, I gifted one of these coins to @lordmarcovan , who I promised to do this write up for. The next numismatic evidence of his collecting which I have, comes from 1913. Like in 1909 when he saved some of the first issue of Lincoln cents, he also saved some rolls of freshly minted 1913 buffalo nickels. I have some of these which he originally saved as well, of which the example below is one. After 1913, the next scrap of information I have about his numismatic interests comes from some more national currency from the bank, after the bank went through some changes and changed name and charter number. The new name of the bank was "The National City Bank and Trust Company of Marion Ohio" Charter #11831. Pictured below are some notes from the new national currency issue from that bank with his signature on them, including a couple Serial #1 Notes and an uncut sheet of currency.
