    I am curious what everyone's interests are on the forum in terms of coin collecting? It should be interested to see the wide range!

    I've bounced around a lot. Nowadays I mostly look at capped bust halves and German States coinage. I love thalers but I am mostly buying lower denomination pieces as they are more affordable and still interesting.

    Lately, Connecticut coppers and the Hibernia and Rosa Americana coinage. I do tend to jump around a bit sometimes though.

    Lincoln Cents (Wheat Reverse) are what I am into currently. Though, since I have got the key datoes I am beginning to gain an interest in other coins.

    I would double-like this collection if I could. I have never seen anything quite like it. The toning on some of these coins seems exceptional. (I say seems because...really...what the heck do I know?? Nuttin!). The deep ruby color on at least one of them. Wowzers! Thanks for sharing.

    I am a simple US type coin guy. I am particularly enamored with the seated series. I love gold type coins. And recently have become quite the collector of Byzantine Anonymous Folles.

    I have been doing some reading and research on the seated series coins. I am taking a liking to them!

    Take a look at some of the arrows and rays quarters and halves. They are common so they are affordable. But dang they make a fine looking type coin.

    I collect all AV coinage from 670BC to present. I try to only go after MS quality coins. So far 900+ coins from all 27 centuries of coinage.
    Some examples from my collection. 0b6cfca7b9a2b2b5ec1e62b36de2df6b.jpg 2de21746936dab357aaa770fea5e67b9.jpg 4a05d0f1195e34ccb796b3427292ec06.jpg 4f448c3300d29637d7e757d919eacbe1.jpg 8fe03fe9cbf509caca58cf215c26199b.jpg ffcf30270befdd070886ee8663afc32e.jpg 76bae2a18e9d1cbb4dc03db9b368d25e.jpg 00106q00.jpg 232_1.jpg 00196q00.jpg
