My interest in coins began in the mid to late 1960's. That's when I started to collect Lincoln cents and look for different dates. Around that time my parents gave me 5 Peace dollars that my god parents gave at my baptism. My parents held on to them until they thought I was responsible enough to have them. To make a long story short I thought that I had a brilliant plan to make them look shiny again. So, I used the eraser on my pencil to rub off the toning. The best date in the group was a 1928. As I became more educated I realized what I had done. Yes, I still have them.
