I've been collecting since 2007. I started by going to the grocery store with my grandparents and checking the Coinstar change return machine for rejected coins. After months of amassing many foreign currencies, I found a Mercury dime. I didn't think much of it until I saw the same coin on TV being worth a lot of money, and it made me realize how valuable these coins could be!
After my dad took me to my first coin shop experience, I was hooked! Since then, I've been buying and learning as much as possible about coins and currency.
I set up my first coin show in 2015 and have been buying and selling ever since!
My favorite coins to collect are Seated Liberty Half dollars, US large cents, and Ancient coins.
