It started when I was 8 years old and my father was going through his coin collection. I was fascinated with the age of his coins and the interest only intensified when I saw my Grandfather's collection.
Suffice it to say I was hooked and began looking through all the change I could find to see if I could find a wheatie, or any coin that was old enough to be silver. The passion cointinues today as I still search as though I was eight again. Harder to find yes but the fun remains.
