Hi Bruce,

First off, I wish you the best of luck with your new site..

I am a coin collector, but I am a "Collector" only ... by that, I mean that I only collect coins and paper money.

I do not buy, sell, trade, etc.... I only collect them..

Several years ago I checked into a couple of "Coin Collector Clubs" in my area and all they want to do is sell, buy and trade .....

they had no "LOVE" for the old coins except as a money making game..

I am just the opposite, I collect coins because of their beauty and history, not how much they are worth.

My collection spans America's history from the early 1800's through today's new designs..

I started my collection as a child in the late 1940's and early 1950's... it now consist of several hundred American coins and paper currency .....

and my collection includes some foreign coins and currency that are no longer available except through collectors like myself..

The last time I had it appraised, it was not worth much, maybe twenty or thirty thousand, but I would not sell it for twenty million because I can remember most of those coins and where I found them..

Like the 1800's "Large Cent" coin from behind the old fireplace mantle in my first home when I remodeled the room ..

and the victory nickles and Indian pennies from the old folks who spent them in my store and restaurants..

Maybe one day we will get the chance to meet and I will show you my small collection.. [emoticon] [emoticon]

Again, best wishes with your web site..

TWO CENTS WORTH
The story goes that a man died and was approached by the Devil who told him that he could buy his soul back for a dollar. The man searched his pockets and could only come up with 98 cent. While begging the Devil to forget the two cent he was short, an Angel happened by and hearing the Devil laughing, asked the man, "Would you mind if I put in my two cents ?" The Devil got so mad that he exploded in a puff of smoke and the man's soul was saved.
The moral: Sometimes putting in your two cents worth makes a difference.
JOHN "the cook" 1997
