Hi there. I've always really enjoyed US pennies and I have hoarded interesting coins ever since I was a small girl. My biggest coin regret was the US wheat penny collection that I lost moving to another province when I was 10. It had a collectors book too.to keep them in :( I spent a lot of time in the local library learning about them. I knew it was cool then. never got it back. And my most exciting find was a barely identifiable one pence coin from 1876 ish I'd dug up on the farm. I thought I'd found treasure. ( I was small. Still have it. ) I just really love the history the coins tell you.
