Another Texas newbie coming in strong. I have always loved coins and grew up collecting wheat pennies with my mom. But just within the past 2 months have I really learned about coins. My 101 Grandmother showed my some old coins that her mom kept. I don't have those, but she did give me a bag of mercury dimes face value $8.70, and a 1887 coin. Now feeling special, I am hooked. I got a digital microscope but need that jewelry scale. THANK YOU for such a great forum!!! I can't wait to post some pictures to further my knowledge and hopefully make a good find For Real! God Bless and good hunting everyone.
