My dad passed away and left several boxes of his amateur coin/currancy collection. My oldest brother and I divided it up ( no one else was interested)and then promptly we both put it away in our closets--mine in Illinois and his in California. We kept talking about getting it out and maybe selling odds and ends of it--better than sitting away in the closet--besides we both could use the money. Well, I got mine out and started separating nickels from one cent pieces, etc and decided I needed a book to tell me what all this was--then somewhere in the boxes must have been that BUG--it bit me and now here I am! My husband is even looking at pennies, etc before he hands them over to grocery cashier, etc. We look at each other and laugh! My dad, I'm sure, is enjoying this! Well, I called my "Big brother" last night and we started talking and low and behold he's diving in head first researching this and that! I became frustrated with not knowing who I could ask about these pieces of history! I found you all--thank goodness!

Welcome Gussyboy1,

Sorry to hear about your Dad . But it was very cool he left you something special and even neater that you decided to not sell the collection but continue where he left off. I'm sure everyone here will help you as we have all been in your position at least once in our lives.
