Every 6 months or so for the last 2 years we've attended the big coin show nearby, and the Lowcountry Coin Club really makes it so much fun for kids to get involved in the hobby of collecting coins. Our 8- and 5-year-olds get to grab a big honkin' handful of LWC from a bucket when we go, and now they're taking an interest in scrutinizing coins under their hand-held scopes. We always find a few 1950s RPMs in the bunch but this year they found a gem of a DDO in their bag!

Tropicalbats just put one of these up and the eye doubling is magnificent. This one is a nice specimen that my girls added to their growing collection of LWC varieties.
