My son (11) is new to collecting and has started with a couple of coin folders ( LMC and NP quarters). He's gotten along pretty good with the LMC and decided he wanted to make a push to get one of the pages full. Awesome . I come home the other day to find out he had sweet talked mom into going to the credit union to "get pennies"- which he did!



About four hours later he had gone through them as well as an 11 year old can and came out with.....

4 wheat (all 50's)
3 Canadian (2 from the 60s, 1 from 2000)
13 '09 special backs

AND he completed 2 pages in his LMC folder

Nice work passing this along to the next generation (having an enabling spouse is pretty good too).

Good finds, and it is cool to have other collectors involved also. I am very happy for you and your son.

That is awesome. Congratulations to him.
My grandkids are 10 and 12. I've started sets for them but they just don't seem that into it.

Edited to say I have many extra wheats I could contribute and a lot of uncirculated memorials too.
