Hi folks,

I'm from Berlin, Germany. I spotted your CCF a few days ago, as I decided to restart my collection of 50 States Quarters. It was just a link from German wikipedia that showed me the way ;-)
I have purchased a nearly complete set of 111 Quarters D+P on eBay for only about 80 Euro (~90 Dollars), the missing quarter is also on the way ... I'm waiting for delivery!
What do you think about the price? The coins are in the black and gold "Official Whitman Coin" - Fifty State - District of Columbia and Territorial Quarter Folder. Pictures of the coins inside are nice.

I don't know why but I can't resist this series... I startet it right from the beginning but was then soon "blown away" by the EURO introduction in 2002.

I have been collecting coins from "all over the world" since I was a child. Starting with stamps, I explored the "entire known world" - ending in wanting to know everything about Currency all over the World... coins and banknotes and the currency system used.

Let's say it quick and clear (that's a german slang!): I really love your currency!

There's nothing wrong with the Penny, the Nickel, the Dime and the Quarter. I love them. And the Half-Dollar is even more notable for us "Berliners",
when you remember Kennedy saying: "Ich bin ein Berliner"...

The "golden" Dollars - I don't know. I had some of the "Presidents" and "Natives" long time ago... not too convincing. Better use the banknote, the "greenback".

Another german saying is: "Koste es, was es wolle - Geld spielt keine Rolle!"

Enough german tongue, I hope you're all fine in this crazy times...
and I just wanted you to know, that there are (some) People here in Europe that just like you the way you are! ;-)

Dino

Thank you, jbuck, for putting me into the right place!

While waiting for my quarters to fly in, I'm refreshing my history lessons (American history was unfortunately not the main focus back then in school), so I work out one after the other state's history by browsing wikipedia. It's really fun so far!

I think my next project will be the ATB-series, again P+D.

Herzlichen willkommen auf der CCF Webseite! I'm going to start using this Redewendung. "Koste es, was es wolle - Geld spielt keine Rolle!"

I lived there for about 5.5 years from the summer of 1997 through early 2005 with a few pit stops in the USA during that time period...Berlin, Karlsruhe, Konstanz, Luneburg, Buch und Albruck im Schwarzwald....Halle...They were all nice...well maybe not Halle. I taught English there and worked in Irish pubs and gave guitar lessons/Englisch lessons to Kinder im Kindergarten. ...I had a great time doing so.

from England!

I visit Germany sometimes (not now due to COVID-19) as a destination speaker on cruise ships. A few years ago I visited Berlin on a shore excursion from the port of Warnemunde.

I like the 50 State Quarters and also the Euro coins! I am still looking for a 2002-G German 1c!

I am sure you will enjoy the Forum!

to CCF Dino.
My wife & I flew to Frankfurt to kick off our honeymoon last year. We hopped over to Prague, Budapest, Vienna, Salburg & back to Frankfurt. In 2013, an old university flatmate let me crash at his Leipzig apt for a few weeks so I got to spend a few days in Berlin (super cool city). He started a blog on Leipzig a few years back: https://lostinleipzig.com/ which is also beautiful (esp the Battle of Nations monument). It's a great city to bike or canoe in the canals (not to mention the beer gardens). We watched Germany win the world cup.

Anyway, I got hooked on snagging a few early Euro banknotes after my first trip to Europe in 2004. I started my slide down that World banknote slippery slope about 2 years ago & have never looked back. Last year I started a website on collecting world notes here: https://sites.google.com/view/notap...ng-banknotes

Good luck & happy hunting!
