Greetings all-
I joined the forum about a week ago, but have not gotten 'round to my introductory post until now. I stumbled into the world of coin and currency collecting following the discovery of some old coins and tokens in my late mother-in-law's house, as well as some old coins from my parents and an uncle on my mother's side (all deceased). I look forward to sharing pictures, etc. (when I've met those criteria) and learning as much as I can from my fellow members.
I'm an Air Force retiree since 2005 and live in the Omaha area where I work at Offutt AFB near Bellevue. My wife and I have two grown daughters, a son-in-law and three grandsons, and we're very proud of all of them. We also have some four-legged babies (bloodhound, black lab and a barn cat) that we enjoy spoiling as well.
Regarding the coins mentioned above, we discovered a couple that I'd never heard of or seen (1869 nickel trime, 1852 matron head large cent and 1858 flying eagle small cent) until I bought a Yeoman's Red Book and remembered them after comparing pictures my wife took with her phone to the pictures/illustrations in the guide. Like a true amateur, I thought the family might be sitting on a gold mine without realizing it, but after having the coins looked at by a couple of local shops, our collective expectations were dialed back a bit.
Anyway, I'm happy to be a new member and look forward to becoming more knowledgeable about coin collecting and numismatics in general.

Best regards,

AFVet1982

can't wait to see some of your coins and tokens. There are many knowledgeable people on this site, real pros. I am a learner myself and are I'm more of a modern day hunter/beginner numismatic myself but I love the hunt and the research but have yet to start any kind of true collection.
