Sitting here awkwardly, as it's all come this. When I hit submit, this will be my 1000th post.

My journey began in 2015. I wanted to get back into the hobby, but also wanted to sell some stuff to kickstart getting back into the hobby. I needed some knowledge and stumbled across the Coin Community. I think I've browsed the topics everyday since. In the fall of 2015, I'd never previously been on a board where I had posted more than a few dozen times. Not sure how I got to 1000, but I guess it means this is a pretty special place.

In 2015, I hadn't sired any offspring yet. That changed in 2017. This morning, my toddler and I wandered into a shop as a way to breakup a long morning drive to northern Utah. We are working on a date set of V nickels together. When it's done, this set will include 5 generations of procured specimens in the set. When we got to the shop's Nickel display, her attention was immediately grabbed by a pretty old gold foiled 1897. She liked the gold. I'm not sure if one of these dates other than 1883 no-cents counts a true racketeer V, but it was pretty and who am I to say no to my lil collector?

I got married earlier in 2015, few months before I joined the Community. My wife has slowly given me a name with great affection, Numisnerd. I've earned it.

The core of my set remains the same, I'm a sucker for an '82. But with the support and knowledge you all have so kindly shared, I've branched out a little bit. I've started a Buffalo and Thai type set. The thrill of the hunt has only grown since 2015. And after we've finished the V nickels, we have sets of Mercury dimes, Franklin halves, and Morgan dollars started by my grandfather to finish up. I hope to be here a long while!

So again, thank you to everyone. Especially Bobby and the moderators who have cultivated and maintained such an incredible website for us Numisnerds.

My hoard of '82s is up to 223! 218 BC x 1, 118 BC x 3, 18 BC x 1, 82 x 1, 182 x 1, 282 x 2, 382 x 1, 582 x 2, 682 x 1, 782 x 2, 882 x 1, 982 x 4, 1082 x 1 1182 x 8, 1282 x 2, 1382 x 1, 1482 x 5, 1582 x 13, 1682 x 16, 1782 x 58, 1882 x 62, 1982 x 37
