Hi all, I'm located about 10 minutes from Philly & have been collecting coins since my teens. One of my first purchases with newspaper route money was a 1909 BU VDB (this was WAY before the MS system) that I paid for in installments from a dealer in Merchantville, NJ. I also bought my first ancient coin from him as well, but had a better job by then & paid cash!
My interests include US, ancient & world coins, tokens & Mardi Gras doubloons. I'm now retired and even without working I STILL don't have enough time for all my hobbies, but that's a good dilemma! Glad to be here, Jerry
