Hey, all! It's been more than five years since I posted here. Crazy how quickly time passes us by! A reminder popped up in my social media feed, that nine years ago the design I made for the CCF token was becoming a reality. I remember participating in the contest and it was a privilege to help out.
Life got really busy, so unfortunately my numismatic hobby went on an unintentional pause. Before I became inactive, I was wrapping up the more affordable portions of a US Type collection, and had been making good progress on a one-from-every-country (OFEC) list.
My father passed away in March of this year, and while he wasn't as much of a coin collector as me, he did enjoy keeping up with the current issue US coins
for fun. He enjoyed talking about coins with his grandchildren (my kids).
My family vacationed to Colorado this summer, and I was able to visit the Money Museum in Colorado Springs. I'm glad we all got to see the Harry Bass gold collection before it's sale... that was quite the experience!
Obviously a lot more has happened since I was last here 5+ years ago, but I'll leave my life summary at that for now. I hope to find time to catch up around here! Not even sure who's still around that would remember me!
