To CCF , Hey Christina you just landed on internets greatest coin forum .Hang on tight we're about to rock your world answering any question about coins that you may have . Let us grade some of your coins , just post us some photos , large and sharp of both sides .
It is a nice (usually) quiet hobby, but as you said there's a lot to learn. I've been doing this for well over 50 years, and I'm still learning all the time!
This forum is a great place to start, so spend some time looking at past topics that may be of interest to you. There are experts here in pretty much any area of numismatics to answer your questions. And don't forget to pick up a couple books - the RedBook is a great start for someone just getting into the hobby.
Greetings all I am a collector from Green Bay, WI. Looking forward to learning new things on this forum. I've been collecting coins on and off for past couple years but am now able to give more attention to it. Cheers!
