  1. AND I joined the Liberty Nickel Collectors Society.
  2. I just started searching for certified coins because that's all I trust when I'm buying online
  3. ALSO! I resubscribed to both CoinAGE and Coin World magazines and I now listen to the Coin World podcast. I follow those publications, CoinWeek, Heritage Auctions, and other places on Facebook. It's refreshing to have in my newsfeed.
  4. Oh, and I bought a tripod and macro lens with the intention of photographing my prized pieces. Haven't used them yet.
  5. Hey friends, Today marks the 14th anniversary of my membership on this great site! And it's my first visit since March 12th, so it took a global pandemic for me to finally not be on this site on a near-daily basis. My most recent post wondered what folks would do in regards to their collection if they were going to be home for a while... like in lockdown during a pandemic. Way back then (4 months ago that feels like eons), I think most of us were expecting 1-4 weeks home, not... 4 months and growing. Here's what I said I'd probably do: Ensure everything is properly sorted
  6. Hey folks, Let’s say you’re stuck at home for a week (or more) and you finally have time to focus on your coin collection. What’s on your to-do list? Mine: - Ensure everything is properly sorted - Set aside coins and notes I’d like to give away to neighborhood kids - Ensure the coins and notes I want to focus on are properly cataloged - Identify a better way to store the collection - Find a way to collect through online purchases since the coin show I expected to go to next week is cancelled
  7. My dad was USS Holder, DD-819. I believe it went off to Peru or Chile and eventually became a reef!
  8. My bank has the feature but they don't feature it (does that make sense?). There are a fair amount of services it has that it kind of buries. You may want to ask your bank to see if they have a recommendation or if they have it.
  9. Very cool coins, guys. I've never seen images of old Toronto. Please keep sharing.
  10. Trust your gut. Even if someone told you it was real, if you're looking at that coin 15 years from now and you still get the same feeling, then it's probably fake and/or not worthy of your collection.
  11. Art, It's a best practice for internet security to use something called Two Factor Authentication. One factor is your normal password to enter a site. The second factor is a code that only you should be able to see to enter on the website. The code can be sent to you a number of ways: text message, email, or on an app. The first two methods are less trustworthy since thieves are getting good at intercepting our emails and text messages for these numbers. Using an app is best. Some websites tell you to use Google Authenticator or other third-party (but trustworthy!) apps. Some tell you to
  12. I should've made it a New Year's resolution to spend more cash.
  13. I looooove Barber dimes. One of the three series I collect! I also looooove New Orleans mint marked coins.
  14. What's the story with the corroded food stamp token? What era?
  15. A few days late but happy new year, friends!
  16. I really really really really want one of those irradiated Mercs. Combines two of my biggest passions.
