Aberdeen girl’s coin collection worth a mint


Recommended Posts

Let's see ... a 1944 steel cent? Yes, they exist, but I'd be surprised if an 11-year-old could afford one.


A 1987 "silver penny"? Not quite, especially given that it appears to be about an inch and a half in diameter. Probably a bullion round or similar.


And finally, well, OK, if you want to be really strict about it a star note indicates an error, but not the way the average reader will interpret that phrase.


They shoulda sent someone other than their garden reporter to interview her.

Knueppel became interested in coin collecting through her uncle, who serves as the vice president of the American Numismatic Association. She regularly improves her collection by attending coin shows.



That certainly helps to have that kind of influence. Congrats to that young lady.
