Hi, I'm Mike, and I'm a hoarder. I mean collector! :)

 

I collect:

 

Early US coins (Large cents, 2 cents, 3 cents, Morgans)

Modern US coins (Buffalo and Jefferson nickels)

Error coins (from anywhere)

Ancients (Greek, Roman...I'm kind of an expert on the Coinage of Roman Emperor Elagabalus)

Russian coins (Empire and early Pre-Soviet and Soviet)

 

I also collect:

Casino chips and gaming tokens

Chambermaid candlesticks

Horror movie lobby cards

 

I have 4 cats, so I guess I collect those

 

Oh...

 

And Credit Card Debt! I have a bunch of that! :)

Hi, I'm Robert. I collect many different things, but old coins are always priority 1 for me. I started when I was seven years old with a 1941 GB farthing. Needless to say, my favorites are the English. Late hammered through some Victoria. I also collect Scandinavian ( esp. Charles XII and Ulrika Elenorae [?] ), any decent European crowns pre 1830. I have always gotten a kick out of non collectors.reactions to , say, a 1680 european minor. They can't wrap there mind around the time difference. I love the history and handling a piece of that. Not to mention they knew how to mint some beautiful coins .

Whew. Thanks for having me.
