Nice to "meet" you.
I just wanted to introduce myself to the room. I am a newer collector, and I started my collecting journey in April 2020 during the COVID lockdown. Within a few months of my start, the "coin shortage" forced me to pivot my collecting strategy and I started buying graded coins. While it did not seem like it at the time, this was probably the best thing that could have happened to expedite my numismatic knowledge. My introductory goal was to establish a modified type set of US Coins using the Dansco 7070 as my model.
Today, my main focus is US half cents (but I am still working on the Type Set in the background). I am building a "major variety set"of half cents, but not trying to go full Cohen (yet). Early American Coppers are my favorite, because I love the history and finding nice examples can be a real challange.
My goals for the forums are:
1. To Learn
2. To Teach (although new, I have been able to pick-up some knowledge, and I am happy to share it)
3. To be with like-minded collectors who enjoy this great hobby.
Happy Halloween and I look forward to meeting and interacting with you.
