Edit - The Morgan Dollar avatar was temporary...the focus on the Nostalgia Collection is not.

I changed my avatar to a Morgan dollar and a good friend reached out and asked me if I was having a midlife crisis. Well, I am having a "collecting midlife crisis" in that I've decided to move away from colonials and focus more on my "Nostalgia Collection" - key dates and other coins I wanted when I was a kid.

I recently bought an 09-S VDB, and I have a three legged buffalo and an 1877 Three Cent Nickel. I just bought another key date for my Nostalgia Collection. I haven't received it yet, but I'll post a thread about it when I do. I'm having a lot of fun buying these coins and being a kid again.

Anyway, the Morgan dollar in my avatar is my 1878-CC. Not a key date, but one that represents the 1878-CC Morgan dollar my grandmother gave me when I was about ten years old. It's the coin that got me interested and made me a collector.
