Introduce myself - new poster- 3 Cn Nickel
I wanted to say that I am a long time reader but new poster to the threads. I have learned an incredible amount about the hobby by reading the boards and the wealth of knowledge that exists here. My wife and I both love the hobby although she loves the currency side where as I am in love with the coins.
I am a novice with regards to this hobby but try to learn more with each passing day. We have built to date a few nice sets and before we start a set try to research as much as possible about the set, and of course I co e here and try to find various threads on the sets if they exist so I can understand what obstacles the set presents or challenges with certain dates. The latest set we decided to build happened as we were on a trip and saw in an antique store this old battered 1867 3cn nickel. We started reading about the coins and we decided that would be a nice set to sink our teeth in. I have noticed that the 1876 and the 1885 seem to be difficult to acquire and do not come up for auction in an MS grade often. Are any of the fellow board
Members knowledgeable with the 3 cn nickel and can offer any insight regarding that coin?
I wanted to just take this opportunity to say hello to all of my fellow hobbyists and I am being very sincere when I say thank you for the wealth of knowledge you bring and share on this forum.
I recently acquired this coin for the 3cn nickel date set we are building, I thought I would share it with you as a way to say hello.
