New Member From Michigan

Greetings
After way to many years of lurking I finally decided to join. Like many in our hobby I'm on the downhill side of collecting having started with Lincolns from circulation in the 1950's.

My collecting focus for the past 20 years or so has been US and Canadian cents, US half cents and two cent pieces. Currently I am focusing on Michigan Civil War Store cards and cent Sample Slabs.

Retired after two terms on the MSNS Board and I am the current President of my local club.

I don't expect that I will post very often, but I try to visit and read posts every day.

    Just bought my Life Membership. If grandson keeps going with his collecting I'll buy him a life membership as well. I signed him up as a YN at age four. This was on the cover of the Michamist some time back.
