Fun past few weeks.......

It has been a few weeks since I have joined this forum to start collecting coins with my kids.
They have enjoyed it a lot and I am hoping that it continues to grow.
I want to give a public shout out to three members of this forum that gave my kids a few coins to start off their collecting.
I want to thank all 3 of you for your generosity towards my kids. I greatly appreciate it and they greatly appreciate it as well.
It meant/means a lot to us.

We have been searching for coins more the past few weeks and came up with some finds.
We are finding more State Park Quarters and putting together a few penny collections including wheats, shields, and the pennies with Lincoln scenes on the back. They have enjoyed looking for all of those.
On top of that I was able to find an IKE Bicentennial Coin while at the store the other day as well as a 1940 wheat penny. Then on top of that I was able to find a $1 bill from 1993 with a Star on it and a couple of older Nickels.
I know they are pretty low end items but the time spent with the kids and the fun we have had talking about the stuff is definitely high end.
I think it will be a fun thing we have going on.

    Took an uncirculated Buffalo Nickel to my Grandaughter's Pre-School class. The teacher let me show it to all the children, and they got to hold it and pass it around.

    That was a totally satisfying experience for me. My Grand Daughter (17 now) still remembers it.

    It sounds like you are having more fun than most of us here.
    I think that means everything.
