An interesting chance to learn about errors?



Ben went to the museum with my wife today and operated the penny press himself.


Expert press operator that he is, apparently something went slightly wrong. 


Even so, I think it's fair to say that he was happy with the results.


Making pre-schoolers happy and making a collector can be quite cheap and easy - $5 for the album and $0.51 every time he gets a coin to put in it.

He wants to take that album with him whenever he goes to the zoo or the museum now. Sometimes other places too. He just wants it with him because he loves it.

So, Ben has his first error and he made it himself!  How cool is that?!  I don't think you have to worry much about Ben's future as a collector anymore......I think he definitely has the collecting bug.  It's great that he loves his album so much that he wants to take it with him when he goes somewhere and you can see in the photos how much he really loves it.  Very cool.....the future of the hobby is a little safer now.  It'll be interesting to see how things go with Sam in a few years as well.

Very well said, Coinbuf.  The small joys are often the best ones.
