My U.S. Mint journeys have been short!
In 1979 I visted my first U.S. Mint. I had to go to Denver to learn how to be a retail sucess by running a Montgomery Wards Catalog Store (They went broke). While there I made a visit to the Mint. I wasn't into coin collecting very much and didn't come away very impressed! Maybe it was because they didn't give me anything FREE!
2003 my wife had to attend a conference in San Francisco. While she was in class I went looking for the Mint. I found it, it was a big old black boarded up building. Now I was into collecting coins, and was disapointed there wasn't anything to see.
On the way home, we stopped in Carson City and visited the Mint there. I fell in love, it is now the State of Nevada Museum. We toured the Mint and had a great time! Carson City also has a GREAT Railrod Museum. We made a second vist in 2004. Carson City is just like Disneyland you can't enjoy it in one day.
2006-S SAN FRANCISCO $1 OLD MINT, NGC PF-70 UC! When this coin came out I had to have it! The reverse is just great!
