DIPPING A TOE INTO NEW WATERS...

Can Be Intimidating!

Every collector begins collecting a new series, at least once. As I approach uncharted waters, I feel the concern of making mistakes due to unfamiliarity, as well as the usual cautions related to adding new coins to my collection.

These questions race through my head:

-Is this a series for me?

-Do I really like these coins?

-Does their history/ reason for minting excite me?

-Are the coins readily available, and affordable to me?

-And on and on.

I am now experimenting with Indian Cents. Unlike many, I did not enter the hobby of collecting via PENNIES. So, after 50 years, I am giving them a try.

My way of DIPPING TOES in this series is to start by acquiring the copper nickel coins and the two S-Mints ('08 and '09). Creating my own mini-series to suit my interests/needs is my way of easing into a new collecting arena.

So, once I am ankle deep in the Indian Cent waters, I will decide whether further immersion is desirable.

Happy collecting and a very happy and prosperous New Year to all!
