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!
