They may not be the best looking cents out there but I finished the pocket change book that I picked up 1959 -2009 (thumbsu

Sweet! Now you can just upgrade as you come across nicer examples. I got a real nice "D" bicentennial quarter back in change the other day, went to my Whitman's and yep, I had a new top dog. The old coin got down graded to the second string folders, and the old second went into the third set...... xD

All circulation finds. 

LoL  ya there are quite a few members that have the coin books. I think I saw a photo DW Lang and a couple of others posted of a whole book cases with 4 or 5 shelves of all coin books. I never thought about putting the books together when I was younger. I was always to busy. I just put the keepers in a jug and said when I get older I will maybe go through my change and see what I have. Well I made it I am older :preach: time to make the books

I have zero interest in coins, other than how much i can make off them, so books were never a thought, until i realized it'll be much easier to organize with a few books. I don't purchase coins, for other than face value, so all coin in my books are "circulation" finds. But the more modern ones are impaired proof only. I only started "collecting" about 2 years ago.

I do not consider talking about coins a hijack in any thread, I am also sorry collecting coins doesn't  make you happy. I just love finding oddities and picking up good deals on great coins for my collections. You seam to be well informed in numismatics. Do you just roll hunt or buy and sell coins also CJ?

My apologies for being so blunt. I do get joy from my finds, but it's not a hobby at all. Maybe when i have a little more time. I do not roll hunt and I've purchased only a few coins. I'm thinking of selling some of the stuff I've found on ebay, but the thought gives me ahgaduh, i think that's the word. And you could fill a thimble just under half way with my numismatic knowledge, but your comment just made my week, thank you, and probably ruined a few seasoned veteran's opinions of you, in the process, lol. Hope to see you around!

No need for apologies. I have always considered myself a no BS kind of guy and I like others to say what they think. Most of the regulars know my song so I don't think I have to worry about a reputation to protect. I am a roll hunter and I collect what I can afford to pick up cheap. Until I retired I always thought of myself as a coin saver and not a collector. I never had much extra money for anything with four girls to raise. Now that I have some time I am starting to become a bit of a collector.

And I admit that I am the anti-you. What you do is everything I stand against in this hobby. Heck, I even collect aluminum, zinc, and iron coins. Precious metals mean NOTHING to me.

How so? Examples, please. I'm not even in your hobby, so I'm a little confused. Or maybe it's you who is confused as to what i am, exactly? No need to be anti-me, lol. 

Polar opposite me? No prob. I meet A LOT of those, lol

It’s this that makes me the anti-you:

It’s not just that I am different from this. It’s that this really “urines me off”. This hobby has too many takers and not enough givers. And no, I am NOT of the school of thought that anything you wanna do is okay. You can find that all over here. Not me. It’s not, and I won’t pretend it is.

Hey man, don't blow a gasket! You must understand, I'm new to coin anything. I was basically forced into it. So while I'm here, I'm learning. I haven't made a dime off any coin, so cool your jets. You see what i post up, right? There are no half caf bust micro ribbon anything. It's modern quarters! You getting that worked up about me holding on to some modern quarters? What you got stacked up somewhere? I'm guessing quite a bit more than me. So... stones and glass houses don't mix well. Unless you don't have anything laying around, of course. 

Maybe you should be anti matter, instead of anti me, lol. Still luv ya, that'll never stop.

Laying around? Not s’much. Examined, attributed, and filed? Tons. Almost literally tons. Actually just shy of a ton.

That's amazing! Awesome for you! See how nice that feels? Being happy for someone? Oh man, does that feel good! 

And you really have a ton of coins? A ton? I think i have 4 kilos of found silver. And you hate me? Hate little old me? For 4 measly kilos, when you have a ton?! Come on man!

The look of these cents is very beautiful. Their size is also very good to keep in a pocket. Do you like writing?

Thanks Laurie, Welcome to the forum. I have a few books to complete. I finished this one and the state and park quarters. Now I am working on some Nickels for a change of pace 1962 to 1995 and 1996 to 2022 I am close on both. I think I need 5 in each book. It is a fun thing to do.

Would someone gave a moment to answer a question ? Im not sure if im even on the right section. I have a silver 1946 Jefferson nickel and its looks like no other I've seen.  Im not really sure if its worth checking into. It has been struck with a different pic in front and back. Thx for your time.

Welcome to the forum.

You're in the right section, start a new thread and post clear cropped images of both sides of the coin so that others can see what you are describing.

Nice JP.  Circulation collecting is a labor of love, and much trickier than buying the coins.  And.... you cannot beat the cost basis (face)!

Thanks Neo . It is nice to see a completed book.
