I have a coin collection but have not looked at it in years now. My grandfather gave my sister and I some coins and bills he had collected during World War II. I then started doing a little collecting on my own. It is fun to look for a particular coin and see if you can get it for a good price when you find what you are looking for.
We have some coins, not anything much, just some foreign coins, state quarters, bicentennial coins, and a couple of Sacajewea dollars. Oh, I did get a Mercury dime in change the other day. It's worth about $4-$6, so I guess I'll hold onto it for a while longer.
My husband's grandfather used to buy the real collector coins, but I think they got "liquidated" when he passed away. :shake:
