Hello! I’ve been a collector of coins and currency for a long time but would love to know more about the hobby we all share. I look forward to “meeting” you all!

I’d like to apologize for the late response! Been a hectic month. I’ve always loved the history associated with coins and what they represent. Right now I’m really getting into European Silver Crowns. I’m starting small but I have high hopes for the future. I’d really appreciate anyone’s input as far as things to look for or educational materials. I promise I won’t take so long to respond this time lol

This is a 1821 Crown I picked up and it’s what got me hooked. The image of St George slaying the dragon is simply awesome.

Thanks for the advice! I’m trying to be careful and only deal with trustworthy dealers like yourself. Unfortunately honest and straightforward people are not as common as they should be.
