Tell us a little about yourself or what and why you collect. You can post question here also.

Hello from Denver

#1 Unread post by Greyhound » Wed Dec 11, 2019 11:45 pm

New member Greyhound here. I started out purchasing some gold and silver bullion coins, then got interested in some other collectible coins- just because I like their looks or the history behind them. For example, I read a book called "The Bonanza King" that told the story of John W. Mackay, an Irish immigrant who went from rags to riches on the Comstock Lode. That got me interested in the Carson City mint, and I recently bought a 1883 CC Morgan as a result. I'll never be a hardcore collector, but I'll continue buying coins that interest me.

I'm an IT guy in the Denver area and also have been involved in greyhound adoption for many years, hence my user name. When commenting on videos on YouTube, I'm known as No Remorse.
