Hello from Western New York
I live on the Great Lakes near Buffalo (land of snow) and have just joined about 2 weeks ago. I collect VG-7 to VG10 grade Liberty Cap large cents by variety. I put a few pictures in my profile album. Please let me know if they didn't show up there. I've only been at it for a little while so only have a small set but they are all choice, which is nice. Of course when looking for this series and limiting yourself to choice coins it's bound to be slow going. I also know that I will never see many of the varieties, all of which is fine with me. I figure about 30-40 coins long term. Good thing that I am a patient person.
I did buy one coin on ebay a while back, but have found that most of those coins are overpriced and in poor condition, recycled over and over waiting for one inexperienced buyer. There are a few choice specimens to be seen, but those are way out of my league. However, I have bought some really nice coins from some of the EAC member dealers listed here on the links page. Let's hear it for those guys!!! Decent coins at fair prices. Thanks especially to Tom, Chris & Craig, they know who they are.
A few days ago I received an email giving me my member number and expiration date. I have had my registration verified for the forum, but when trying to log in or register on the home page the system does not recognize me. I expect that it has not been updated yet. If any one knows who to contact about this I would be most appreciative. Would like to get those PennyWise back issues. Anyway, it's good to be here among like minded nuts. Yours, Jim.
