I am very excited to be joining the group, I look forward to getting the chance to interact with many of you.
A brief intro-
I am a Jr. High Math teacher in Northern California, married with an 8 year old son.
I started collecting coins 4-5 years ago with a small cent/nickel collection from one Grandfather and a collection of silver coins from the other. I started with a focus on small cents/dimes/halves but only went back to about 1880-1915 depending on the series.
After about a year I shifted my focus towards currency and started to pick up federal reserve notes and national bank notes for San Francisco along with national bank notes for one of our local towns (Chico California).
I am still collecting Chico notes but have found a new interest in large cents, primarily Braided Hair.
My primary goal is to get a run of Braided hair cents in XF condition. I have currently filled all but two years (1839, 1844) but will need to upgrade a few others to be able to finish my goal.
