Hello. Mike from Connecticut. I've collected coins all my life, and got hooked on Large Cents about 20 years. As time and interest permits, I've been in and out of the hobby, and after many years away, I got back into coppers about 2 years. The Internet sure has changed things, and I must admit I do like being able to look through virtually unlimited inventory, at any time I want, in whatever state of dress I choose. My focus is primarily early date and earlier middle date cents that I can afford. I just joined region 8 and hope I can improve my education a bit.
