I just recently joined the NGC collector's society, and I just wanted to take the time to make an attempt to get know some of the fellow members. I'm currently home from college for the summer and I wanted to continue my research on American coins, and figured that the resources that the society has to offer would take my collecting experience to a new level. I have been collecting since I was about six, so roughly 14 years. My first collecting Mercury dimes, and since then my collection has expanded to other coins, some of which I never really thought that I would ever collect. I remember when I was younger and looked at auction prices for what I thought were "just pennies", thinking "who would pay several thousands of dollars for a penny?", now I find myself trying to explain to others; my mother included that it's not just a penny. I acquired a great collection of coins over the years but sold them recently to help pay for college expenses, and I'm currently working on restoring my collection to the level it was previously. I just recently started a large cent collection and I'm on the hunt for an inexpensive book that would break down by year all of the variations for the large cents, any suggestions? I would really enjoy the opportunity to talk to other large cent collectors, as I'm sure you can imagine it isn't easy finding someone close to my age who actually understands the unique history and craftsmanship behind each coin. I do have one pressing question, how to you reply to posts; I have looked for a reply button but I have had no luck finding it, any hints or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to getting to know all of you better, and I can't wait to become more active in the society!
