letters

In Defense of the U.S. Mint I just finished reading the letters in the Dec. 17 issue of Numismatic News and all the bashing of the mint once again. I do not always agree with what the mint does all the time but it seems like it is a business not different from any other. I may be wrong but a business can choose to do what it likes and produce as many of an item as it wants. I have been collecting since I was about 15 when my grandpa would put a quarter in my hand after school and I would take it home and put it in my collection. I got out of collecting for a time when times got tough but never lost my interest in the hobby.…

hope for the hobby

One of the biggest laments you keep hearing about numismatics is who is going to be the future collectors since younger people seem to have, at best, a lackadaisical interest in the hobby.

I have given this problem some thought and came up with an idea that I think would be helpful.

what hobby activities do you kick off the new year with?

I always check my change for the new year’s dated coins. Jimmy McPleasant via Facebook I start with a new font color for my acquisition/collection spreadsheet. Though I usually use the same color and modify the acquisitions from the previous year, making 2019 Dark Green and 2020 USAF Blue. I will also be making my first 2020 purchase, a 2020 MS-70 silver American eagle and marking it in the spreadsheet. John Jordan Stafford, Va. Here are some answers sent from our e-newsletter readers.
