Coins-United States | CentSearcher

Hello everyone! I'm back once again with another long blog update. I have a ton of news and purchases to share, so I'm going to try to keep it simple. Here's what I've got:

A Look into the Toned Lincoln Cent Set (and a Huge Update to My Set)

Coins-United States | CentSearcher

Hello everyone! I know, it's been several weeks since my last blog post. I really did mean to post, but the photos wasn't working, so I decided to wait until the problem was fixed. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words (but don't worry, I'll still give you a thousand words for you to read). The main discussion of this blog will be the toned Lincoln Cent set, and a huge update to my personal collection of toned Lincolns.

Collecting Modern Commemorative Half Dollars (2016 National Park Service)

Coins-United States | CentSearcher

Greetings members of the ANA! I've been pretty busy this weekend, but I was able to set aside enough time to put together my weekly blog (let's see how long I can keep it up). As I mentioned in last week's blog, most of the articles will be related to a recent pickup. The title will have this week's discussion, and in parentheses. I'll also be making titles in bold for each paragraph, because some of my blogs will be really long ;)

A Brief History of PCGS OGH Holders (and the 2021 Annual YN Auction)

Coins-United States | CentSearcher

Hello everyone! I have a lot to talk about for this blog, so I'm going to do my best to keep it short. Before I start, I'm going to go ahead and say that I have a new schedule for my blogs. The plan is to post every Saturday, with most articles being related to a recent pickup (like this blog).

The Upstate Coin Show

Coins-United States | CentSearcher

Hello everyone! I'm back to share with you my very first experience at a coin show. Covid-19 has made it difficult to go to my first show. I had tried to visit a local show earlier this year, but it was cancelled. But a few weeks ago I checked the schedule again and found the Upstate Coin Show, which had 50+ dealer tables. The original dates had been rescheduled, but the show was still on. Me and my dad went out to it on Saturday and spent several hours there.

Updates, and my first Great Collections auction win

Coins-United States | CentSearcher

Hello everyone! It has been an extremely long time since I last posted, or really did anything at all on the ANA website. So I thought that I would update you on how things have been going, as well as some of my recent pickups.

Inactivity and Lincoln cent die

Coins-United States | CentSearcher

Hello everyone! It has been a very long time since I last wrote a blog, so I thought it would be a good idea to update you on how things have been. I have been extremely busy with school, soccer, and other things, so I didn't have the chance to be on the ANA website much. As a matter of fact, I'll probably won't be reading all of the blogs anymore, except in summer break.

My inspiration

Coins-United States | CentSearcher

Most of us started somewhere, and most of us at that starting point had an inspiration to start collecting. My grandfather was a devoted Numismatist, and he inspired me to start my journey through numismatics.
