From The Editor
Earlier this summer, I had a chance to collect a little bit in Hungary, and finally I was able to complete my post World War II silver coin series. It always amazes me how collecting is different in certain areas of the world. I very much felt that though good quality coins matter, collectors tend to concentrate more on series and quantities, though it is also true that I was finding more people who are collecting many countries, so putting together higher grade coins is more of an undertaking. It was also interesting that I found less slabbed coins, and storage in general was more casually done.
In Hungary I heard about the new Nobel Prize Winner series, which I will share with you in the first article.
In the last newsletter, as part of my introduction, I mentioned that I would like to promote the idea that coin collecting is for everyone. With this in mind, I would like to share my experience collecting with my daughter who is just turning 8. I hope to give some inspiration to those who would like to pass on the love of coins to the next generation.
Brandon visited the Baltimore Coin Show this summer, and he wrote about his experience.
A gentle reminder to all of our readers, I am continuously looking for newsletter articles for future issues. If you know about something interesting, useful, or something is just close to your heart, please email me, I will be happy to share it in the next newsletter.
