  1. Found your vids on YouTube.( First Time watching) good informed vids. I will say this about coin collecting, I think YouTube & other areas online have ruined what coin collecting should be, a fun/enjoyable hobby. Too many people now are trying to get into coins in the hopes of making a quick buck, no thanks to YouTube & other sites..enjoy what it should be a Hobby much like stamps collecting old Post card’s.
