    New to the group

    Hello all.

    I am new to the group. Just to let you know a little about me. I am 57 and a disabled vet. I have 3 compression fractures on my spine due to an injury while I was in the Navy. You can say I started collecting in the service, because I kept coins and currency from every country that we visited when the ship I was on was on Westpac. Saw a video on you tube about a 1983 Lincoln penny error, that got me started crh on pennies. Since then I have basically had to start collecting everything I saw. Got overwhelmed with everything stopped for a while and got back to looking for errors and varieties in Lincolns.

    Welcome Allen. So you discovered the one important hobby concern that you can not collect everything! Glad you focused on varieties as that is where the fun is.

    Welcome to the forum, glad to have you. Thank you for your service to the country.


    Don't hesitate to jump right on in with varieties, errors, questions, comments, etc. etc.
