    New to forum.

    Hello all, Just found this site a thought it nice to have a dedicated Lincoln Site. Started coin collecting with the Lincoln cent around 1969-70 I think. Got a Whitman coin collecting kit for Christmas one year. My brother got the Stamp collecting kit, I ended up with that too. Jump to 4 years US Navy. Marriage of 36 year, two sons one
    adopted daughter. Worked in the maintenance and repair/ fabricating trades mostly. Boiler operator at local hospital presently. I got back into coins a few year ago and got spread out to far into world coins and other areas.
    decided to try to focus on a narrower band for a while. I don't coin roll hunt, I prefer to let coins find me, so to speak. I don't buy coins on-line, and I own three coins that are in Slabs. One of those was gifted to me.
    I like Kennedy Halfs, Ike & Morgan Dollars, Exnumia And Tokens Of all sorts.
    I have been on Coin Talk.com for a year or so. And have learned a lot. Hope to do the same here, And be able to contribute to the conversations.

    Welcome to the LCF Alurid! Very interesting story of how you got started collecting coins, and where you are today! You must be one of those lucky guys that finds gems in pocket change or just laying around somewhere! Looking forward to hearing more about your Lincoln finds!
