Susan B. Awesome

Picked up a few interesting pieces this weekend while out yard saling! One of which threw me for a loop – that beautiful Susan. B. Anthony dollar pictured above. As I do at all yard sales, especially ‘estate sales’, one of the first places I check out are ... [Full Post]

I’ll Grant You That, Lincoln.

Oh man, just came across a couple of old bills I picked up the other month while cleaning up my desk. A $50 bill from 1928, and a $5 bill from 1934. You don’t see those every day! Nor such clever blog titles, right? ;) ‘Cuz Grant and ... [Full Post]

I’ve never owned any error coins to this degree before, only some barely off-centered coins/ dollar bills, so ... [Full Post]

9 Questions with… Len Penzo

Welcome to our 2nd ever coin collector interview! And, just like the 1st one we did (on myself), this one’s a bit quirky too :) Because you see, my good friend, and fellow finance blogger, Len Penzo does not fancy himself an actual “collector.” At least in terms ... [Full Post]

Where I Keep All My Coins

I don’t know why, but this will probably be my favorite post I write on this site. There’s something so voyeuristic about seeing where people hoard their things :) Especially their valuable things. And, just like money is so taboo to talk about in the open these days, ... [Full Post]
