My first attempt at a writing a magazine article about my journey in collecting coins and how it morphed into collecting colorfully-toned coins with a specialty in Lincoln Cents. When I started writing the article, I didn’t realize how much I had to say. Now it’s grown too long to be published in any Numismatic Magazine, so I decided to self publish. There are lots of great photos, graphs, and tables showing some analysis of this interesting area of numismatics. I hope you enjoy it.
