Coin Collecting Help

Moore Income ·
Hey fellow Penny Hoarders. Coin collecting has been something I have been interested in for quite some time now but haven't really known where to get started. I have a few older coins that I have gathered over the years mostly from going through coins but nothing too fancy. I am wondering if there are any serious coin collectors out there who could advise me where I could go to find coins to start a real collection. I have seen coins on eBay and other marketplaces that claim to be unsorted...

Hi @Moore Income I've been collecting coins for awhile. I just done it because i new the coins was old or sliver or copper even coins from the year i was born or a family member. Well in 2017 our son got me a gallon size zip lock bag filled with old colds and new coins. There is a 1943 sliver penny and some copper pennies not sure what else is in there. But i've asked around about them not many heard of the sliver penny. What i found out so far is the copper is worth more than the sliver...

The penny is not silver. It was produced during WW2 out of zinc, I think.

@friardave yes it is zinc over steel. not sure if that's the correct way to say it or not. But there are some that are silver just like the cooper ones.

@friardave yes it is very cool. I'll have to dig out my change and go threw the bag again to see what I've. We moved so things are still packed.
