What you collect and why

Post by GBELEC » Thu Jul 04, 2019 10:00 pm

I really like collection Canadian paper currency but have a collection of bills collected when traveling , as well as coin mostly Canadian . I can see as a new collector I can’t collect everything and wondering what to settle on. Would like to hear from anyone out there what they collect and why. I’m not looking to get rich at this :roll:

I am into circulation silver and I get any cheap stuff I can find . I gather through metal detecting , coin roll searching , checking abandoned buildings and at flea markets.

Actually most of my time off work that's what I'm doing its alot of fun to find treasure like this, a great means of exercise and learning about local history.

Next summer I will go snorkeling and try my hand at old swimming locations

Not sure where you live but when I was younger I use to walk old farm fence lines
And abandoned ghost towns and labour camps with my metal detector
What you find is unbelievable and truly
Treasures of past times
It’s a great way to spend a day(s)
Good luck in your hunting
