Antique firearms and coin collector. I have been collecting silver coins since they were less than $4 an ounce. My grandfather started me collecting Morgan dollars when for my birthday every year since I was ten years old when he would give me one as a present. This was in 1966. The first coin was his birth year of 1896. Long before the new master grading companies were created. Now silver is the price of a twenty dollar gold piece I sure wish I had been smart enough to collect them as well.
