I believe most people collect something , it could be coins, cars, mugs, stamps , the list goes on but are you the type of collector who care for it's monetary value or you collect it for a different reason and it has sentimental value. Most people I met so far at their young age collect more stuff with sentimental value. Some are family inherit so it has more sentimental value to them than others but don't you want to know exactly how much is the actual value of the things you are collecting or in hand? I like to make research online for close guess. I have several coins collected and this particular kind I want to see a morgan dollar price guide to see value of each coin by year it was circulated. I've had it for years now and it was given to me by father who had it for years. After he found out that I have growing interest on coin collecting, he shared me few of his. I would keep it for special reason and hand it down from my generation down. Some things just money cannot buy.
