I buy and sell weekly , but yes , my personal collections are investment .Hopefully we will not need it and we can leave it all to the kids and Grandkids. It is fun to look at , an entire collection of Indian Cents , Buffalo nickels , Barber Halves etc . , then remember the History of those years , significant events etc that still impact life . 1913 is a big year for coins ( several fairly rare ones , 1913 S dime , 1913 S nickels two types , 1913 D nickels two types, 1913 Half , 1913 Liberty nickel etc ) , think of the significant things happening then . Then there are the Depression years , some of those they did not mint much money .Interesting . Good way to accumulate precious metals that is more fun than bullion too , if you stay in the gold and silver series coins.
