    Its doesn't seem that long ago .... I wish we still had everyone who started out on this forum as many now have moved on but some have remained and I'm thankful for that and the "new" ones who have recently found their way here .

    Coincidently, the other day I was looking for any coins I've found around the time of the War of 1812 and have NONE! I looked up the mintage on 1813 cents and it's under half a million...and I didn't even know it was Queen Anne on British coins in 1713. That leaves 1913. Happy Birthday, AD!
