I did it! I finally completed my quest! I collected all of the four most common U.S. coins from my birth year! Only took me about two and a half years. I wasn’t trying that hard. Mostly because I’m not on much of a cash basis. (It’s the age of electronic money!)
You know what I just realized, while rereading that old entry? It’s suiting that I found my last coin, a quarter, while cleaning my grandparents’ house. :3 So in an indirect way, my collection has come full circle!
