About Us

It was 1982 or 1983 when, as a young boy, I first became interested in coins.  In the process of moving my great Aunt a dateless Buffalo Nickel (actual item shown in image at right) was found deep inside one of the closets.  I was instantly hooked.

I quickly learned that Buffalo Nickels were not readily available to a boy of 7 years old.  As such, my attention shifted to collecting circulated Jefferson Nickels.  They were easily attainable and even today you can still find many of the dates still in circulation.  I diligently filled my album until losing interest in the late 1980's.  My collection sat idle until 2010 when my son found it and immediately became curious.  I ordered him a Dansco album of his own and we began the journey of combing through rolls and rolls of Nickels.  We filled his book, brought mine current, and even found him a dateless Buffalo Nickel of his own in one of the rolls.

In 2012 I began to wonder if I should round out my collection with some Jefferson Proofs.  As I began to research them I learned of the 150 Felix Schlag autographed proofs and instantly realized that this would be the perfect addition to my collection.  I became aware that little seems to be known, or more accurately published, of these items and decided to launch this site in an effort to remedy this. 

If you would like to support this project either with information or monetary donations, either would be greatly appreciated.
