Don't Call these Cents a Hoard
May 20, 2013
I received a letter from someone who said he had 1,080,000 cents that weigh three and a half tons.
These have been accumulated over the course of the last 54 years.
He wrote the coins are not a hoard. Rather, they are a collection, or perhaps it would be better to say they are multiple collections: 100 roll sets plus a bag set of Lincoln Memorial cents from 1959 to 2008.
