Started collecting VAMs in 2006. Joined original VAMWorld same year. I collected primarily Morgan VAMs, but dabbled in Peace Dollars. With the birth of my youngest son in 2010 (and having 2 in diapers and daycare), I stopped hunting and buying altogether. In late 2018, when my youngest turned 8, I dug out my coins and started looking at them again. I decided to get back in the game, but flip it to where my focus now is on the Darkside. Peace Dollars are much more of a challenge for me, which makes it fun! I still wish I could grade them properly!
