It's been 42 Years!!!!!

42 Years!!!!! Yes. It's been 42 years since I started collecting Coins, Notes and Stamps. This was the first ever item which I collected. This was given to me by my Uncle, and I started collecting from the same day.

In India, 14th November is celebrated as Children's Day, and India Post issues a stamp every year, depicting the Winning Painting from the Painting Exhibition organised by the Department of Post.

Your uncle gave you a hobby for a lifetime. I know you have a fabulous collection now, after 42 years of gathering information and thinking about such common household things as coins. The best is still to come, the things you will be adding to that collection. As they said when I was a student: tomorrow is the first day of the rest of your life.

Congratulations! :)

42 years of collecting? That's more than my age! ;) I have been collecting since 2000 but would still consider it as 2008 as that was the time when I started collecting seriously (which no surprises, coincides with my WoC membership 8))...

Caution. The low-hanging fruits are still there maybe for a reason.

I started in 1946 when my father returned from WW2 with a handful of coins and notes that he passed on to me at that time. I don't want to think about how long ago that was as it might be a long time.  ::)

Congratulations. More than years, I think you have kept to the hobby quite religiously ... your collection is fantastic and quite enviable. Hats off to the dedication.

And hats off to your uncle, and to all uncles and grandfathers and neighbours (in my case, the grandpa of my friend next door, when I was nine years old) giving their nephew-grandchild-neighbour's child a little box of coins to kindle one's interest in collecting. Don't forget that little flame, pass it on!
