jgenn's Bio
My rekindled interest in collecting started in 2009 with the impulse purchase of a 1783 shipwreck coin. I did not imagine that collectible grade 8 reales coins were available until I started browsing Ebay to see whether I got a good deal on my first one. After I realized what a poor deal I made, I set out to build a collection of quality 8 reales of the 1772-1791 design featuring the bust of Charles III. I've added a modest collection of columnarios, too.

In 2013, I started a themed collection of coins depicting the sport of fencing, one of mu other activities.

My current focus is on a collection of world silver crowns of the 16th to 19th centuries, that I call "My World Crown Affair". I have examples from the Commonwealth and England, France, Holy Roman Empire states and free cities, Swiss cantons, Dutch provinces, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Poland, Russia, Ragusa, Italian states, the Ottoman Empire, Malta, Hungary, Transylvania, the United States of America and, of course, Spain and Spanish colonies. After I started down this road, I decided to extend this set into the 19th century allowing me to feature most of the crowns of the newly independent Spanish colonies as well as some crowns of Asia and Africa.
