Day 14 (Thursday, May 8)

Coin collecting is something that I became interested in because of my grandfather.  We would spend hours sorting through piles of coins.  Of course, medieval coins are my favorite.  Whilst in York, I fell victim to the beauty of two new coins.  I took them out of their boxes just a few minutes ago.  A Henry VIII groat (on the left) and an Edward VI shilling (on the right).  Now, I just need a Henry VII and a Mary I to complete my Tudor coin collection.  They are the first antiques I have purchased in about 7 years.
