Plus, this special issue celebrates the joy and sense of community to be found among collectors.

and short; whether exciting or poignant, each story is special in its own way. We think you will find, as a whole, the articles are compelling – some are even awe-inspiring.

You’ve often heard us say: “This is your magazine”; in no other edition throughout the year is this statement truer because the great majority of its content is provided by you, our readers.

Although there are fewer submissions this year than in previous years (about 50 entries in all), selecting finalists and winners was not a single iota easier. You will find an abundance of moving accounts of treasures lost and found and lessons learned along the way.

As a bonus, we’ve decided that all the finalists will receive a copy of “Strike It Rich With Pocket Change” by Ken Potter and Dr. Brian Allen. This informative guide will help anyone spot error coins in their pocket change, which actually may be worth significantly more than face value.

We enjoyed reading all of the submissions; you have our sincere thanks for sharing them with us. Please remember: Our mailbox is always open. If you feel so compelled, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line; we are always open to new ideas when it comes to better serving our subscribers.
