Todd Sukol has been acquiring coins and currency since childhood and owns, like many collectors, quite a few more pieces than his wife wishes he did. While his numismatic interests are diverse, his current focus is on 3 main projects:

Todd's other interests include writing, Jewish law, world history and the U.S. financial markets. Possible future numismatic projects include various collections of European coinage by historical time periods. (Todd Sukol, MCCC, P.O. Box 7087, Silver Spring, MD 20907)

Mark Zimmermann is particularly excited about coins of 1852. For background information on that year and some images from his collection, visit his 1852 web page. Mark is also actively collecting Booker T. Washington and George Washington Carver - Booker T. Washington U.S. commemorative half dollars which were produced from 1946-1954. He feels that BTWs and W-Cs (or C-Ws) are grossly underpriced at the moment, compared to their scarcity, and that their connection to African American history is significant. (Mark Zimmermann, P.O.Box 598, Kensington, MD 20895-0598, USA)
