William R. Davis Jr.'s Bio
I began collecting coins in the early 1960s with my dad. Some of our best times together were when he'd bring home a $50 bag of cents on his payday and we'd spend the rest of the weekend looking through them.
Of course, I placed collecting on the back burner when I got my driver's license. After college, marriage and children left little time and resource for the hobby. I restarted my childhood collection in 1999, concentrating on Lincolns and proof sets.
I am just about to complete an uncirculated set of Lincolns. My next coin focus is up in the air, but it may be either Buffaloes, Indian Head cents, and/or Flying Eagle Cents.
I'm a Lifetime Member of the Society of Lincoln Cents Collectors.
I live in Hendersonville, TN and am employed as an environmental consultant for a regional engineering firm.
