The nickel was much deserving of its own episode. There was no question especially once I saw the completed episode that the characters, timeline and the nickel's travels itself could have been an hour special but the half hour has some of the most suspense, edge of your seat moments we brought to the program in the 26 episodes we've shot so far. It's an amazing story and I believe it will inspire people who don't collect coins to start.

11. Are you, personally, a coin collector, and if so, what do you collect?

I've bought coins over the years and have a number of them from my father that he bought for my son. At the coin show I attended in Illinois last year, the same show where a few years prior the Walton nickel was sold I got so caught up in the excitement I almost spent way more than I could or should have. Walking the show floor and sitting at the auction my heart was beating out of my chest!

12. How did you learn about Coin World?

I've known about Coin World for years and after shooting this episode I really wanted to share my excitement and enthusiasm for coin collecting and this episode of Strange Inheritance with Coin World so it's a thrill that you asked me. I also am hoping other collectors will reach out to me at jamie@strangeinheritance.com with other remarkable inheritances. I definitely want to do more rare and valuable coin collection episodes!
