Reggie Bess has been building his coin collection for the past 30 years.
“And so this is my penny collection, this is what I'm working on today,” he says unfolding a cardboard panel with rows of coins.
When he lost his home two years ago, he parted with a lot of other things but his coin collection? It mattered too much.
“That there is 1884,” he says pointing to a penny in his collection.
But now he doesn’t have to drag it from place to place. He’s relieved to have a motel room to himself. He just moved into the Travel Inn off Parkway Drive.
