    Meanwhile, construction has begun on an off-axis lighting rig. I will post photos when it's done because I want to see if anyone can sort out the method before I reveal how I'm doing it -- the only hint I will give is that I live in an apartment and therefore do not have anything in the way of a carpentry shop. If it comes out as nice as I hope it does, I want to have a little brass plaque made for it in the style of Renaissance Humanist inventors: 'D Periparus facit MMXVIII' (Periparus would be the Latin version of my surname, in a similar way to how Carl von Linné is Carolus Linnaeus and Mikołaj Kopernik is Nicolaus Copernicus -- although mine is more of a direct translation than just a Latinization of the pronunciation).

    Elongated coins

    Nice grouping of elongated coins. I have always enjoyed these. It seems most of the machines are disappearing. A shame as they are such fun and make great souveniers.

    The best I've got so far is an MS67 silver 1973-S and yeah, it's got detail and lustre all day long. PR69DCAMs are pretty easy to find, but some of the business strikes get crazy real fast if you stray north of the MS65 line -- my silvers are 66 and 67, but my business strikes are all 65s.

    ikaros' goodies

    Slabbed Ikes are usually neat coins. The true uncirculated versions and the proofs show such nice detail. It seems that many of the circulation strikes were poorly done from the start and thus lack detail and nice fields. I hope you do well on your quest.

    Yeah, last year was really good for pawing through boxes -- mostly for medals. I'm hoping for more of the same this year; I still haven't set myself any priorities. If I come away with a new slabbed Ike, it'll be a good show.
