  1. Sold! Thanks! Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns, Capt-AWACS, Veni, Vidi, Bibi
  2. I have a USmint wrapped roll (25 coins) of 2000 Philadelphia sacs. The obverse shows on one end, and reverse shows on the other. Both ends display moderate contact (fingerprints, toning). I'll sell for $27 plus shipping (any way you want it so-to-speak). If anyone is interested let me know. I can't get a photo now as my cam is not hooked into my new laptop (I'm working on it). I've sold and traded on this site before so please email me or PM any questions-I have a paypal acct or can take a check. Thanks for looking.

  3. a roll of 1980 unc PDS SBAs. Not to exciting, but profitable none-the-less. Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns, Capt-AWACS, At any given hour in Clark County, NV, 30% of the drivers are intoxicated, the national average is 8%
  4. I have an 1899 Morgan I would be willing to sell. Actually I had 10 and sold 9, but I am not really a "Morgan kind of guy" so I'll sell the last one too, just let me know. I will scan it if you are interested. It has some toning on the obverse bottom/reverse top and I would guess the grade is is ~AU-55/58? I am certainly not a pro grader.

  6. Yeah I just spent two weeks in Alerta and got a 2004 and 05 Unc sets and both have the halfs. Nice pics BTW. Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns, Capt-AWACS, Watching you from 30,000 feet
  7. http://www.omnicoin.com/coin_view.aspx?id=889456 I'd like to find some more info on this piece. DOes anyone have more info or know of some links/books on it. Is it a copy (looks like 2002?) of a pattern or something? Thanks in advance for any words. Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns, Capt-AWACS, Remember the Alamo
  8. GOt mine yesterday, I like the new layout! Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns, Capt-AWACS, Remember the Alamo
  9. I found that the book store "Books-a-million" in the Southern and Western US, has plenty of supplies and ata good price. if you have a savings card you get 10% off. Sometimes Barnes and Noble has them as well. Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns, Capt-AWACS, Oklahoma, a Native word for trailer park
  10. Just go back and read the forum from page 3 on, there are plenty of reasons listed, did you not see them? As an aside I am still waiting for any purported link in all of these gov't conspiracies you speak of in relation to dollar coins and the new world currency order, and how the coin takes my rights away. If you can't find any again, I will humbly spell it out again. Though saving 20-30 Million minimum a year in taxes a great reason in and of itself. This might not sound like much but it is huge, and this is coming from someone like myself who has broken more in "tax payer" funded items
  11. metalman you just proved one of my points (re-US attitudes-thanks), and trust me, I've talked to more Americans, and travelled to more of America, than you could ever hope to (and I could prove it but I digress again). I say that not, again, to be a dick, but to just state a fact as you seem to show yourself as some crusader against the false "new world order". YOu are not the only one to "talk" to American's, see America, and be their spokesman... And it is not just GAO surveys, but in various media outlets. The SAC is not a failure in that is filling its niche. If the pure goal was to
  12. -“well gee AWACS I had no Idea I was so screwed up,, What was I thinking?”- I didn’t know what you were thinking, and I’ve tried to give you a chance to articulate it. You did not address much of my posts above, and this is a bit tangential. But forums are all about ideas I guess. -“I should have realised that freedom is in no way tied into the monitary system .”- You are trying to tie in two different issues again, this is my biggest problem with your posts (and I would love to see some link in the two, honestly). A switch to a dollar coin, in no way effects, nor affects your freedom
  13. Wel mine ended at 66.15, a pretty good price for 3 94-5 Swiss notes with an exchange value of ~ 62 USD. Thanks all for alooking. Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns, Capt-AWACS, I post, you decide
  14. -"You know IM not a kid ,Ive lived a little life and Ive seen the settle changes in everything from Child rearing to Monitary changes, I was around when Silver was taken from our coins"- Coulda fooled me kid j/k . I've lived on four continents, been to all seven, lived in 11 states, and done my time with my own business (which is doing great BTW). I'm glad you have been around, so have I. Now that we have that out of the way.... -"FED which you seem to be so fond of, caused Inflation to spin out of control in the early 80's , My business at the time barely survived "- I never
  15. Well I "lived" Las Vegas for 5 weeks, was just in Phoenix for two, Tucson for a few days, and Albuquerque all the time and never had a problem getting Dollar coins into vending machines. This is an aside from the fact the fed and transport machines already use them and give them back (granted mass transit is a lost art in much of the Southwest but the use is mandated anyway). You seem to have a problem with the design of the coin, or do you fear the perceived cost of a changeover? The dollar while widely accepted is not quite good "anywhere" in the world, but it is close-- the higher deno
  16. Found a beat up 48 on the floor of a coin shop in OKC a few weeks ago, and he let me keep it. Last one I received in change was a few days ago in Houston at a grocery store downtown. Always fun to find! My friends find them and give them to me, usually one or two a year. Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns, Capt-AWACS, You may now move about the cabin
  17. -"who is a forward thinking person would realise that the use of higher denomination bills would increase as a result,,"- Actually that would not be the case at all (other country’s have done it and not spent more over time). Gov't estimates have shown people are more inclined to spend the coins (dollars) but nothing is shown as increasing for high bills. For higher denom bills to be spent more, you would need some serious inflation, which I don't see happening. (I see no cause and effect to increase high bill usage without the one, other than $2s if we keep printing them, which I thi
  18. No it is a fact that the gov't will save 25-30 million a year minimum on dollar coins if paper dollars are removed. They might spend it on something else, but the savings are there-mainly due to how long a coin lasts versus the 18~ months of the dollar. Sanmiguel, I've always liked having no "pennies" in the BX, but I often use pogs, as I have some many If all stores listed prices with Tax included (again like movie theatres) that would help the process.

  19. -""They have just went so fast," Julie Brown a teller from South Ottumwa Savings Banks said. "- They have just GONE so fast... Boy that irks me. But I digress. THey are a welcome change IMO, and I ordered the boy special from the mint and have yet to receive it!! I ordered it May 28 and was told delivery in mid June, then it changed to July 7th, and now the site says a ship date of 20 July I want my nickel set!!!!!! Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns, Capt-AWACS, The USAF we do our best work overseas
  20. which proves my point American's don't like change[sic]... Sisu, while I agree, for the most part-- with sales tax/VAT taxes like they are, stores will have to list prices with tax already included..which is rarely done in the USA. Movie theatres are the first example that comes to mind. Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns, Capt-AWACS, Redheads are nuts
  21. wow! The story seems plausible. The US Government's reaction will be interesting, since the mint did originally give the specimans to congress. I say let them keep it! My first guess at an auction price- $2-2.5 million. Now for the 64 Peace dollars... Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns, Capt-AWACS, Forum alpha breeder male
  22. Well mistermcdoo it looks like you were my one and only bidder on the newer polymer notes. PM me and we can work out the auction details. Thanks for bidding on my first coinpeople auction! Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns, Capt-AWACS, aka Tony, of the Houston Tonys
  23. no problem! I'm glad what little Arabic I learned and even less I remember is good for something LOL Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns, Capt-AWACS, You may now move about the cabin
  24. thanks amigo, I just realised I didn't talk about payment. I have a paypal account, or will take a check, money order, or if you are brave US cash (though I suggest against it). Did I cover everything else. I'm a coinpeople auction virgin Oh I see my link is not working, I'll fix that soon. Ciao, and Hook 'em Horns, Capt-AWACS, Gear up, Flaps up, Low drag
  25. Well I started after getting a proof set of my birth year, but moving so much as a child, I already had banknotes from all over the world--I just didn't know it was a collection yet Now I focus more on paper, but still do some coins. I also collect license plates from all over the world. And I have tons of airplane stuff around which I don't actively collect but jet have from my flying. I don't really do stamps. Oh and I have 31 hard rock cafe hurricanes I've picked up from the cafes I've visited. I don't really like the cafes, or the touristy aspect of it but it started on a whim so I
