  1. 1912-S - one of the few keys of that series. The S is hiding at the bottom left (8 o clock position) on the reverse.


    Upon retuning from Portland yesterday, I had an interesting, and disturbing envelope from the USPS. All that was in it is a crinkled, jagged edged scrap of paper with my name and address. It is obviously from an envelope that was sent to me. The back of the USPS envelope say's "WE CARE", and an apology for damaging my mail. The way the paper is crinkled, I think something (a coin)? may have been in the original envelope that got caught in the cancelling machine. I will take it to the PO tomorrow, but I'm sure there is nothing they can do. I will always wonder where this came from though, and what was in it.

  2. Hundreds of coins found in French patients belly

    Necklaces, needles also discovered in 62-year-old man


    French doctors were taken aback when they discovered the reason for a

    patients sore, swollen belly: He had swallowed around 350 coins $650 worth along

    with assorted necklaces and needles.


    The 62-year-old man came to the emergency room of Cholet General Hospital in

    western France in 2002. He had a history of major psychiatric illness, was

    suffering from stomach pain, and could not eat or move his bowels.


    MSNBC news story:





    Suppose he was trying to develop a new method for toning?? I ain't buying it (pun intended)

  3. Well, I am speechless. I received a very nice, unsolicited, and completley unexpected packed from Bill today. It contained articals that he knows my wife, and myself collected. I am convinced Bill is a genuinly nice person, and I owe you, thanks Bill!

  4. "This half was sent to PCGS for grading, about 5 years back, came back in a body bag for questionable surfaces, ie: thumbing. I don't know, I cant see it. Of course it's my coin, so maybe I don't want to see it"


    Looks great to me. What is thumbing?

  5. Dangit, I have practically no coin budget as I am trying to say every penny I have for my short trip next month and you people go off selling all sorts of cool silver coins that I need, and some gorgeous gold! STOP I say!! :ninja:



    I'm with you! I am still paying for the trip to Arizona, and still owe a couple of people for coins :cry: I cannot overstate my appreciation for their understanding.

    there are some really nice folks on this forum, that I would like to meet in person someday.

  6. Just returned from a trip to Phoenix to find several nice surprises: a wooden nickel from Art, two "06" nickels from the bunny, several coins I had bought from Harri (will get the money off tomorrow), and a very nice gift 10 euro Karl Schinkel coin from Christian. Thanks to all, it was nice to see these amonst all the junk mail/bills that were in the pile.
