Some of you are aware I/Tony make up albums of off the wall collections. Critters, ground scores, tiny coins, counterfeits, ugly busts, nautical, a big Chuckee Cheese, better off forgotten, whorehouse tokes, BIG silver, etc.

A little research today, and have created another. Coins made from various metals/alloys. There is a myriad of others, but their composition is so % minute, I don't include them. This now includes:

Aluminum

" bronze

Brass

Bronze

Chromium

Copper

Cupro-nickle

Gold

Iron

Lead

Maganese alloy

" bronze

Nickle

" brass

Silver

Steel

Stainless steel

Tin

Tombac

Zinc.

I've been in a real lull lately, collecting-wise. This puts the fire back in me. I'm looking through some tokes tonite, they're ripe with wierd stuff, paper, fibre, plastic, etc. With medals, I could maybe add about 10 more. Those foreign coins and other stuff I've been bored to death with lately has generated a new interest for me. Just wanted ya'll to know I'm inspired, even if I've got to make my own fun.

These were coins just laying around, not the locked-up stuff.

For niobium, I'll probably go fror a bi-met Austria 2003 25 euro.

Palladium, a 1967 1/2 hau from Tonga.

As for titanium, not much of a choice. Coins have been produced in this element, but working it is very difficult, and the dies wear out almost instantly. This would be a candidate, though:
