About this journal

I think of British coins like milk, I love them but they hate me. 

I looked over some of my "best" British coins and pulled out a few that I thought were true winners.  I came up with a 1937 crown that I thought was a sure lock for a 64 and maybe even a 65 if the NGC gods were kind.  But it came back a ordinary 63.  I also sent in a 1895 Florin that I would have bet my car was atleast a 64 and that came back a 63.  And to top it off I had yet another one (1834 farthing) come back in a purple holder, hairline scratches. 

My hat goes off to all those British collectors, like RMW, who come back with grades I dream of at night.  

I'm not giving up, I'm staying in the fight, but it sure would be great to be right for just once.  It's still fun anyways.

GOOD LUCK TO ALL OF YOU, YOU'RE GOING TO NEED IT

This isn't fun anymore. Hey there Rick, Thank you for your offer on the trades, but I think I am going to just sell as much as I can being myself to letting go. I think that if I was to trade/buy any more stuff, I would just want to put it up on the Registry, and that is exactly what I want out off. I have been collecting for about 10 years now. I have been an active player on the registry for about 8 of those years. Over those 8 years I have added, deleted, re-added, re-deleted sets

WHO, IN YOUR WORLD, IS THE BEAR?

DAYS OF THE PAST, THE BEAR HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE CUSTOMER. NOW, ALL OF THE SUDDEN, THE BEAR IS THE BIG COMPANIES THAT HAVE THE CUSTOMER CORNERED BECAUSE OF SERVICE OR LACK THERE OF. OR BECAUSE OF SPECIAL CONNECTIONS THAT OFFERES SPECIAL LABELS OR TURN-AROUND TIMES FOR THOSE "BIG DEALERS". MAYBE SITTING IN THE CLOSET SUCKING YOUR THUMB IS YOUR WAY OF DEALING WITH DISGUSTING FEES, SERVICE, AND EGOTISTICAL BEHAVIOR. HOWEVER, THAT DOESN'T WORK FOR ME.
