  1. ...fortunately real coin collectors will get to decide.....
  2. ...nah dont give in...but remember to "buy the book first"....the way things r going in our society we mite need to build our own cars before its all over...i can see a brite future in " how to" books n maybe a "how to get rid of my crypto for dummy's" book too...dont forget..."H yes i want my change back"....
  3. oh i personally believe that ur area is truly numismatic, numismatics is much more than just the coins themselves...without the historical backgrounds n exonumia n ephemera surrounding the collectors n collecting hobby they r just coins...having a fleshed out portrait in time of the hobby is what allows us the privilege of that walk back in time to enjoy our hobby...please dont minimalize ur contributions, they r admired, respected n appreciated....
  4. ...i didnt notice the words..."accusations, complaints, allegations"...in the OP's thread?, i guess literary license is selectively permitted depending on the source...thinly veiled opinions crossing into facts again possibly, nothing new.....
  5. ..."spending money on money"...reminds me of my dad....i at one time collected antique candlesticks, my dad's comment..."how many damn candleholders does one person need"....but i digress, happy 35th n congrats on ur display worthy collection of Z coins, i feel ur self satisfaction....
  6. ...i think it was 19 sept 1999 when i sold all my old wheaties boxes, that must have started it n snowballed from there...but seriously u r totally correct, even as far back as 1981 when one carat D color IF diamonds got up to $65-70K per carat the speculation/investment market has never restabilized n reset to normal, seems all the get-quick-rich-over-night guys just move from one bubble to the next, sort of like fishing on a big pond n they just move from one place to nother looking for next school of suckers...was only a matter of time before it got to numismatics n the un-learned coin "collector" to provide them their new fish....
  7. ...having a couple of cert issues though...ngc doesnt have any oversized slabs quite big enuf n my mailman says aint going haul it...i was hoping to upgrade my collection to vg-10s....
  8. ...im a Yap stone money man myself...either u got it or u dont, u can flaunt ur wealth just by leaving it lay around in ur yard, size does matter...n u dont need a safe to keep it in....
  9. ...Hunt brothers, real not fictional....me thinks ur rambling into Hazard County.....
  10. ...and of course there mite be a problem finding teachers that r products of the current education system that could even teach math if it were being taught...the boomers mite have to come out of retirement to teach.....
  11. ...revisionist social studies....with a heavy reference to the social part verging on socialism ideologies, i guess if it goes far enuf there wont be a need for money or numismatics to try to stay on topic a bit....
  12. ...whose going tell them which side of the decimal point to add the zeros to?...
  13. ...all our next socially engineered educated generation will be able to compute is rounding n even then someone will need to tell them whether its up or down....of course there mite be a movement to counter culture math n then everyone can just guess....
  14. ...i take risks all the time...but not stupid risks, i prefer my tangible assets to be where i can carry them with me when all he.l.l breaks loose ditto my a.m.m.o.....
