always double check


Like most other people I've been known to buy things on impulse. Sure enough last time I was out shopping, I found a nice walking liberty half. I bought it, but likely should have just held onto the money. I checked what they have been selling for at auctions lately and overpaid by about 25%. Sure I got to pick it but I'm not sure that it is that much nicer than the ones that could have been had site unseen. For a bit more than I paid, I could have ordered one in 66 instead of 65.


Well there's the word to wise, don't pay more than a guide price when you are out shopping for something that you can pick up elsewhere for less.
