Now that you have been published, does this mean that we will have to pay you for your comments?

 

You do realize he has been published for quite some time now? So he must be worth millions by now... yeahok.gif

Michael - You are very gracious! flowerred.gif

 

When this article came up, I wrote Michael and asked for his input, since he is a bonafide Liberty Nickel expert. His comments on the series were a fantastic guide for me and were as important as the references that I used in reading up on the series. He is a wellspring of information and a true numismatists. He is also very humble and did not want recognition in print, but on these boards where he is a constant positive influence, I think he deserves many KUDOS. My thanks to Michael for all that he has offered to me and to us here. I hope he continues to provide his excellent influence.

Thanks to all of you who take the time to look at those articles and to comment here. It makes them more fun to write to know that a few of you on the boards might have a look at them in your busy days.

 

And also on these boards, we benefit every month by the writing and research of Dave Lange whose USA Coin Album appears every month in the Numismatist.

 

And write or not, the wealth of information shared by the many fine people of these boards is fantastic. Makes it comfortable to be here.

That's awsome.....I read the latest issue of coin values from cover to cover (minus the price section) on a Flight to Maryland on Sunday. Liberty Nickels have always been one of my favorite series so I was particularly interested in those articles and even decided on some future purchases after completing the articles....................I had no Idea you wrote them Mark.....I never look to see who writes stuff foreheadslap.gif

 

Very impressive is all I can say....very impressive!!!!! 893applaud-thumb.gif

And let us not forget "The Portico", FSNC's pamphlet concerning all there is to know about Jefferson nickels. The recurring article "Date by Date" will without a doubt, be one of my favorites! First installment (1938) has already been holed and put in a three-ring binder for reference. thumbsup2.gif

 

Looking forward to all future issues, Mark! Outstanding job and I love the new format! cloud9.gif

Definately like the new format of The Portico. I'll be getting something in to you for next issue Mark and would like to encourage others (not to mention any names for the sake of embarrasing David) to write and submit to the FSNC also... laugh.gif

Hoot, I really enjoyed your article on proof Liberty nickels.

 

I always get my CoinWorld issue about a week after everyone else. I went to browse through the Coin Values before I read the CoinWorld when this article caught my eye. I was half way through before I even noticed that you wrote it. This made it a double treat. Very good article for Libery nickel and type collectors!
