Any winners in the Goldberg's Pre-Long Beach Auctions?

12 posts in this topic

I snagged this piece:




Goldberg's Description:

    1946 Booker T. Washington Half Dollar with the original card and envelope as issued.

    A magnificent coin with vivid original "tab" toning on both sides.

Certainly.  Buried deep within the convolutions of my brain was a faint recollection of the Chat Board Guidelines which specify, "references to significantly emotional topics such as Nazis, slavery, etc." are prohibited.  So, I played "moderator-for-the-day," and having just come off a lively exchange in which a member elsewhere explicitly warned that "some viewers may be offended," regarding an aspect of the same topic, stood up defiantly (in my mind) and gave a thumbs down to poor old Booker T.  Unbeknownst to me, Dena (again, in my mind) strode in behind me and in a loud clear voice, overruled me: "I'll allow it."

I have since taken the liberty of viewing your profile, and realized I made two mistakes:  I had unknowingly addressed a senior-most member of the Forum, and the subject you broached had been the subject of previous presentations. My sincerest aplogies for the rude intrusion. 

P.S.  I have no idea what "tab" toning is, but I do like the coin and read his autobiography (the title of which, "UFS" Chat Board Guidelines prohibit me from explicitly referring to).  🤔 

[Sorry for the delay in responding. The mods, understandably, had to go over this with a fine-toothed comb.  Man I love this place!]

Why?  What did you see that the moderators, sitting en banc, missed?  Enquiring minds want to know.

This is hands down, the #1 Forum in all the land!

The Moderators are tops in my book!  Flexible, fair and accommodating.

🐓:  I heard of mathematics, but numis-what?

Numismatique, en Francais, Ricky... des pieces de monnaie, capiche?

🐓 :  Oui, senor!

P.S.  Your Booker T. was a winner!  Thanks for sharing!
