Re: RMG1883CC

No Man Is an Island No man is an island, Entire of itself; Every man is a piece of the continent,  A part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, As well as if a promontory were: As well as if a manor of thy friend's Or of thine own were. Any man's death diminishes me,...

Re: CHRISTMAS

"Building a new off grid cabin as well as gold mining have been really fun this year..." I too have an off grid dwelling. I didn't plan it that way, and it happened rather suddenly. And now Wisconsin is a little chilly. Expecting to fix the problem soon. Catching up on some gunsmithing projects. Hop...

Not shipping coins, but I've had some of my first class letters take over 2 weeks.
Post office has slowed down.

Re: I won a Gold PCGS Set Registry award!

It pleases me to learn how diverse and accomplished our members are. Every shared achievement is motivation for me to do more.
My left handed pencil collection may not be worth sharing, but I very much enjoy reading about other's successes.
Well done Dennis. Thank you for sharing.

Re: Guess the grade

Serious congratulations John. To an outsider, guessing how others have graded a coin, might seem trivial and unimportant. Yet it involves ever changing standards of the industry (I recall when Leroy publicly stated that it was not a worthwhile pursuit to differentiate between an MS 64 ans an MS 65.)...

At this late date I would prefer to make a contribution via PayPal over USPS.
I've had no luck with the messaging system, or I would have contacted you sooner.

Re: O/T Hijacked E-mail

It's all about perspective.
Frankly I was pleased to learn that I have $2.3 million in a Nigerian bank.
As a bonus, I've also found that I am quite desirable among eligible young Asian women.

Re: Die Marker Question

Die markers are important to me, and I appreciate those that list them.
Suppose I had a coin that had PMD to the date or mint mark.
Without the die markers I wouldn't have confirmed attribution to a scarce coin.

Re: USPS Shipping What a Joke

Before I make any errors of assumption, I need to know, is the USPS a branch of the government? Or is it an independent business?
That will help me determine if it should be run like the rest of the government or it should be run like a business.

Re: USPS Shipping What a Joke

There has been some discussion of closing the Post Office on Saturdays. My first reaction is that is not a good idea. My experiences is that will not save money, as much as promote inefficiencies. At a time when many people are laid off and purchasing on line, another delay isn't a positive move. An...

Re: September O/T Bullion Update

There have been no changes in why I believe precious metals are a safe haven from paper speculation.
Thus, I consider this an opportunity to double down on silver investments.
I may be wrong, I may not the guy to listen to.
But I will offer an opinion for others to consider.
