    During Christmas. There’s nothing like kicking back in your living room, in front of a nice fire. Merry Christmas everybody.

    Following breakfast this morning my Secret Santa box was opened. To my delight it contained thoughtful and generous presents. My collection does not contain commemoratives, which makes this gift so special. Many thanks to my Secret Santa. May your present be as appreciated as the one you sent me.

    And a sincere thank you to Brandon for his efforts ramrodding this years Secret Santa!

    Merry Christmas everyone and big thanks to my SS! You went above and beyond and I love all of them. Accompanied by a hand made card was this beautiful stack:

    A 2019 silver eagle, a gorgeous 1914 German Mark (says AU but looks like a 64) and a full range of ancients! A great Seleucid serrate, a cool Widow’s mite with a sprue, a very cool Kushan drachm, a very detailed Licinius II LRB, and an awesome Byzantine follis.

    Way too much but fantastic all the same.

    Merry Christmas to all my fellow CTers! I must have been very good this year as Santa brought me a wonderful gift: a 1981 Canadian Proof Set! Although I don't specifically focus on collecting them, I have always had a special place in my collection for Canadian coinage from when I would pull them out roll searching/going through the till at my job.

    I especially like the slight bit of toning that he silver dollar has going on, it has a very nice look to it. I also really like the presentation of these proof sets over the US ones, I am thinking I will take it into my office as a little display piece since I don't have any coin related stuff in there. Thanks Santa, it is very much appreciated!

    Thank You Secret Santa! I was very surprised at my gift. This is a beautiful coin, a Barber Quarter. This is the first of this series for me. I can't wait to start collecting the rest of them. Thanks Again! 20191210_114422.jpg 20191210_114454.jpg

    I received a nice haul, A 2001 gold quarter Denver set. This is great, I anticipate this as a start of a new collection for me. Next are 4 Kennedy proof halves (2002s, 1987s, 1977s, 1972s) all in basement slabs accurately weighed. I have never seen these slabs prior, and I must say they are very nicely done. Next is a 1959 Franklin proof half. I took this one out of the plastic zip lock for a better photo of the sheer beauty of this piece. And lastly, a really neat 1943s cent that appears to have something going on with the mm. Ill have to look at this one closer later. Thanks SS, and for all of you making this a special event, especially Brandon!

    Merry Christmas Guys!

    I recieved a very generous gift from my secret Santa... thank you to him/her :).

    Here's the breakdown, love it all!

    20191225_110711.jpg
    A crazy cool scale! This is actually perfect because I have been missing my scale for a long time now, but this is big enough not to lose haha!

    20191225_110739.jpg
    A 1986 commemorative half! This design is the only one I've ever found coin roll hunting (it was an impaired proof, this is truly an upgrade of course!).

    20191225_110812.jpg
    A star note and a 1935 silver certificate.

    And finally

    20191225_110821.jpg
    Finally, a 2019 silver eagle!

    My secret santa was very generous and I'm really happy with my gifts.

    I love CTSS every year because it is my one and only coin related gift and I'm glad that we always have a large number of participants :)

    Santa kindly sent me three very beautiful coins from Baden, which eventually joined three other German States to form Baden Württemberg, which is where I lived for about two years. Samra knows that I collect German States coinage and gave me a chuckle using green duct tape (which we Army folks call 100 mph tape). Thank you Santa and Merry Christmas!!

    Santa knew I like Silver coins. Especially World Silver coins. He did not disappoint. A nice 1967 proof 100 Forint from Hungary. Mintage 10,000. Upon looking at the forehead closely, I know know where the term Butthead comes from. Thanks Santa.
