    It is officially Christmas day here so I went ahead and opened my CTSS gift. First let me give a big THANK YOU to my secret santa and another THANK YOU to all the other CT members for letting me be a part of this. It is an honor and a privilege to be part of this community. My secret santa did an excellent job and I couldn’t ask for better gifts. A smorgasbord of nickels that will go into a special section of my collection.

    First we have a couple raw vintage nickels.

    Next we have a nice ICG slabbed nickel from 2005.

    Last but not least, we have this beautiful Ron Landis piece with some background information. (Thanks for that info BTW) This piece is a mule using the obverse die of the gold version and the reverse die of the silver version making this even cooler than the regular version. 1/4 oz of .999 fine silver. I have always wanted a Ron Landis piece and now I have one.

    I am more than happy with my gifts and the generosity of my CTSS. I thank you and I am glad I could be a part of this. Happy Holidays to all of you.

    Thanks again,
    Lem

    Well, a member signed up but was late in providing an address. Brandon sent out a post saying this. A day or two went by and I inquired if anyone had responded. Negative. So I told him I'd be willing to send another gift. And here we are...

    My Secret Santa gifted me a 1943-P wartime nickel and 1944-D NGC graded cent, both of which I am grateful to receive. Thank you!

    The ghirsh is beautiful! With my side quest of collecting German States coinage, that wildman is a type I'm looking for as well. Nice coins.

    Besides the items, the kind words and thoughtfulness of my SS, and others, is a testament true to the spirit.

    And yes to my SS. It does. Thank you. I really love the coppers! And of course the silver and candy bars and token and mints and 2x2s and all. You are too generous.

    I never thought I would say I liked "Mint" chocolates.

    Merry Christmas everyone and God bless.
    Joe.

    Opened my Secret Santa gifts this morning. First one contained two very nice uncirculated coins. 1958 D Wheat back and a Bicentennial D Kennedy. Also with a Bicentennial silver proof set! Thank you Secret Santa #1!

    Next gift was an awesome 2009 Lincoln Coin & Chronicles Set. Didn’t have this. Really enjoy the silver Lincoln commemorative dollar. Thanks Secret Santa #2.

    Almost forgot to open my gift this morning because it was in a different room.

    Received a Ike dollar and Roosevelt inauguration medal.

    My SS did a bit of research. Although my gift came with homework, I don’t mind at all. Thank you SS!!!

    I recently started working for Harlan J Berk as a professional numismatist. After 2 years on the US counter, Aaron and I decided to do a podcast on ancient coins, which I know almost nothing about.

    We decided to put my learning on display for the world to see and maybe learn along with.

    I’m sorry for the long-winded post, but I wanted to explain why this gift was NOT from Secret Saturnalia on the ancient side of this site.

    Merry Christmas Everyone and thank you SS for my wonderful gift. I collect US Mint and Proof Sets and did not have the 2020 Innovations $1 Coin Proof set until now.

    Perfect gift thank you SS :)

    Thank you Secret Santa,

    the coin/currency supplies will come in handy. I was just looking at large size sleeves so you save me from having to purchase them! Already filled the dollar coin holder with airtites I had stacked in my safe. They were always falling over so this will help immensely. Always appreciate some silver! :D and the other coins will gladly join the hoard.

    Best Wishes ~ Darryl

    This gift arrived first so I decided to open it last! I love proof coins. The two PF69 coins are perfect. The 1982S proof set will go nicely along side my other proof sets I've acquired as I didn't have it before. I was shocked by the lack of a dollar coin in it because I forgot there was a hiatus of this denomination being minted. But to be honest, I like the mint medal they replaced the SBA with more than the dollar coin anyway. Thanks Secret Santa!
