    @Fereydoon
    Yes, yes I am!
    I’m currently trying to put a set of Seleucid Kings in Tetradrachms, together.
    Right now I’m thru the 300’s and 200’s, and am at Seleucus IV.

    Wow! 20.000...Congratulations, Bing! :)
    I've only gotten as far as one percent of that...
    And a nice coin. It's on my wishlist as well.
    Only 19.788 more posts to go before I can afford it...

    While it is unlikely we will ever meet face to face, I have felt honored to have known you both in the Coin Community days and since the boot brought us to Coin Talk. I do even forgive you for beating me to the 20000 mark before I got there. :inpain: Wanna race to 100,000 likes? At current pace the survivor should get there in five years or so.

    Sooner I think. I even gave you another "like". And thanks for the kind words. I dunno. My son doesn't live far from you in Manassas. I haven't been there in about 3 years, but one day when I do visit, perhaps we can meet up. I've been wanting to sit on Santa's knee again. I am going thru my second childhood (or maybe it's still the first).

    If you play it right, the two can meet in the middle. The old saying is, "The only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys."
