I'd partake & maybe help. I'm not up to speed on tech. I'm fairly old school in most things.
Kirkuleez is doing the coin chat forum & he seems to be having difficulty keeping up. I know he hasn't returned my PM.
Pair me with a relatively young and new person, as they are the type that may appreciate a silver coin more than anyone else.
Oh, whomever my secret Santa is, I also appreciate silver. Even the cheap and common variety (ie. Gordian III, Philip II, etc). Just saying. You don't have to get me silver...but I'm just saying.
Be sure to establish rules on how and when delivery will be done. Have Fun, Jim
Not wanting to suggest what to do, but last year I received ancient coins in the CT Secrect Santa thread :
Honestly....I loved them, they challenged me, I had fun with them, and they were completely out of my normal wheelhouse; my SS made me think; you guys think you will disappoint us, you won't.
Regardless of what you all decide to do, you are 'unique' and we all love your contributions.
You think - oh all i have is 'ancients' - you're just wrong man...
That's a very sweet gesture, Sallent (sounds like you're fishin' for your first sweet bronze coin, eh?) => however, JA has done it for a while (Santa may want to keep doing his annual chore?) ... plus, he already knows most of our mailing addresses (and Honest John always does a great job!)
You should probably send a PM and see if he's willing to lend his sleigh to a lawyer!!
Regardless, I am "not" entering this year ... sorry gang, but I find it too stressful/sad to give away one of my coins (my coins are a bit like family pets => I love 'em all and get rattled when I even think of giving one of them away)
However => I love Christmas and giving, so I hope all of you have a great Secret-Santa thread, no matter who ends-up dishing-out orders to Rudolph and the rest of the reindeer gang!!
Cheers and Ho-Ho-Ho
Come on Steve, you know you want to be good and generous again like last year
Same here but different reasons. I plan to send JA some coins for holiday giveaway (assuming he coordinates the effort this year) but don't want to participate in the formal exchange.
I'm planning on joining this year.
If @John Anthony wants to do it, I'm sure he won't mind if we gather some of the names for him and make his job a little easier, and if he doesn't want to do it, I vote @Bing for the position. He is experienced and devoted to this forum.
I'm with you. I've already got a few coins picked it just depends who I get. I've got Ancients & U.S moderns covered.
I'm just not the waiting around type impatient as some would say, lol.
I wasn't a ct member at this time last year & I do love to give. It brings peace to troubled times.
thread posted. I had to get the last auction mailing and Baltimore out of the way. PM away.
C'mon @stevex6, you know your Santa gift has found a good home, and you know you can see it any time you want. Good food, good wine, beer and whisky, fun and coining would be provided too
