Nice work on the coin too..
Thanks for the feedback. That coin of yours is very nice also.
It is 23 Great Grandchildren and 14 Grandchildren.
I'd hate to see the college tuition bills. Uggg, no more coins!
The parents and grandparents of these little people are discussing just that. I do everything I can to avoid them when the subject comes up.
That's what I do when my wife talks about major projects. Gone like the wind!!

@Inspector43 on the great grandchild! 23? That’s amazing!
As for coins, I have a few of these in good condition but I’ll show you the ugly one because it’s more interesting. This is one of the rare, victories facing the same way reverse variations. Luckily rare sometimes comes cheap if it’s ugly too… $8 total.
