That is a beautiful design.
I joined the NGC Collectors Society in 2005. It was the first time I had ever joined an online forum. One day, I mentioned that I saw this 1969 ANA 3-medal set up for auction, and I really liked it. I placed a fairly high bid of $150, thinking that it would guarantee that I won. When the auction ended, one of the other NGC members beat me out by $2.50. Some of the other members got really mad at "Hoot" because he was thought to be a pretty good guy. I defended him by saying that "He wanted it more than I did." Less than two weeks later, another of the 1969 sets was listed at auction. I guess the owner figured that it would sell for a decent price. I was determined not to lose this time, so I placed a bid of $250. When the auction ended, I was the winner at $51. In the end, Hoot saved me $100, and we became good friends.
