    Interesting thread - my first ever thread from September 2008 in the Introductions forum.

    I have no memory whatsoever of making that post, but it led to a whole series of obsessions: US, medieval, hammered, Roman, Japanese Byzantine, Greek... according to the thread, I made a few posts before this one, but this was the first thread I ever created.

    Well that was fun trip back in time. Apparently I joined 30July2014, but didn't make a post until 4May2016 (May the Fourth be with you!).

    In this thread.

    Someone was asking about the old Japanese 100K gold commem. There had been concerns raised about 'too many' on the secondary market and the government suspected counterfeits (there is a NYTimes article linked but it now resides behind a paywall). Some British dealer was accused. But given the price of gold, the face value, and likely redemptions there were many on the market. Ultimately the story poofed away with signs of a non-disclosure settlement (including the British dealer remaining quite active and having been reimbursed for some coin seizures). My speculation is the Japanese government had to to reimburse him and everything locked behind walls of non-disclosure to save face.

    My first ever post was on 25Jul2016 a cross posting here, NGC, and PCGS boards asking about the old INA patterns. So two years for an actual topic and information was gained in minutes. Kind of funny to look at this.

    It actually wasn't that many clicks. I had to click on the last available page several times as well as older posts after that until I finally got to his first. It took no more than a few minutes.
