    Classic case of “the rightmost, most expensive column must be applicable to my coin.”

    You sound like a LOW BALLER.

    Edit: At least you did until @Mainebill chimed in.

    I thought these charades were limited to Etsy, but, it turns out I was wrong.

    Interestingly, by logic, EVEN IF it was worth $3,000, wouldn't it be encapsulated, or in some kind of a holder?

    Uncle Henry’s is always useful. New one out on Thursday. I often pick up my copy for $2. Which gives you a free ad those outside of Maine New Hampshire and Massachusetts have no idea what we’re talking about. A few years ago I sold a wood stove to someone I knew well when he called from my ad in uncle Henry’s

    Then there was that country station that had an on air flea market every Sunday.
    That was a fun show.

    I don’t remember that. Though I never really listened to country. Always been a rock and metal type
