    Happy Thanksgiving to all our collector friends in the US! I know that 2020 has been a tough year for everyone – let's hope thing will get better soon!

    Uberitas, the personification of wealth, fruitfulness, and fertility, seems a fitting coin motif to wish everyone a good holiday:
    Rom – Gallienus, Antoninian, Uberitas.png
    Gallienus, Roman Empire, BI antoninian, 260–268 AD, Rome mint. Obv: GALLIENVS AVG; bust of Gallienus, radiate, r. Rev: VBERITAS AVG; Uberitas, draped, standing l., holding purse in r. hand and cornucopiae in l. hand; in field r., E. 22mm, 4.44g. Ref: RIC V Gallienus 287.

    Happy Thanksgiving to my American coin collecting friends! We had ours 6 weeks ago. Had my best year collecting/ and at my work/ and best of all gas is under 90 cents a liter:happy: Getting ready for Winter and snowmobiling (still can go 100 +MPH on trails) which gives you an adrenaline rush.
    Here is a Catevellauni/ AV Stater that symbolizes the harvest/ ear of wheat.... 9e4df5722a5308d39a49b69d03caac3a.jpg

    Happy (but odd) Thanksgiving to all. It's just going to be the two of us this year for the first time in my recent memory. No turkey and stuffing. Instead we will be having a standing rib roast. However, even with all this pandemic crap going on, I can still be thankful for what I have and what I've experienced throughout the year, and I hope all here can find something for which to be thankful. May your horn of plenty be full and overflowing!

    Thanks, Claudius and I hope your Thanksgiving last month was a good one, too. Both our Thanksgiving celebrations are a reminder of how close Canada and the US have always been (except for 1812).
