    National Gold Bank Notes for $400.00 to $500.00? I'd rather have two of those than paying $850.00 for a 16-D Mercury Dime. Granted, you'd probably be able to get a far better 16-D in 1974 than in 2020.

    Then again, you could always have the misfortune of having a time machine that can only travel between November 2020 and November 1974. At that point, you might as well make the best of your situation.

    I'd rather go ahead in time and get the numbers when the Powerball has reached $500 million or so.

    Go back in time to swipe right instead of left when having missed the mouse.

    Go back and invest heavily in Wang Computers and Global Crossing. History repeats itself, right?

    I'd go to March 20th 2010.... At which point, I'd take that $850.00 and buy 170,000 BTC (Bitcoin) at $0.005 each. Which would be worth around $3,000,000,000.00 today.

    What are you going to take back with you to buy it? I guess you could take the time to track down $850 in 1965 - 73 quarters.

    Yeah, but you'd have to have banknotes from the period to pay for it. How much would a $5 silver certificate from the period set you back to buy a BU roll of 1916-Ds?

    Why banknotes? Why not 5 circulated common date morgans? And where in my post did I mention a roll?

    I don't know if anyone ever saw "Somewhere In Time" with Christopher Reeve, but he wanted to go to the past to meet with a girl of his dream. He changed his clothes to those of the era, cut his hair, and purchased coins of that era. Don't read the rest of my entry if you don't want to know the ending......
    Anyway, he got the girl to fall in love with him, but when she laughed at the clothes he was wearing, he started showing off how good it was, but then he pulled a coin from one of his pockets which was a coin from his time...1980 and was sucked back to his real time. It's a great movie for those that liked Christopher Reeve and time travel.

    God gave me what he gave me. I'm here, I'm alive, and I'm thankful. In my opinion. Thanks for the post. Happy Holidays
