I think the time has come to sell my collection

    So far today I've gotten 4 emails for burial insurance. This must be a sign from above that it's time to either sell my collection or make plans to bury it with me. Can one insure a coffin full of coins?

    Sorry! I posted this in the wrong thread. It should have been posted in the no respect thread.

    If U.S. coins, it may be the correct thread.

    My answer though, would be the same. Wait. For both events. I, for one, would miss you if you decide to continue with the pending event.

    Please advise, in advance, with about 7 days notice in advance, of your impending departure.

    Also, please advise names address & phone numbers for your beneficiaries, so that I may contact them after an appropriate amount of time for them to get over their loss.

    I promise to wait at least 3 hours after the interment.

    Sincerely,

    Me.

    PS: I presume you collect US coins. Otherwise I'll have to get a decent reference book. [The cost of which will be deducted from the proceeds, of course.]

    Who says you can't take it with you ? They have a TV show called Strange Inheritance. At the end of the show the lady says "and remember you can't take it with you ". Coins in the coffin.

    no problem, I'll write him a check to put in the coffin. Now he can take it with him.

    You'll have to take some of them with you if your going boating on the Styx.

    And then there'll be the river nymphs, I bet they'll be expensive...

    Make sure everyone considers you a Vampire. No one will go near your grave. We will miss you. But, as others have suggested, please let us know well in advance so we can give best wishes directly.

    It'll be too hot to go boating.

    If you could get yourself killed on a battle field instead of dying a mundane death, *maybe* Freyja will pick you to go to paradise. Surely you'll be able to bring your coins to paradise.

    These coins aren't ours. We are just temporary stewards of them.

    Good. Give me yours now, and avoid the rush.

    I say: let me know where you will be buried, then bury yourself with your collection.

    Hmm, where's that shovel? (Archaeologists do it, why not me?)

    Go the Oceans' 11 route and burn everything. That'll do it.

    Maybe I'll just dump mine into circulation. Imagine the surprise when people start getting seated liberty's in change.

    My plans are as follows. Sell all but my most treasured coins.
    In other words, keep the very favorite ones. Place them in a
    safe deposit box. When I pass, I am cremated and the urn with
    ashes are placed in the SDB. I find this solution acceptable.
    By the way the deaccessioning is in full swing.

    And when the lease on the SDB runs out Tibor and his coins get sold at an abandoned property auction.

    Yes, Archaeologists, those cats that dig the ground the most.
