*I almost said, "Sorry, Charlie" in there, but it sounded too much like an old Star-Kist Tuna commercial.

Do you collect Roman Imperial...there are some bad guys.
And others may find other aspects of history more interesting. For example, I am in Germany and don't know how many times France and Germany (or any of the countries that later became Germany) have been at war - way too many. Another reason why I like the idea that DE and FR now share the same currency, and even have "joint issue" commems ...
I hear where you are coming from. There is nothing that can make the atrocities that symbol represents as OK...... I went to a gun show not long ago to stock up on some cheap ammo. I was taken back at two large booths set up and selling all manner of Nazi arms, flags, hats, helmets etc. It appalled me to the point that I had to tell that dealer face to face how unacceptable I felt his wares were.
However I rather see it differently when it comes to coinage. As collectors we are but temporary caretakers to these historical artifacts. We all have different reasons for collecting and you have to admit that even in it’s depravity, the coin is eye appealing. And if we turn away from what took place in that time, then we are that much closer to allowing those atrocities to be forgotten. So I wouldn’t harshly judge a collector for owning a piece of history. Even if it was likely the darkest hour of modern history. It is what we are called to do.
