    Hi, Charlie. Please read the rules; Rules 3-A and 3-C in particular. You are welcome to contact the other party by private message. ~Mod

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

    I just put (3) Nazi era coins in our local Meridian Auction, Idaho that will be available to bid in three or four weeks and I expect them to go for $10-12 dollars ea

    I accumulate wartime issues of every country that we have fought a war with. I also accumulate their stamps. Issues before that period and after that period do not interest me. Eventually they will illustrate a guide to war trophies. We as a nation have already condemned the countries we fought wars against. I would not equate a concentration camp guard with a waffen ss. I could possibly enjoy a conversation with a waffen ss if we could overcome the language barriers. I have met NVA and VC veterans in this country and also ARVN veterans. We have more in common than I have with many Americans. This site discourages political comments so I won't specify the types of Americans that I detest.

    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.

    We killed and relocated the indigenous peoples of this land to expand our nation. Should I not collect US coins? I am a disabled veteran and I don't hate the people I fought aginst. Life goes on and collecting makes my life more pleasurable.

    You can discuss the coins ,but not political aspects, and personal opinions on history or politics. Non-coins and rounds can be discussed if PM and thus bullion, but not if they are political or subject matter that violates the rules. . Again if you insist it is your right , go to an alternate site and do such, it is not wanted here. Thanks. Jim

    The 'law' is on tonite and my comment has been 'splashed'........remember the past people, for if not remembered it could surely be repeated........
