    My family thinks I've got all of my customers hoodwinked because they all give me more money for less in return.

    Coin collecting is the only hobby where you can spend ALL your money and still have money when you're through!

    OK Sweetheart, you flip a coin. If it comes up heads we'll buy the 1916 D Mercury dime. If it comes up tails we'll buy the 1893 Morgan dollar.

    If Miss Moneypenny worked for the CIA instead of MI-6 - would her correct name be Miss Moneycent?

    There's nothing funny about money...well, to the ancients collectors anyway (boy, those people are a tough crowd; but I love 'em anyway). :D:D:D

    Here, & in US coins, we at least get the "occasional" large date/small date, "double" die, road rash, d over s mm, machine doubling, die deterioration, doubled mm, no mm, AT vs NT, and of course the "what is this?" coins to occupy our funny bones. :p:joyful::hilarious::eek::rolleyes:;)

    Here is a classic medalet from the 1884 presidential election.

    That year Grover Cleveland became the first Democrat to win the presidency since James Buchanan in 1856. “Beef takes the presidential chair” refers to Cleveland who was a big, beefy man. It also refers to his home town, Buffalo, New York. “R.R.R. did it” refers to a remark that a preacher, Samuel Burchard, made:

    “We are Republicans and don’t propose to leave our party and identify ourselves with the party whose antecedents have been rum, Romanism and rebellion.”

    This was taken as a direct swipe against the Irish Catholic voters. They came out in droves from Cleveland in New York City which helped him win the election.

    The reverse shows Cleveland lifted to high office on the tail of a snake labeled “United South.” During this period the southern states of the old Confederacy voted for the Democratic candidate, no matter what. “Renegade Press” refers to the papers that didn’t support Cleveland’s opponent, James G. Blaine.

    “Free Trade” refers to the respective party positions. The Republicans supported the protective tariff while the Democrats used the phrase, “for revenue only.”

    I upgraded last year to my second safe. Wife told me if I get a third safe, I can move to the doghouse. I did purchase my third safe two weeks ago..... It resides in my office. God help me if my wife reads CT.
