    No..... My daughter is halfway across the country from me, so dropping in and checking the coin out is sort out of the question. Since I wrote this I remembered that three years ago I tucked a hundred dollar bill in a "safe place" in my office for emergency use that has been lost ever since. I am just trying to accept the fact that I enjoyed my memory when I had it and wish I would have been kinder to it when I did have it. My dealer has one set aside for me. I am replacing and forgetting this traumatic experience..... Since forgetting seems so effortless for me these days....

    Look inside page 39 in your Red Book, which you keep hidden behind the corporate HR manual - it's over there on the bookshelf to your right. :D:p

    Randy, you told me earlier this year that you used that $100 bill that you stashed in your office to purchase the Gold Apollo proof coin as you were fascinated with it. Don't you remember? :smuggrin:

    LOL but then there's no one to see me laughing. I'm home alone and loving it. :)

    I don't think you would say I lost it because it did finally turn up, but I had a 1938 proof set disappear for about 10 years. I have a 1796 S-113 in Good that has been missing for over 5 years (broke down and bought another this year. Not easy to do for a coin that has only about 40 known in any grade.)

    Randy ..... Just ask her if you gave her the gold coin. She's family. Be grateful that she's there to ask. Be grateful your able to ask. Don't worry.

    Lost is different from misplaced. Hopefully it shows up from a place where you never thought to look. Did you try looking under the thing that sits in the other corner where you thought you didn't need to look?

    I misplaced a proof 1960 Lg/Sm date cent 20 years ago. I've never found it.

    As soon as I figure out what a buspar is, I will give it a try!

    I'm a daughter and a mother and I think you are selling yourself and your daughter short. Just call her and ask her. She would probably be offended to know you don't trust your relationship enough to be honest with her.

    It's a drug used to treat anxiety. I've never had a use for it.

    I take it that you searched your lounge chair when you got home from work last night. And didn't find the coin. That's because your wife found it and she's waiting for you to ask her about it. LOL

    LOL..... I did! No, the Apollo gold was not there. But there was a surprise deep down in the side between the arm and the seat cushion. There was in fact a 2 1/2 gold Indian in a flip. I almost missed it. I thought I felt something slick and had to lay the chair on its side to get it to dislodge..... Consolation prize I guess.

    Now you are sounding like me Randy! My wife last week found a nice VF Thasos stater in my armchair in the family room. She is usually good about my coin purchases, but gave me a "can't you keep better track of them this, and I don't even want to know how much you paid for it....."
