    I am a huge fan of British colonials, always have been. I've got sets of predecimal Fiji and Seychelles (a really hard one to complete). I've got a complete set of British East Caribbean Territories. I've got a complete set of British Gambia (alright, that is pushing it a bit). I'm short just a few to complete British Malaya and British Malaya and Borneo. I LOVE the early British Jamaica and Mauritius, but these are just so hard to find. The catalog has such low values for so much of this stuff, but it is so hard to find (i.e. British Honduras). Having said all that, I'm too lazy to scan any actual coins! Sorry. The enthusiasm remain though.

    You can almost always count on me for a horse-themed coin! :)
