    Can anyone think of some "good" questions to ask? I'll begin.

    1) How do you spell "double die"?

    2) Which is larger? A nickle or a quater?

    3) Of the seven denominations, $1 - $2 - $5 - $10 - $20 - $50 - $100, which one will most likely get you in trouble at a Baltimore Mickey D's?

    4) Which coin is a favorite at Thom McAn's?

    5) Who designed the Morgan dollar?

    Is this "shinny" coin a proof?

    When I was "new" I had to go to the library for information. Then, simple things like spelling and sentence structure were necessities.

    Should I invest in the book "Strike It Rich With Pocket Change"?

    Many have tried....but you can't fix stupid! You cannot educate someone who knows it all! And what is even more a travesty are members here offering advice who are just as clueless, as the dummy asking the question.
    Chris you , and I are from a different time.
    Correct we had no one but ourself to obtain the information we needed to answer the question at hand.
    Yes we all were newbies at one time but a time where where everything had value, coins, money in general, knowlege, respect, politeness, mannors in general.
    A sense that no one owed us anything....but the drive to learn to improve ourselves.
    No entitlement but made to understand at a young age theres no free lunch!
    But like my first sentence you can't fix can only hope sooner or later one grey cell will fire.

    If somebody sat on a to-may-to, I don't think there would be anything left of it.
