    Paddy54 Hey brother can you spare a half dime?

    Well this morning I got up early wanted to see one of my best dealers friends. Len always gives me great prices and deals. So I met him at the flea market up in Joppa Md.
    Len had his tables set up ,a few of his regulars were there already when I rolled in.
    Plus I had to hit his love and CWT tokens....for a good look.

    Len has trusted me for years many times asking me to watch his table, at a show while he left the room.
    He allows me to go though his inventory to hunt my varieties. Well this morning hunting indians I opened his binder and found an 1873 closed 3 broken D ddo :) he had it marked at 75 $!
    So as always Len like ill take $60 on the 73....Im like nope....he like you dont like the price....I said nope he's like what do you think is fair? I'm like well at least another $425 added to the $75 so like $500 is more like it.:)
    Yup the 73 ddo in vf and of course he offered it to me...I have 1 so I didn't need it...and I wasn't going to take advantage of a good friend. Who always throws me a discount....
    But beware I am the hunter! images.jpeg.jpg

    If it was any old dealer who I had no relationship with, I'd cherry pick that all day. What you have though is a friendship and there is no amount of money I'd cherry pick that for.

    PS, Glad you see you back buddy :)

    You did his homework for him, but you didn't take advantage. Very respectable. Friends helping friends. That's what cements a relationship. The good Lord watches down on folks like you, dear fellow.
