This is probably the first time I have ever posted in this forum.

Our member and friend trout1105 sent me a care package recently. I was only expecting the one coin (mentioned here), but he told me he was going to include a few things to "fill the gaps" in my Aussie collection (which was only three coins, a 1938 penny, a 1966 Two Cent, and a 1983 Two Cent). Well, I was quite surprised (and humbled) when this showed up at my desk today...



I will get some better photos as time permits.

Thank you again, trout.
Rest in Peace

What a wonderful surprise for you!

We have a lot of generous people here and clearly trout is one of them.

Speaking as one who knows, trout is an extremely generous person.

You are most welcome Jbuck, I know that these coins will be appreciated.
I couldn't see the point in sending just one coin when there was room for more in the package

A someone who can be quite obsessed with efficiency, I will not argue against that.

Just in case anyone is wondering, the mint sets and PCGS slab will remain intact. Shocking, I know!

This is my first slabbed coin. I have said I will eventually have to crack slabs to fill Dansco holes, but I do not have a hole to fill here.

I sent you a slabbed Captain Cook and one in the original plastic case that these Specimen coins were issued in so that you can get a good look and "Feel" of this coin without having to crack the Slobbed coin

I noticed that. I have not taken it out yet...

**shake** **rattle** **tap** **spin** ... ***slide***

Oh, nice!

I think this one will get a 2x2 for the Aussie page and the case will find a spot in the big box with all of my US OGP materials.

Well when the poles reverse, we will almost be on top of the world. Unless they change magnetic definitions.
