Thank you. As you can see, a lot of those coins are leftovers from my younger "quantity over quality" days that I'm kind of stuck with for now because their low intrinsic value makes them not worth the energy or time to sell them. I'd give them away as gifts, but I don't know anyone else who's interested in coins.
Rest in Peace

Looks like you spent more time gathering a library than coins. A whole lot of holes to fill, that should keep ya busy.

Once you get to the proper post counts you can contact some here who may be interested. I for one collect the Hard Times tokens. Others stalk the SL's and Barber's. You won't have trouble getting rid of some of those. Stick around for a while.

You have a good collection of books, almost a longer list than your coins. You have followed the advice "buy the book before you buy the coin".

Some folks throw rotten fruit at me for saying so...

...but the difference between a collector and an accumulator is an inventory and a want list.

Wonderful collection from a collector. Congratulations.
