It is my Sweden 1 daler plate money from 1746.

But those don't fit in gum ball machines you know.



Possibly my favorites.
However, not a coin but a coin book.

Those Mercury dimes are from my set #1, all FSB except one, the 18S.

This is my favourite coin, because it was given to me by my Father and started my interest in coins. My Father found it in stream at the bottom of his garden, when he was a young boy.

My avatar:
Gold stater, Philip 11 of Macedon struck in Pella (356 336 BC) - mm thunderbolt below horses (Northern Greece - I have visited the area)
Obv.: Apollo facing right.
Rev.: Apollo driving a biga (two horse chariot) across the sky to the right.
provenance: Bought from Spinks, London 1978, for 360.

Historically important, because it was the first gold coin in ancient times, have the status of large scale 'international' circulation.


I must admit: I am rather partial to my 1927 St Gaudens Double Eagle, arguably the best design ever to appear on a gold coin. The design is the sole reason I bought it in 1982, for AU$ 600.

Your Father wasn't from Australia, was he?

No he wasn't. Born in U.K., just like me. :)

Morgan dug near a beautiful huge Catholic Church in the country, where folks came from far away to attend mass. Many a large polish picnic in the back over the last 125 years. In two visits I had also dug silver jewelry, Mercury dimes, Barber, Washington and dozens of wheat. Ten-acre site that had been hunted heavily since the 80's at least...

Peace dug between the ball diamond and 30's concession stand, about 2" deep. Can't believe it was missed by others - I almost passed it over because the signal hit similar to that of a smashed aluminum can.
When I listen to LED ZEPPELIN...so do my neighbors...
Roll hunting since '77
Dirt fishing since '72
