No worries about me forcing. I just have a lot of different oddities on coins from over 25-30 years of doing this hobby. I just have a lot of weird questions. Back in those days maybe not for everyone but for me I just thought the coin was an oddity. Just wrote it down and put them aside. Not the coins that was (obviously damaged.) Back in the day I didn't have access to so much information as is what available today.
You've been doing this much longer than I have and I applaud you and others that were numismatist before the web, I know that many here were. Because of the internet, I have had a leg up from the beginning and it has allowed me to learn at a faster rate, with so much at my fingertips. There are certain aspects that the old school version of study gives one strength though, so ask away and if I can help I will. I may lean on your old school at some points too.
