It may be 35K, but it has FREE SHIPPING!!
I've always thought it odd that in numismatic and philatelic circles great value gets assigned to ERRORS.I could never get involved in anything that basically negative, but I certainly wouldn't mind cashing in, if one of these rarities slipped into my hands by accident. ;-)
Ft, Interesting isn't it. Well back in 1965, when I was 15 and working the counter at McDonalds (Before becoming the best grill man they'd ever known) Either I or the guy next to me cracked open a roll of pennies. There inside were 2 penny blanks each struck half on one of the blanks and half on the other. The manager let us purchase them for a penny apiece. He kept on and I kept one. Where it is now I have no idea, but I think that a person having both of them in uncirculated condition might just be worth something.I threw so much value away as a kid. Baseball cards, etc. If I could go back, I'd be gobbling up all that kind of stuff and packing it away, and that would be one hell of a retirement stash.
Money for boo boos. Yeah, that's a great 401K stash /sarcasm off.
Cube, unreal what people (wealthy people) spend money on. I caught one of those hollywood pawn shop episodes once. A girl walked in and wanted something unique that she could display in her house (and feel all special about I guess), and the guy asked her how much she wanted to spend. She said around $110k. He took her into a 'special room' with 'special things' and presented her a silver plate with some sort of molded design made by Picasso, and oddly enough it was Only 110k. She bought it.Imagine how much of that stuff goes on.We should all pitch in and buy a pawn shop in hollywood.
I wonder how so many idiots have so much money to waste? What am I missing?
Cube, one of the other fascinating subjects. What comes to mind here is the posit - Wonder what God thinks of money? Look at who he gives it to."That's the best I got right now.
What kind of idiot would fork over $35 large for this crap? Same kind of idiot who paid a king's ransom for a Dutch tulip bulb several centuries ago in March of 1637.
Fredd, That was me. And the tulips are still growing out back !
Those must be some damn fine tulips.
Mr. AOW will be going to a coin show this weekend and will find out if this information is reliable.Meanwhile, he's looking at some of his numismatics books to see if there's any reference to this particular error.
AOW, Thanks! I'd love to hear the answer.
will search my quarter pileC-CS
C-CS, Good Luck !
