Where are the posts?

Post by Bill in Burl » Sat Mar 21, 2020 6:43 pm

With everyone essentially stuck at home, I'm surprised that there aren't more folks sitting on their computer and passing a little info or questions about coins that they didn't have time to before.

Your right" Bill in Burl" I wish i had more input to this site but i dont trust myself to give anyone info on coin or currency colllecting. Listening to TV reports on the economy of the world i would think it might be difficult times for a lot of people to invest in coins, in fact i would not be surprised if some are not pushed into selling off some stuff to make ends meet. I would ask that anyone out there not take advantage of anyone on hard times , some are truly going to need as much return on their sales as they can get.
I dont have much input but i check this site daily and read everything that is posted, Thanks Keep it coming.

I'm *very* fortunate in that my job is stable and, as I'm not blowing nearly as much money on other things, I've been scouring ebay and other sites for new acquisitions. Have recently purchased an 1873 Newfound 5 cent in F-12. This completes that year of 5 cents for me - which was a tough one as they are some rare coins. So, pleased about that.

Totally get what you are both saying. It's a difficult time and going to be this way for a while. I don't want to take away from from the hardships we're all facing but we need to make sure that we continue to stay mentally strong, with almost everything shut down there's only so much we have in our control. We need to communicate about what we are passionate about, lets keep the mind going cause you know what they say about idle mind.

We should all have time, adding to what Bill mentioned about questions, lets open up to:
- sharing pics of some of you coins/bills in your collection (rare, cool, different...)
- story about a good buy
- story about how you got something
- story about how you inherited something
......whatever else

Hope we can get some replies, even from those who don't normally post :wink:

I have been on this site for years, but this is my first day posting. Bill, I've read your posts with interest and will soon post some items with pics in the tokens area.
But I have been squirreled away sorting, grading and classifying my collection since Covid hit, and have benefited greatly from posts on this site. Thank you all for your insights.
I truly hope that Canadians continue to isolate themselves for everyone's protection. I also echo the sentiment that now is not the time to take advantage of people, as hardship may be motivating many to sell their cherished items.
To all....take care
