Hi Steve,
Returning to your earlier post ...
Holy Crap => did any of you coiners happen to watch yesterday's epic NFL playoff games?
Wow, both of those playoff finals were amazing! (good times)
So, the upcoming Super Bowl is between the young-gun LA Rams versus the ol' horse-guided New England Patriots ... man, this should/could be an epic match-up (TBD)
Ummm, here are a couple of examples ... please feel free to post any appropriate examples (I like seeing other people's coin)

Well, "hammered" accounts for some aspect of almost all of my own coin purchases.....  Certainly not limited to method of fabrication, although, perhaps, that's the most dignified aspect.

Thanks for the comments, gang

... oh and yes, most of my expensive coins and/or impulsive purchases were made while sipping and listening to my coin-tunes (*sigh*)
