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.

Oh well ... I feel like I have to post a coin-song with their (ACDC's) next amazingly cool lead-singer ... hey, he's no Bon Scott, but it was awesome to see that they came back with a vengeance and continued to be my favourite band!

Yup, seems like Saturday night is shapin' up to be a sippin' night as well ...

=> Coin-On!!
