Yes, Alex is right,
I agree, coincidences have a strange way,
I don't know how many owners it had before it escaped to me?!?

Anyway, I'm glad it turned out that way...

Regards

You'd have to specialize in Carausius I think to have an opinion.  Plus, as you said, the title and lack of information doesn't help.  Unfortunately my mod permissions don't allow me to move it to the Fake section.

Hi Joe,

It does look as though your coin and my coin are one and the same now that I have looked at the two images more closely. If so I am pleased to know that it has gone to a good home.  ;D

It is cheap and inexpensive to just put up your own webserver to store your images, and over time it is more stable than any commercial offerings.   You just connect an apache webserver to the wall and assign and ip address to it.  The link I posted to you have my coin images going back to 2000... before the twin Towers were destroyed.

Hi RS,

Thanks for the information. I wasn't aware that I could do that.

Of course, this information is too late. My website is now about 98% done.

Hi, Alex,

 The two coins (pictures) are very similar and I may have bought your coin last year at a German auction...

  Sweet... ;) :) +++ ;D

  Thanks for the information

Wow, I thought I had a lot of Lindgren plate coins, but you must have at least several dozen!)

Hi CJJ,

Thanks for the positive comment. :)

I am not 100% certain, but offhand, I think I purchased about 200 coins from Mr. Lindgren. Of course, I purchased all of them (except for one) directly from him before he passed away. I spoke to Mr. Lindgren on the phone numerous times. He was always so full of information. When I spoke to him, I felt like I was back in college again.

I wish I had more resources (money) back then to purchase even more coins from Mr. Lindgren. There are so many that "got away" because I just couldn't afford to buy any more. To this day, I still routinely think about 5 or 6 of his coins that "got away". And it really bugs me.
