I think you should include a URL in you post when you add a new page.

Hi Joe,

If you really think that is necessary, I'll do that.

I thought about doing that at various points in the past. But 98-99% of the time that I add a new page, it is the last page listed in whatever section I am building. So, I always figured that it was kind of redundant and not necessary. Also, unvisited links are in blue, and previously visited links are in purple.

Is simply listing the URL enough, or do I need to also write out a description in addition to posting the URL?

Hi folks,

I just corrected the spelling of Baranowsky in my last page.

As you can see, regarding some of my Genoese coins (both Genoa mint and colonial), the dealer included old tags with the coin. He sent them to me along with the coin. The last coin I posted (Chios, castle Tornese) is one of those coins. On that old tag, someone wrote "B.sky" many years ago. I assume this is an abbreviation for "Baranowsky".

The coin with buckets on poles is very interesting.  I guess it refers to fire fighting?

Hi Joe,

That's an interesting theory. I never thought of that.

I always thought that it is a scene depicting the collection of maple syrup. However, there are 3 problems with this theory. First, the "tree" depicted on the coin appears to be a pine tree ("pine needles"(?) visible at right), not a maple tree. Second, buckets that collect maple syrup are usually placed at the bottom portion of the tree (lower trunk area), not up in the branches. Third, the buckets appear to have holes in them.

You may be right. But if the buckets have holes in them, how can they hold water? Maybe that is just a design on the outside of the buckets?
