Hey, I decided to keep this baby for myself!

Yah, I figured that I'd better keep at least one of my cool coins, eh?

Whew! Thank you. I was starting to have withdrawal symptoms!
Awesomeness of the Troas is duly noted, but I especially like the reverse on the Volusian. Excellent detail, very interesting type.

Steve P's enthusiasm should be bottled,  or at least be a brunch option.
Why any ambitious office holder would associate with a rat is mystifying at best.

Yup, eventually we'll be moving from frigid cold northern Manitoba to the smokin' hot interior of BC (and lovin' it)
