Hi guys ... well, I'm fairly sure that I'll eventually get around to posting my final 28 coins (I recently had an auction and sold the last of my ancient coin collection), but until then I'd like to say "Hey" to all of you followers/friends/collectors ...



=> Thanks for helping me whenever I needed some coin-advice and/or whenever I needed a sweet coin-friend

Yup, despite the fact that I've never met any of you "physically", you guys have always been there whenever I needed some coin-advice and more importantly, you guys have always been there whenever I needed a life-boost!!

I love you coiners and I hope that I've contributed a wee bit to a few of you guys over the years? ...  I've always had a great time collecting ancient coins ... but the best part was always the "good times"!!

I've had an absolute "gas" collecting coin/ancient-coins throughout my life ...

Hey "PLEASE" don't forget that coin collecting is supposed to be "FUN"

I love you folks

Thanks for sharing your coins (and your humour!) Steve! I hope you're well.

Coin collecting is supposed to be fun as you said. Why else would people spend money to buy money that can't be spent?! :)

     We're only about 1/4 of the way into the season,  so there's plenty of time for you to upload and post your coins.  If you watch the NY Rangers, you'll have even more free time; that's my secret:  they make 20 minutes seem like forever.   

    Be well, Steve, you are a model of optimism and enthusiasm!

Steve,

Wow, what a view indeed. Perhaps the subject like of this thread should be changed to "Steve P's Sweet Gallery and Retirement Roost".

Thanks for the comments, gang

Well, I'm still alive and well (knock-on-wood)

… I sure hope that all of my ol' coin-buddies are also staying safe and are doing their best to weather this nasty virus-storm!
