Have any of you had this experience? You are searching for your sunglasses and you find you've been wearing them, pushed up on your forehead the whole time, Or, you can't find your wallet and you suddenly realize it is in your pocket. If so, you can probably understand how this happened.
About a week ago, I started panicking when one of my prize chop marked coins could not be found. I looked EVERYWHERE, I even spoke to a friend on this board about the lost coin and thought, maybe I left it at the coin club meeting during show and tell and somebody stole it. I was going crazy, thinking I did not want to buy coins again until it was found and just feeling generally miserable about the lost coin. As an aside, I even took the coin out of my NGC Collectors Society Custom Set because I did not feel good about having missing, possibly lost, coin displayed to the world.
TODAY, I found it, in plain sight, in the very NGC Slab Box where it is always located. Somehow, I did not recognize it, and just started searching everywhere else after my inventory did not reveal the coin in its normal box. OMG, I am actually mortified at myself, so much wasted energy looking for something that was never missing. Thank Goodness I did not contact the Club President and ask her to request an anonymous return of the coin. It is a small club and I would have never felt good about going there again. Finally, Thanks My Friend, for giving me some comfort while I was in a major freakout.
Have you had a similar thing happen? if so, let me know, so I feel less an insufficiently_thoughtful_person.
