I have been outta pocket for a bit as when you’re 65, you don’t do, look, or act like a “65” should. Feel like more of an au-55 at best. And I’m not talking about the age. Talking about the body grade.
I had a skateboard accident recently and was prodded to take a trip to ER the next day by my girlfriend. Against my wishes of course. She actually witnessed the crash. Said I appeared to be airborne for minutes. Like a typical stupid guy, I turned down her offer for a ride back to the house a quarter mile away. Only broke my shades, and a small cut over the left eye. What followed was CT and X-ray of my whole left side. Partially dislocated shoulder. Three bruised ribs. One cracked rib. And lastly with the concussion, they found a five mm aneurism that had just begun to leak.
Lisa actually saved my life. So glad I’m still here to continue to blow money on this crazy wonderful hobby of kings.
Oh, and also my daughter in NYC gave birth to my twin grandsons one week ago Friday night 7/5/19. I’ve had a bunch going on and I’m just glad to be alive and be in Florida.
None of this is about coins except the pic. Thank you for your patience. This is a coin from my favorite branch mint in the ten dollar series. 1854-O Small Date. And one that is closer to my body grade than a “65”. Yea... sure.. XF-45 is about my top condition. Compared to my age. Some luster still remains on this 165 year old ten. Also is a coin minted in the south 100 years before my birth year. And once I get these NGC tens in one place, get my decent photos, then back on here they will go.
Last but not least, I’d like to thank all of you that have messaged me, on a post or two of late. Also the comments here. I’m loving hearing from each of you. You that I knew from 2008 onward, along with the new young guns.
Keep this great thing going!!!
