    Just Bob got a reaction from rons in Collecting.... it's all based on being a fan!!   
    In my opinion, no, it would not be cleaning. It would be conservation.
    I collect Three Stooges memorabilia.

    When dealing with the public, run-ins like this are inevitable. Hopefully, they are few, and far between.

    I couldn't help but chuckle, seeing the awards announcement ranking right up there with Christmas and your anniversary.
    I am glad your family is doing so well. After what you guys have been through, you deserve some good times.

    No. The further removed from hard times like the Great Depression a generation is, the less prepared (or concerned) they seem to be for hard times. Those of us whose grandparents and parents grew up having to struggle just to get by tend to think more like the ant.

    Just Bob got a reaction from Revenant in There’s a good chance that I might have overpaid for this… but I did it anyway!   
    Looks to me as if the "pros" far outweigh the "cons." I wouldn't give that extra few dollars another thought.
    Nice pick-up. You did good.

    I agree. It doesn't seem possible that he is already a year old.
    He looks a lot like you, too.
    I bet he turns out to be a coin nerd.

    Just Bob got a reaction from rons in my coin chuckle for the day   
    Yeah, that same thing happened to me a while back. Made an offer about 5 dollars below the selling price - which was around 50 bucks - and the seller countered with an offer less than a dollar below the original price.
    No thanks.

    Just Bob got a reaction from Revenant in The Anniversary Purchase   
    I have a slightly different definition. Years ago, a popular way to store a coin collection was in a cabinet with segmented drawers that were lined with felt. Opening and closing the drawers caused the coins within to slide back and forth, causing ever-so-slight wear on whichever side was on the bottom.
