This could be fun and a learning experience

I’ll start. 1854. The Kansas- Nebraska Act was enacted by Stephen A. Douglas. This piece of legislation probably was the single biggest impetus for sparking the Civil War

Fellas, leave the tight pants to the ladies. If I can count the coins in your pockets you better use them to call a tailor. Stay thirsty my friends......

    ...just dropping in...today, on the 18th, I skyrocketed my old-school Cleveland 60• (solid beryllium copper head) 109 yards onto the green and then nailed a 20 footer for bird ;)

    ...my pops followed Payne in 92’ at the Olympic Club and he was using that club so he bought one shortly afterward...it ended up in my bag 20 years ago and I wouldn’t trade her for anything!

    FYI: I only collect naturally toned coins with original surfaces and nothing else, trust me nothing else!
    OK with one exception!

    Syracuse (modern day Sicily) decadrachm, 400 BC. There were no photos at the time - this was the media (and fixed stuff like statues, frescoes, etc.).

    Maria Callas, 1958. Timeless art, originating from Greece (born in NYC, though!).
    (I was trying to think of a modern Greek goddess, without it being Jennifer Anniston).

    Fountain of Arethusa, modern times.

    ParadiseFound, those are very iconic images. A good friend of mine is a grand-daughter of one of the soldiers in the Iwo Jima flag picture! Each of those soldiers were humble gentlemen, risking their lives for our freedom!!

    A part of his plane flew the first 500 coins from the San Francisco mint can be seen in the left background.

    What part of his plane flew the coins?

    I would think it would take ALL of the plane to fly?

    Probably true based on the weight:

    The San Francisco Mint struck 50,000 Vancouver’s, plus 28 assay coins on August 1, 1925. On the same day, 1,378 pounds of these coins were shipped by air to Vancouver by Lt. Oakley G. Kelly, U.S.A, flight commander of the Vancouver Pearson Field Barracks.

    On June 26, Congress amends the Fair Labor Standards Act, further limiting the workweek to 40 hours. A few months later, on October 24, the law goes into effect.

    Government orders citizens to turn in gold coins, gold bullion, and gold certificates.
