    (Edit- forgot to put the words "entry post".)

    Thanks.

    This is one of my present favorites. Had a big purge back in March and sold off most of my "trophy" coins, but this appealing little owl from the Spartan colony of Taras is still with me.

    Interesting detail: note that on Athena's headdress, there is a small figure representing the monster Scylla hurling a stone.

    @lordmarcovan thanks for your entry and I love any piece with an owl. They are very mysterious creatures and they look so regal. I have a gold BOBO. It's a 2010 Belarus 50 rouble. I'll post a pic when I grab it again but on the obverse is an owl with small diamond eyes. It's a beauty and so is yours, I love it.

    I need this for my 1909 - 1958 Lincoln Cent Set Registry.

    It's about $65,000. So now you know why I still need it.

    Thanks for the chance

    Not a pocket piece per se, but I keep it at my desk to fiddle with while I work. I found this when I was a teenager on the floor of the supermarket where I worked.

    My #1 gotta have it coin is anything 1793 to 1799 american!

    Collect raw morgans, walkers, mercs, SLQ, barber q. Looking at getting into earlier date coins pre 1900s.

  • BIGWEBBBIGWEBB Posts: 214 ✭✭✭

    @bigtime36 thanks for your entry. I know what you mean I'd give anything to get a nice liberty cap half or flowing hair piece. Such beautiful coins. You got great taste bud.

    Not quite the holy-grail of counterstamps, but definitely one of the most sought after.

    Pancaca is a "cure all" type elixir that was produced from a series of plants and other ingredients (at least in the case of Houck's.) It is also possible to find old bottles with Houcks logo imprinted into the glass. A real cool duo if you can find and display them together.

    This was my first seated half dollar! I got it a few years ago and ever since then I fell in love with the seated design. Thank you for the giveaway.

    This combines two of my favorite categories: errors and odd denominations.

    @Mdcoincollector2003 thanks for your entry. I have a couple of seated halfs and a seated quarter or 2 but that's not to say I don't love them I'm still a rookie in a sense and I just haven't focused on seats yet but soon. Right now I'm on a attributions kick like ddo, 3 legs, 3 1/2 legs whatever I can get my hands on.

    @Testoon thanks for your entry. Errors are something I'm kind of mixing in my collection now because I'm looking for attributions and I find alot of cool errors coins when looking.

    I know it's not a rarity, but I rode my bike to the bank the day these were released to get this one.
    $1 was several days pay selling papers in 1975.

    Yessir, Mr. @BIGWEBB .
    I cannot recall a time when coins were not an interest of mine; but also cannot recall what sparked the interest.
    I wish I had a story to tell about my grandmother giving me a 1917 Walking Liberty Half when I was five.....but besides my great uncle (who was great by the way) I had no other family members interested in coins at all.
    He was probably slick enough to spark my interest by not trying too hard with it.
    He was a decorated WW2 paratrooper and a big strong man.
    When he was 75 I wouldn't have messed with him.
    And few did.

    But he was also kind and gentle to his core.
    I never heard him raise his voice to any of us rotten kids.
    He didn't have to......

    So yeah, thanks for everything, Mr. Richard Snyder, RIP.

  • BIGWEBBBIGWEBB Posts: 214 ✭✭✭

    @mannie gray you know it's like my story. Nobody in my family was a collector of anything much less coins but I did have a "WEIRD" uncle who had a stamp collection at one time so I have no clue where my collecting obsession( that's no exaggeration ) came from. I love every minute of it.
