When I saw this coin I hit buy it now instantly. I try my best not to buy foreign error coins (I think I have 3) but found this one fascinating. This post is about impulse buys and not foreign coins.

I have never seen any countries silver bullion coins struck together at the same time. I would love to find the other half of this two piece set. The other side of this two piece (set) is a portrait of Tesla.

Post a cool impulse buy that you decided to buy instantly when you saw it.

    Great Serbian piece!! It would be amazing to find the other half to make a mated pair! It does fit with your focus of modern Mint errors!

    Here's one of my impulse buys!

    Right! A perfect fit, One ounce of Silver with a major mint error and dated 2022.

    1795 Flowing Hair Half Dollar in FR02. Overton 115, R.5 I was waiting behind someone at US Coins in Houston, Texas, peering through the glass counter, when I noticed it from a distance. I was smitten from the start! Protected in a desirable generation 4.4 holder, the coin has an aesthetic that would make Robert Scot smile! Remember, think like an artist, not an accountant. footnote: The TrueView image is perfect! PCGS photographed the coin without removing it from the holder, so I could experience the TrueView of this little jewel in all its glory. That was kind of them.

    Beautiful coin! I'm glad you were able to pick it up after the waiting!

    I'm guessing you don't want to turn that into a PO01 ;)

    I made a 4 figure impulse buy last week.

    It was at auction and had no thought of buying it. When the lot came up, my impulses jumped up and bought it.

    I may have overpaid but it is super nice.

    So much so, I am considering it as my new avatar :) But it is not a modern, it is like 103 years old :o

    I was thinking you might want to use this one as your avatar :)

    Ya that would be cool as it for sure is one of my favorite numismatic pieces of all time.

    The thing about avatars is that they have to look cool and be recognizable as a very small thumbnail image.

    The San Diego does not fit that bill, the new purchase certain does. It looks fantastic small and big.

    Good points.

    I just noticed that we both have Lincoln avatars. Will that stay the same? :)

    Thank you, but I do not do tokens except the one that I do have being that San Diego.

    I have however bought thousands of coins from that awesome seller in the past.

    They used to have a great connection to someone somewhere :o;)

    Absolutely on impulse! I logged into Heritage’s auction the moment I walked into the house to see where my watched lots were in the queue. Mine were still about 300 lots out and they just happened to be on this one, and still at a price I couldn’t pass up, so I bid immediately… AND WON!

    I had been needing a 1st hairstyle DBC for type and was honestly looking for an exceedingly choice AU. This one is graded 64+ and when I saw it at lot view, it was all there for the grade. For some reason I assumed the price would be too high and had no real intention to bid but there it was… fair warning… and 1 bid takes it home. Unreal.

    That’s a WOW coin! If I identified the coin right at Heritage, it sold for 25% more in 2014. 👍👍 Beautiful!

    Things won't get sorted out for at least a few weeks.

    Nothing more I can do for now as I have most of my (her) ducks in a row.

    So it is business as usual.

    That's about the most unusual coin I can remember seeing. And there are some pretty bizarre Conder tokens! Any idea what body part is supposed to be placed between those two electrodes?? :o

    APPARATUS FOR PRODUCING OZONE.
    SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 568,177, dated September 22, 1896.

    Application filed June 17, 1896. Serial No. 595,927. (No model.)

    To all whom it may concern:

    Be it known that I, NIKOLA TESLA, a citizen of the United States, residing at New York, in the county and State of New York, have invented certain new and useful Improvements in Apparatus for Producing Ozone, of which the following is a specification, reference being had to the drawings accompanying and forming a part of the same.

    The invention subject of my present application has primarily as its object to provide a simple, cheap, and effective apparatus for the production of ozone or such gases as are obtained by the action of high-tension electrical discharges, although in the application to such purposes of the apparatus heretofore invented by me and designed for the production of electric currents of high frequency and potential I have made certain improvements in such apparatus itself which are novel and useful in other and more general applications of the same. I have heretofore shown and described, notably in Patents No. 462,418, dated November 3, 1891, and No. 454,622, dated June 23, 1891, an apparatus devised for the purpose of converting and supplying electrical energy in a form suited for the production of certain novel electrical phenomena which require currents of higher frequency and potential than can readily or even possibly be developed by generators of the ordinary types or by such mechanical appliances as were theretofore known. This apparatus involved means for utilizing the intermittent or oscillating discharge of the accumulated electrical energy of a condenser or a circuit possessing capacity in what may be designated the “working” circuit or that which contains the translating devices or means for utilizing such currents. In my present improvement I have utilized appliances of this general character under conditions and in combination with certain instrumentalities, hereinafter described, which enable me to produce, without difficulty and at very slight expense, ozone in any desired quantities. I would state the apparatus which I have devised for this purpose is capable of other and highly important uses of a similar nature, so but for purposes of the present case I deem it sufficient to describe its operation and effects when used for the purpose of generating ozone.
