While roaming the streets of old town I came across:




I manage money. I earn money. I save money .
I give away money. I collect money.
I don’t love money . I do love the Lord God.

    Sweet! Last year I went to a cool little shop in Prague while I was there with my boy. There’s something great about coin shops around the world, they all tend to have a similar feel with similar people.

    I'm BACK!!! Used to be Billet7 on the old forum.

    I did see coins at Maison Palombo but nothing of interest
    They do have a nice annual auction that I participated in the past .

    I did buy some chocolates …

    Check out Miguel Lehman at Numisor in the center and Roland Michel at Numisart slightly outside the city.

    Miguel’s great great great grandfather or something was a prominent figure at one of the Spanish mints in Colombia. Can’t recall if it was Nuevo Reino or Popayan. He knows Latin American material very well.

    I did not see anything I wanted to buy

    That’s not to say they did not have nice coins to show ….

    Not sure if you are referring to Maison Palombo, but they generally have exquisite taste!
