Fun little surprise package

Friend Jason F in North Carolina sent me this semi-surprise package. I say “semi-surprise” because he did tell me he was sending something, but I forgot all about that and thus was totally surprised when it arrived. (Jason is a member here, but since we met in person and keep in touch via text chains, I don't remember his username.)

Inside was a funny little leather pouch with “His Lordship” on it in Old English font. If I remember correctly, Jason says this was found in a collection he had bought.

It’s just big enough for a slab, so the next time I’m carrying a new purchase in my pocket to put in the safe deposit box, it will travel in style!

There was also a nice monogram love token done on an 1861 Seated Liberty dime.


Thanks, Jason! :)

    Very cool.
    Saint Patty's Day Friday had me thinking of me dear old Irish grandmother. I remember her observing a woman who was putting on airs and commenting to me under her breath "There goes his Lordship's Ladyship." :)

    I felt sorry for his Lordship when I heard the story of his long lost love token… Tragic story BTW. Then I remembered that I had come across one amongst some Cull silver coins… presumably since it was holed. Maybe we’ll see it dangling from his iconic Top Hat someday 🤓
