Boy oh boy what fun! 😄

Happy Thanksgiving to you all !

    I'm jealous. Really. I haven't done that since I was about twelve.

    @Abuelo amazing!

    @pruebas these pics were a while a go one day that the coins were home and just like @bidask I felt like putting the coins on the floor to organise them. I took pictures of many series. The Hooknecks, the Iturbides, Republican Gold, CAR...

    @Abuelo its hard to fathom such a collection until you see it laid out like that. Those PCGS slabs go on forever!

    I hope @bidask will show us his collection too!

    I think I’ll need to sign up for Instagram just to follow you.

    this is why slabs were invented - so when the wife and kids are away, you can put all your coins out on the floor and roll around in them naked

    BTW, and I hate to be the one to have to say it, but publicly announcing that you have your coins at home is not a great idea. You never know if criminals might be monitoring the forum, just waiting for an opportunity like this.

    Now I know where all the Ms65 and above Cap and Rays went.

    Leave some for the rest of us!

    While I had a few coins home from SDB, the best part was spending time
    with the family, ESPECIALLY my Grandson.
