When a member is absent

I won’t cause speculation when I become one of the defunct. I told my nephew to announce it with a giveaway. It’ll be a hoot.

This ain’t a competition.

    So upon your demise, your nephew will be giving your entire collection away? 🤣 Can we see the giveaway prizes now? 🤣 😂

    Don't worry about it. You'll out live all of us anyway! 😉 👍🏻

    I tried to get him into coins. So, I’ll let him execute the collection to others and watch it slip away.

    Don’t check out too soon Fraz!
    Your contributions here are much appreciated (in life).

    My wife has threatened to dump my collection into a Coinstar machine if I don’t get my inventory and directions in order for her….
    That’ll certainly be a bonus for the Coinstar scavengers, if it happens. 😉

    Hopefully I misinterpreted your original post, and we are just talking about an absence from The Collectors Universe and not an absence from The World? Please leave good instructions for your heirs. Sharks smell blood, snakes rule the grass, coin dealers are MOSTLY parasites . Plan accordingly. RGDS!

    Imagine if we Coinstar dumpster divers started slipping things into coin return bins. A cull three cent silver with a readable date, etc. Take a picture of it first, and the first person to have one of their coins reported on here wins!

    No, I don’t feel like it’s soon. When that last where is member x came up not bad news, it was the opportunity to state it. It would have been inappropriate if I had done it when the idea came after ricko and James left us, especially in light of my love for mischief. I do not compare my helpfulness to theirs.

    I also wanted to give ricko’s profile a promotion badge.

    We did that a lot back in the day. Put a bunch of Indian head pennies and buffalos into circulation, we called it salting the population.

    Did you see results other than absence of coin? I’d like to put a 2019 W cent into circulation, but I want it back.

    Hope you're not on the fritz, Fraz! ;)

    I'm just going to tell you now: if you fake you're own death I'm not giving anything back! i think that needs to be one of the unwritten rules.

    Well, you’re signed up now anyway.

    @IkesT — This is not my announcement. It is a suggestion to have an arrangement to notify the forum membership so that one doesn’t end up on a milk carton. The giveawa_ke_ is optional.

    Member absent ? Reminds me of the John Wayne Bobbit saga years ago.

    I could have done a better job with the title.

  • My 3 best coins were given to me by my very dear friend Smilin’ Tom. I’d rather have him back. Wishing you many more years!
