Met a forum member yesterday for the first time.

Met @Tibor What a great day Louie and I had yesterday. As Louie lives within 20 minutes of where I grew up it was truly a no brainer. We had lunch and discussed coins for a length of time. Found we both had experienced the same coin shop 60 years ago Kingsport Hobby Shop and Mel's Coin and Stamp in Johnson City, TN is where I bought my first 32 d & s Washington Quarters in 1972 from Mel, who I found is still active. While we do not collect the same series, we enjoyed our conversations in many numismatic terms. The waitress came to our table 4 times only to be told, not yet. Thank you Louie for the engaging visit.

    There are some damn fine folks on this board ... more than a few I can legitimately call friends both here and face-to-face in the off-line world. Probably a few more I'll be able to say that about if we ever get to the same place at the same time.

    That's awesome I never met anyone from here in person but feel like I have known some since childhood, as previously said there are some great people here who I hope one day are paths may cross how did you find out @Tibor lives near the town of your ute (lol youth).

    Working on the 2nd Lincoln Cent Album, I found Tibor's address in order to send some Lincolns and Lo and Behold he lived where I went to school from 5th grade though college. So cool. Now when I go to meet him again, perhaps we can get @erwindoc to accompany us. Be great.

    I’d be tempted to do a road trip if you two guys are getting together!
