    My dad started me collecting coins when I was 6 years old, soon to be 60 years ago. In the 1960s (I think), I bought all the Whitman Australian coin folders and worked on them diligently, sourcing from dealers' 10 cent foreign coin boxes. An Australian pen-pal visited our family in 1963 and we had a marvelous time; he arrived in February, just in time for the biggest blizzard in 25 years.

    Now I have come to believe that the US dollar is going to suffer hyperinflation, and I plan to buy silver (Canadian Maple Leafs) starting in a few weeks, after I see what's left over from the taxman.

    Doug,

    Welcome on board.

    My father hails from your neck of the woods.

    Go the Buckeye state & the Lickin River.

    Sold some Columbus family land (30 acres) about 1 year ago.

    Remember visiting there about 20 years ago.

    Happy friendly memories.

    Welcome Doug

    If you are a Buckeye fan, I am afraid you are going to be very depressed after the Sugar Bowl. :D

    Welcome to the board Doug. Hope you get a white Christmas, which would be a dream for me as I'm from North Queensland where it's currently 34 and very humid (at least it's not raining - but it will again shortly I'm sure :( )
