I will travel by air plane dear friend. So I am not allowed to transport liquids in my luggage... You have to visit me here in the Ruhrgebiet in order to have some Broughton Ale :D

I  Have a 24hr head start on @ChKy but it does get quite busy there anyway, a robbery there last year and the year before, so let's see what happens this year, all were caught both times within an hour

I have been after a half decent Lima Half crown for a while and although everyone says they are very common they have rarely popped up in a decent grade on ebay, coin fairs etc. I only had 2 early milled coins, one of which was from Rob but I am trying to make the transition. This is my 3rd early milled.

Deeper and deeper, older and older he goes! He'll not be satisfied with just 'milling' around the numismatic door, very soon he's gonna find himself 'hammering' on it! :)

They all come to the dark side eventually B) Spoke to @NRP on the Baldwins table at the Munich fair yesterday, nice to meet some of these people we hear so much from and about from the forum and various other venues, he even took a coin off my hands for their May auction, it was actually pretty quiet there on Saturday but Munich people are creatures of habit, no shops open on Sundays so they all go shopping Saturday, i'd expect it to be busier today.

Have to go and pick up @ChKy in 90 mins
