    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Extraordinarily GENEROUS Seller.. Unlike most that you find ..... Seriously, a lovely coin... There was a high grade slabbed example on ebay that became unavailable about a month or two ago.... I was watching it, but it was out of my price range..... Was that this specimen???

    Mark Rasmussen's seemingly mysterious website

    It's like going into a brick and mortar store (selling anything), and everything is all over the place with no semblance of order. Extraordinarily difficult to find anything without perusing every aisle. And wasting valuable time..

    My father was stationed there during the war..... Many fond memories of the area... They had a temporary exhibition a few years ago, that was supposed to be converted to a smaller permanent display, about its role during the war .. My dad sent them some pictures, his library card, and some other memorabilia on loan for the duration.... Not sure if it still exists though. I haven't heard back from them recently, and he asks me periodically about it. (He's 99, my mom 95, married 73 years this Oct 12). If anyone visits Bletchley Park, I'd appreciate an update...

    One possible option might be to publish it on a cd, accessing as on a website, and allowing for expansion and updates. Digital images would be far superior that way than when imaged in a book....

    One would think that, siblings or not, they would probably want to be alone with each other. They would have to remake 7 Brides for 7 Brothers as My One and Only.....

    This is similar in many respects, however I consider it to be a 5/5... I'm not sure that yours isn't a 5/5 too... That being said, I'll defer to John and Ian for a more definitive response....

    Just the one.... For full disclosure, once I checked it off my list, I didn't actively look for more.... However it did take me awhile to find this specimen... Chingford or Alfnail might have more information regarding population... Its existence proves that they do exist though... Good Hunting.....

    I'll check it out like an EAGLE eye HAWK If it's nice, I'll be RAVEN about it. I'm just BATS about them. I might have to DUCK if it flies overhead though.. The price would have to be fair to you however, inasmuch as I would not want to be ROBIN you. Just as I would not want it to be overpriced, as I am not some PIGEON waiting to be plucked like some CHICKEN.

    Rare coin lost in post

    Think positive Richard, most likely it will eventually get there, don't know when however. I know the feeling.... Top 3 stories that come to mind right now. I lost an F-76 that way many years ago.... The seller tossed it in loose in an envelope where it rattled around and punched a hole in the side where it slipped out.... I was the proud recipient of an empty envelope. The F-76 was purchased from a non coin dealer on ebay who did not know how to properly ship a coin.... As infuriating as those who go to the other extreme and overly secure the coin DIRECTLY to a cardboard sheet with an exuberantly abundant supply of tape.. I only lost a few dollars, but I missed out on a substantial upgrade.... as well as the loss to the collecting community..... I can only hope that it was found by some who knew what it was so that it would not be totally lost and might surface again one day.....  C'est la vie. ....  I mention this ONLY as a contrast to your coin which was properly packed. Similarly, with a happier outcome, was an F-103 that went missing in December, in the midst of the Christmas rush..... I received the missing package in a USPS body bag about 8 months later with the coin still intact inside. The outer packaging was all torn up. Fortunately the seller knew what the coin was, knew how to properly package it to survive mishandling, and had images posted of it, should it appear anywhere else in the future..... Not numismatically related however, was the time I sent 2 Christmas cards to the EXACT SAME ADDRESS, a friend of mine and a gentleman who lived in her basement apartment. She received her card the day after I mailed it. He was miffed because he never received a card. I told him that I had sent him one at the same time, but I'm sure he had his doubts. Fast forward to the following September or October, and I received the card back as UNDELIVERABLE, along with postmark from around the country, Texas, California, Nevada, Illinois, New Jersey, of course New York, etc. We all had a good laugh at the well traveled card. Point being, short of being totally destroyed, it will most likely eventually turn up, either with the proper recipient, or with the sender, you.... As an aside, although it is uninsured and more expensive, I prefer to ship more valuable sales by FedEx, as it is tracked at every stage and generally arrives within 2-3 days. This also applies when I want to ensure that something that I ordered safely arrives. Nothing is perfect, but Fedex seems to offer the best odds. And, although I never pursued it, I believe you can purchase 3rd party insurance for shipments.

    Of course another interpretation could be that the person is WEARING the barrel and shooting the fish in a stream, ocean, river, lake (any body of water containing said fish)... he/she might need to be concerned about getting a splinter though...

    Stacks had a foreign coin division called Coin Galleries... perhaps it was sold by them and not Stacks directly...
