Sneak Peek

Not too bad for something that turned up in a pile of junk, eh?

Here’s a sneak peek at just one of the many hundreds of really cool and very richly rewarding coins that popped up in last night’s “Barf Bag” search — the coins were discards from other searches, deemed so miserable that they ended up in a bin and eventually in a bag, which I opened and am currently in the process of searching.

I’ve found a few 1924-d, some 1909 VDB and two 1909-s that have seen better days, but they’re readable enough to sell, although in this case, I’m not offering this grouping for sale — it’s intended as an example of what someone can accomplish in a single night, armed only with coin-knowledge and a taste for punishment.

Finding the goodies among the trash is sort of like dumpster-diving, and in a way, it bears some resemblance to it.

One thing that happens in a search like this, you never know what’s going to turn up.

It doesn’t matter whether the source of your search coins is a personal collection, institutional collection, just a bunch of coins that piled up in a jar somehow, or you bought them as a grouping of folders, or as a bag or box or rolls.

The end effect is the same — there’s some searching to be done. Continue reading

Mindfulness And High Attention — MaHa

$45,000 page from Mint State Lincoln Set.

“Maha” means “Mindfulness And High Attention in my book, but in the Hindu scriptures it means “Great” or “Big”, as in “Big Ruler” or “Big Spiritual Guy”, as in “Mahabharata” and “Mahatma”, respectively, not to mention “Matahari”, which has absolutely nothing to do with the subject, anyway — besides, she was framed.

Okay, forget about Matahari. So what is “MaHa”, and how does it affect you?

MaHa is Mindfulness And High Attention. It is a spiritual technology that uses Special Directed Attention to accomplish its goals, which is to make you more aware, more conscious, more enlightened, more awake, more sensing and feeling and more dedicated to life beyond the box.

You will instantly FEEL BETTER and more centered, more poised, more assured and more certain. A profound CALM and SENSE OF ACCOMPLISHMENT and SERENITY will come over you and stay around you in a protective bubble of peace and harmony.

You will experience a freedom from the time-binding of space-time, due to the time-bending properties of the coinage you are handling, with the quantum-entanglement connection to the time-frame of the coin.

My “MS-63 RED GEM” vintage Wheat-Backed Lincoln Cents are called “Clear-Channel Time-Benders”. The sense of freedom from the time-frame gives you a certainty on your soul-travel through ENDLESS time and space.

You will feel an INSTANT sense of SPIRITUAL FREEDOM from the confines of the organic world, or your money back. Come to think of it, you’re buying money, so you already HAVE your money back!

Jeez, you get a refund even if you’re satisfied??? You bet you do, and there’s even more payoff than that.

If you carry out your Coinology Course Assignments correctly, you will see a “feedback effect” — a definite visible and spendable result of your efforts, mainly in the form of money, specifically an income derived from the sale and trade of coins garnered through the skill-building exercises of Coinology, plus all the other invisible benefits of the practice, including just feeling better about yourself and your life and the world in which you find yourself living and surviving.

I Am A Post Office, It’s Your Call!!!

The other day, Claude mentioned that probably the best chance we have of high-level marketing and merchandising success in this marketplace would be my leggings, and I’m working tonight to get something together for a sales crew.

I’ve also gotten a large number of U.S. Postage Stamps up, but we can expect about a week’s delay in getting them approved by the Post Office — they review every stamp that comes through, and may or may not approve mine, based on I’m not sure what standards, except for the obvious.

Wynton Marsalis & Ted Nash & Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra

I was determined to get to the concert venue to see the installation, and maybe run into Wynton Marsalis and Ted Nash, and by golly, to everyone’s surprise including my own, I actually made it into town in late afternoon — about 3:30 — and sure enough, ran into many old friends at the jazz venue, many musicians, photographers, artists and more, all there to see the show. I knew I wouldn’t be able to remain, but stayed awhile, long enough to meet with Ted Nash, Julie Baker and a few other old friends (“old friends” never sounds right — they’re young friends from long ago…dang if that don’t sound no better). The band arrived late, after my energy ran out at about 6:30, a very long time in town for my tired old frame. So, I’ll meet you in the ICW in a few minutes from now, where you’ll see a wonderful collection of very famous art — I’m making a video catalog of the art collections that are up for sale for an art-dealer friend…actually two friends, with quite different interests; one specializes in Old Masters — not the cigars, the painters — and the other in Modern & Contemporary. You’ll be seeing a lot of museum-grade original works by everyone from Renoir to Rauschenberg.

See You At The Top!!!
