The new site is okay.
I will keep up my pursuit of 78S.

The thought of yet another new name and pw doesn't work well with my little brain. So I stick with the old one.

The name still fits, so I'm still wearing it.

Paralyse here (Adam), long time habitué at CCF and eternal VW lurker.

I like the new forum a lot and should now be able to post a lot more as a result ;)

I have recently sold off some of my PCGS/SSDC Registry Morgans (not by choice) - 1885-CC, 2 1884-CC's, 1895-O, 1892-CC, and a spare 1878-S and 1904-O, but as is often the case, I can't seem to avoid these lovely ladies -- just won a probable 1890-P VAM 25A last night.

I collect everything, but my main passions are silver Washington quarters, Morgans of course, early American copper & German States coins/medals. I've been at this for 25+ years (okay, more like 30+) but it never gets old or boring for me.

If you're ever at a Dallas-area ANA show, or the annual TNA show in Arlington, you'll probably find me there too -- just look for the big guy digging through the stacks of raw AU/Unc Morgans with a loupe and a tablet. 8-)

I think I remember chatting with you briefly at the Dallas Spring ANA show a couple years ago. If I recall, another passion of yours was New Orleans mob history. If you ever decide that spelunking through early 20th century Treasury Department documents at the Ft. Worth National Archives in search of arrest records or other documents related to the Micro O counterfeiting ring and turn up pay dirt, you'd become a VAM legend.

This old, two-time Vietnam Navy Air vet started collecting coins when I was 18. After the service, I graduated from college and worked as a Certified Quality Engineer and ISO 9001 Lead Auditor until I retired. Just now beginning to adjust to life in retirement.

Would be remiss if I didn't affirm my faith in my Lord Jesus Christ. He saw me through countless situations that in the "natural" were impossible.

Someone left the gate open, I think they were hoping I would run away. I jumped on the moving truck and made it here.
Still the same Ol' Dawg. 8-)

Still bob259. Trying to finish up my Morgans so I can get onto the Peace pile and my error pile. Bought way too many when they were cheap. Oh wait, If buying early and cheap you can't have too many. Then I discovered VAMs and the work began.

I finally posted a photo here. Thought I was losing it. When I reduced the size twice I had three in one file. I think that was it. It is all new to me.
