One Year of Fodder- Thank You

Exonumia | coinfodder

Hey everyone. 7:30 AM on the East Coast, from the usual place, I remembered that a year ago, I wrote my first blog on coins, and all things coins. It was about the Mega Red Book of Coins, and I got some stuff from y'all, including a Mike who thought I had blocked him (still, I say, no I did not). Well, me or you guys couldn't of seen what happened next. A series of blogs, running through the United States, that actually reaches the half-way point (well, 22 out 50 is close). A long set of articles of me throwing pot-shots at the mint director. And most importantly, I found a footing in this great hobby. This needs to be thanked. First, Mike (B), who gave me the encouragement to keep writing these. John (longstrider), Charlie (sly), and Mokie for occasional bombs in the message section. Fellow YN Preston (numismaster) for bombing me in the message box, 7:00 PM at night, telling me to answer something, which helped me learn more about the hobby. Overall, though, this section is dedicated to three people; you, my family for dealing with this, and God himself. Only he knows the true reason I do this.I have changed my avatar, but you will still see the smiling face of Patton on it. It says "Coinfodder: One Year of Blogs". I can't stress it enough, this is because of you.On a side note, note the Godfather Reference in my last post.

ANA Library | coinfodder

Vito Corleone (don’t blame me) is a collector of coins. He is preparing his will and plans to give his son, Michael, his coin collection when he dies. Well, the day comes after Corleone is placed 6 feet under and his son is given finally given his collection after a long bit of haggling with the probate court (which I tell you, is a complete mess). Problem is that Michael knows nothing about coins. The mafia don has no reason to keep them, but he wants to learn about them so he can get the best price on his coins…
