Well -- yes -- I didn't post them because I didn't like them.

The last 200 years have not been good ones for medallions and especially for coins of the realm -- where you might have to go back to ancient Rome to find the really good ones. (because they were allowed to be simple)

very neat.

To celebrate the 400th anniversary of Jamestown I am working on an exhibit at our public library.

Oh, what those poor English settlers must have went through.

Finally I begin to grasp why it's always the back of that man's head! Turning his back as well as turning away to admire...

Saw some marvelous coins at the Yale gallery last month. Some of them have "stuck" in my head.
