As many of you noticed, I have been selling the Pedigree coins that appeared in my book, “Rick’s Legacy – Pedigree & Hoard / Coins & Currency” over the past few months. Some went to friends that I developed through pedigree coin collecting and allowed them to extent their sets. Others went to fellow pedigree collectors that wanted the opportunity to share in the ownership of a coin featured in the book. To all I say thank you and wish you the very best.
For the most part, I will be moving on from the pedigree coin collecting field and into retirement. I am enjoying it (retirement) but finding that even though the US Government took a significant amount of money from me when I was working, they are not all that keen on giving any back. Maybe I should start a blog about “blood sucking leaches”?
I am also finding a difference in word terminology. When I worked, fellow employees liked the “donut holes” that I bought from a local bakery as a treat at the end of a hard week. Now I am learning that “donut hole” means you pay a lot more for drugs than you did when you were working. If you are retired, you will understand the pun.
