Hi Archie, I have plenty of experience collecting coins, they're all that's left after taxes are taken out of my paycheck! <G>
Actually I had no idea of the minting proceedures that you described. Thanks for the explanation.
I made a last minute change of plans yesterday. I wasn't going to be attending the convention this year due to a scheduling conflict, but I was able to book a return flight that should allow me to complete enough of the prior obligation and still go to Vegas. Maybe you'll be able to take enough time out of your busy schedule to let me buy you a beer! See ya there, Bob
