There has been a big red banner running at the top of the Main Forum page for awhile now.

We don't want people to get TOO spoiled. If YOU send a pull tab, then everyone else will feel obligated to one up you and send some can slaw or maybe a beaver tail or maybe if they REALLY want to show off a Felix penny

I received my gift from bdu 1962 this morning. I think he over did it. He should get his on Wednesday. We can't track it because the post office only gave me a partial tracking number. Here is what I received.

It should have been longer.

pryan67 12-07-2020 04:04 PM

I exchanged addresses with Real_Rat_Fink last week. His package is going out tomorrow (assuming the last item I ordered arrives today)

jimther 12-08-2020 10:58 AM

My Exchange match (JackalopeZL1) and I have now traded addresses and will both be sending out our Gift Exchange packages shortly. As the crow flies, the trip for a package from Boston to Northern California is about 2590 miles (according to Google Earth's "RULER tool").

Looking forward to Ken's surprise package.

I went to a battle site near my uncle's house. You can probably look some up. I found pieces of grenades and bullets. My uncle found some giant shells and a canteen. People find live grenades there, and bullets littler the surface of the ground everywhere!
The beaches are also nice for metal detecting.

I received my package from Real_Rat_Fink today. Awesome stuff...some great chocolates (no picture because they didn't last long enough :) ), a set of wireless earbuds (great for a backup for my Nox), and some old coins and tokens....

Thank you very much and have a VERY Merry Christmas

SmirkAtTheMerc 12-12-2020 09:57 PM

Well, I have no idea when mine will arrive, It should have came by Thursday.

I received Usa's package this afternoon. Really nice assortment of coins, some holders, and a first day of issue $1 coin.

Did I mention a Capped Bust Dime???

Awesome!

Thanks Levi! I didn't have a Capped Bust in my collection. Now I do.

Thank you so much!

Looks to be a 1930's English shilling. WOLF
