I'm a big fan of the Coin Rarities Online ads, which sometimes feature a clever coin alteration. Two years ago at this time their ad featured a Pine Tree Shilling with the Pine Tree decorated as a Christmas tree. Below, with permission, is this year's ad from COIN World. QUIZ QUESTION: what coin is depicted?
Congrats to Dave Wnuck and John Agre on their classy work, in which "no coins were harmed". They deserve our thanks as well for supporting the Numismatic Bibliomania Society with their ad on our web site.
Dave Wnuck adds:
Merry Christmas, everyone!
