You have to be good to yourself too. Buy yourself a present sometime. Maybe a new reference book, a nice coin, or a small hoard of coins.
While browsing in the coin shop's window one day, I spotted a cardboard box of Mercury dimes. At first glance, the coins looked to be in better than average condition. I was not able to discern the dates on most of them, looking through the window, but I assumed most were of the 1941-45 years. Some were bright. I thought I saw faint luster on one or two.
The box was maybe 7 inches by 3 inches by 3 inches deep, so it held a good number of dimes. Wouldn't that be fun to look through, for perhaps a special date, or an overdate? And even if they were all common, they were all 90% silver. Mercury dimes are one of the most popular and attractive series. And varieties? Remember the 1945 Micro S? It was obvious even without a magnifier.
That box of Mercury dimes would have made a wonderful gift. Wish I would have bought it!
