    LCS pick ups today.  I'm trying to complete a nice type set of U.S. gold coins $1 to $20.  About half way done.   I bought a nice lucite holder to display the whole set, which will look fantastic when completely filled.

    A bit of an indulgence. I wanted a few of the 2oz S1 proofs as they are stunning coins, but didn't want to start on the slippery road to collecting the boxed set, as some of them are impossibly difficult to get and expensive. Sourced these from Aus for roughly the price of the single 2 ouncers, and still being mid-table rarities.

    Beautiful little piece today, the 2014 brittania lunar horse "mule" obverse error unrecognised by NGC, early release so guessing before the error was discovered, kind of an error in an error

    Portugal tried to remain neutral at the outbreak of World War I despite the German incursions in Africa, since their colonies were bordering each other. But the greatest source of conflict was the German U-Boot blockade of Great Britain, the largest export market for the Portugal economy. Portugal eventually seized German merchant ships on British request and Germany in turn declared war on Portugal in March 1916. While only committing 12,000 troops to the Western Front the largest commitments were in Africa to get the revolting colonies back under control.

    Bulgaria entered as the final ally of the Central Powers World War I on the 11/10/1915. This might be peculiar since, as a Sachsen-Coburg, he was related to King of England and Belgium and by marriage to the King of France. But Czar Ferdinand Ist wanted to build up Bulgaria as a dominant power on the Balkan and recover territories lost to its neighbours during the 2nd Balkan War; entering on the side of the Central Powers seemed like a perfect opportunity to recover those territorial losses. With the defeat and surrender of AustroHungary and Germany this gamble didn't play off.
