  1. 10 bolivares. 30g and 0.900 silver
  2. Yes thats true but mostly because of lenin. Story continues after that and even recent years there been russian news how it wasnt legit (because lenin wasnt in real charge at time). In same category goes latest news/"studies" (this summer) how stalin victims are now finnish occupy victims. And on jeltsin time, russia was in good path to get in part of western economy. Findalization isnt conquering, its more cheap. And on era of fast media, its evolved. I wont spam more, i will find proper topic from offtopic section if we like to share opinions.
  3. Usa is losing its power to china. Fiat money is printed more and more and globalism is spreading. Strong leader countries look like they are in good run in middle of this shift. Critic is then claimed phobia. Russian people are nice, polite and have own sense a humour. Capability of russia is just off the roof in internet and often forgot how hard life for average russian can be and how its boiling. S-400 isnt working yet for buyers and electric warfare is same level as all other countries that spend massive ammounts on army. They just dont (electric jamming, hacking) hide it so well and its part of strategy. Before middle east they tried to get guns in india. That didnt go well. And in long run russia tries "finlandization" on whole europe. I know that china and usa try/are doing same. Thats why europe should stand on its own feet more united.
  4. Posting my opinion as i see often in internet that russia is somekind of superpower. Thyer super only in bluff. They are messing their missile tests, sinking own subs and buy their cheese abroad. St Petersburg cant even clean their own water (finland build and funded plants). And top of all they are feeding fake news all around. Russian numbers about economics are as good as chinese. No one really knows. Thats why they are buying gold. For normal russians dollar is the money they use. My hometown was in trouble last winter as local banks refused to change rubles for dollars (they dont keep dollars in reserve). Next ten years will be exciting as (if) putin needs to be replaced. My guess is russia will break in parts.
  5. Ounce of gold or 16 ounces silver was common workmans pay in month. (On late 1800 usa).
  6. Bought 26 dimes from ebay. Price was okay. Seller messaged me that wasnt able to ship them like promised, because of work. I did reply; thats not a problem. Thought that i walked in scam. Then week later received partial refund. Seller messaged that shipment did cost less than expected, so thats the reason. I thought that this really is a scam. Today i received a letter. There was 26 dimes and 3 extra quarters. Plus postcard where seller had written "thank you for patience". Now postcard is on my fridge door and im thinking how i write awesome ebay feedback 😄
  7. Friday and got that lovely babe on my table. Cant complain.
  8. I see, i pay 5,89€ The Numistatist per month for latest number and archive.
  9. Im reading The Numistatist trough their app but not sure if want to continue subscription. So im asking recomendations or what you other forum members read?
  10. Any good source where read about 20 lires (italy) bit more?
  11. Just ordered 10$ 1894 liberty head. Nice mixture of gold and history. Now hoping local post will do its work properly. Worked ass off to fund it.
  12. Something little to start weekend. 1877 S. Dont understand much about grading and dont own any graded coins. But is there any worth to grade common strikes like these?
