Upgraded from 30 to a 100 Mbit connection, both up and down, actually the slowest speed available. The alternative was 200. Speedtest.net confirms the speed with a ping of 6 ms, download is 95.59 Mbps and upload is 94.40 Mbps.

Ended the TV contract and replaced it with Netflix. Most Dutch tv programs can be watched legally for free on the internet anyway

*siiiigh* Fine, I'll update with the newest coins and shit. This might take a while.

I got a scanner, and I've re-done my whole banknote collection. So I'll start off with the two old $5 banknotes I last posted shitty pics of:


1899 $5 Silver Certificate


1914 $5 Federal Reserve Note


Sold about half the gold I had and got this. Springfield Armory "Range Officer" M1911, .45 ACP. Fantastic pistol.


Sold the other half of the gold I had and got these two banknotes;

1922 $10 Gold Certificate


1896 $1 "Educational Series" Silver Certificate

Some other new stuff;

1966 $100 United States Note


1864 $20 Confederate States of America


1907 $5 "Woodchopper" United States Note


July 14, 1869 through February 16, 1875 $0.15 (15 cent) Fractional Currency


February 26, 1874 through February 16, 1876 $0.10 (10 cent) Fractional Currency

Been doing some food stamps, too;

1992 $10 USDA Food Coupon
All I have so far, including a rare star note food stamp.

Some foreign stuff now.

1921 Philippines 5 Pesos banknote


1912 Russian 500 Rubles.
This banknote is massive, coming in at 272 x 126 mm (10.71 x 4.96 in).
It was also worth a lot back then. It exchanged at about $257 dollars, in 1912. Adjusted for inflation, that's around $6,300 today.


Here's a 500 Ruble banknote from 1997.


2004 Japanese 1000 yen banknote. Currently exchanges to $9.02 USD.


Brand new 2017 Fiji $7 banknote, commemorating their Rugby Seven team win in the 2016 Olympics. Exchanges to $3.37 USD.


Also brand new, 2017 Switzerland 20 franc banknote. Exchanges to $20.44 USD.

Let's switch to coins and shit. Last I see I posted on my British Monarchs set was the 1566 Queen Elizabeth piece. So let's update that;


1645-46 King Charles I half crown


1687 King James II threepence

With that, I'm only missing the Cromwell commonwealth, which only really has two affordable coins, the 1 and 2 pence, under Richard Cromwell. I'd need over $1k USD to even *think* about getting anything from Oliver Cromwell. So I've got from Queen Elizabeth II back to James II. Skip the Cromwells, and I've got them all in a row back to Elizabeth I.


2016 Mongolia 1000 Tögrög. Graded PCGS PR70 DCAM. Mintage: 1,000.


2015 Kazakhstan (Great success!) 1 tenge Silver Irbis


2016 South Korea Chiwoo Cheonwang "One Clay". Mintage: 50,000


2017 Australia, Silver Swan, One Dollar. Mintage: 25,000


2016 Russia St. George the Great, 3 Rubles (5 US cents). Mintage: 18,205


2017 Netherlands "Lion Dallder/Dollar". Mintage: 5,000 (I have two!)

And one of my favorite pieces:


1974 Monaco 100 francs. 1.1896 troy ounces of silver. Mintage: 25,000.

Doesn't look like a lot, but my photography setup is wholly inadequate to capture the heads side of the coin. Here's the eBay seller's photo:


I knew it would probably be decent looking. When I received the coin (in it's original packaging), it was heads down. Turned that sumbitch over and actually gasped.

Here's the coin angled in sunlight, taken with my phone:


And the best I can get with my current camera setup:


Totally need a better setup.

Anyway, this all fit in one post. Damn. I'll leave you with some albums that contain more photos of stuff:

Foreign banknote collection
Large sized US banknotes
Small sized US banknotes
USDA Food Stamps
British Monarchs set
New Venezuelan hyperinflation banknotes
When I got on a Canadian coin kick
¡Viva la Cuba!

Bought HyperX Cloud Stinger headphones for the gaming. Paid less than $50, but these rocks. The last ones I had was Sennheiser HD205, but these are much more expensive but doesn't offer much difference in the quality of sound.

No its a Beer Font the thing that sits on the bar advertising what drinks the establishment has...

I've got a collection of about 20 different ones from different breweries You don't see them much these days as they've switched over to stainless steel pumps to dispense the beer.

Thanks; I thought you were referring to the typeface as being what you collect in various forms (e.g. "beer fonts" on serviette holders, bar mats, coasters, etc).

I haven't seen this bar-top box kind before.

I've always been into collecting beer memorabilia... The beer fonts just complete the collectiopn so to speak

Keep meaning to get decent photos of them all.

Here's another couple.

I just bought a Fostek system in my Outlander that came stock. I never had a stereo this good in any vehicle in my youth, and I sure as hell never had a subwoofer, which this system has. Also I add some speakers. I can feel my brain rattling around in my skull when I crank it. Middle daughter and myself went for drive when I got it, and cranked up the techno. At last, I'm one of those annoying people who sits behind you at stop lights, making the entire intersection pulsate. It's wonderful.

A knock-off iFixit toolkit (after reading that most of the tools in the original aren't that great either), and some high quality screwdrivers for the most common small sizes.

On a related note, I recently found those old bits in my tool box...
