    This is exactly why we don’t reply to these bogus ads or meet them anywhere.

    Maybe we should and should more often... I think with the extremely high and precious knowledge in this group (mine not included)... there's a opportunity here to do the right thing. Heck, I think we should even file a complain to the police, considering we now have indicator of a recidivist criminal who prays on the less informed with forgery items...

    Yup I agree. It’s just nothing will ever happen. No one spending that kind of cash would even consider looking at that. It will never sell unless dirt cheap. Then it’s just another partscaster with a fender decal.

    He does.

    You're thinking of Portola Valley near me, there's another town just Portola north of Tahoe up in tweakerville area.

    The area that the so called seller lives way up in northeast Calif close to Nevada is beautiful country dotted with small quaint historical towns.

    Problem is drug cartels and low life tweakers discovered it's a great place to set up their meth labs. In some areas it's so bad if you go hiking in a national forest it's best to stay on the trail and not go deep into the woods.

    Wow, that’s sad actually. My dream someday is to live somewhere warm year round. Being Canadian that’s not really realistic.

    My wife and I always watch those house hunter shows. Cool little towns look great, they don’t show you what’s behind the scenes though.

    It's the Sierra Nevada mountains so they do get snow in winter but it's not as cold as Canada.

    It’s going to start snowing here any day now. At least 7-8 months of winter here. Usually around the -10 to -15C. Without windchill. Then a solid month of -40C in February. Can’t wait!

    Holy f**k that's insane.
    I lost my ability to deal with cold when i moved here - now, anything below 20c and i've got a jacket on. Here in the goldfields it gets to 2 or 3c at the coldest, and i'm wrapped up like Nanuk of the North at that temparature!


    *update*
    I messaged gary about the forgery conviction, he denied it, then i sent him the link about the court case - he does have some anger management issues!

    Oh I definitely hate the cold. It’s so dry here though that -10C is actual a nice winter day. Even when we get the -35C and being so dry here people are still out walking. I watch them from my window, though. My hometown of Saint John, New Brunswick being so damn wet, -15C goes right to your bones and you can’t function.

    To start, it's a refin (if it's a '50)... still looking though THE photograph doesn't offer much help w/ my inspection of this thing.

    Asking that coin, the seller should provide dozens of detailed photos.
