My Secret Santa gift arrived a while ago, and I have been very good and not opened it until today. It's a lovely big cat, a Roaring Lion of Judah in the most amazing intricately folded paper box. Beautiful.
I might organise another one next year.

Secret Santa 2022 20221211Belated Christmas felicitations everyone!!!
Above you will see the prezzie sent to me by Shhh (aka Secret Santa).
Probably one of my favourite Pobjoy Coins other than Boaty McBoaty - many many thanks.
Now this gives me the opportunity to ask a question of you all that has been toying with my eunoia...
The soft plastic sealed envelopes Pobjoy has elected to use, should one keep their prize purchase/gift in this original package filled with Pobjoy atmosphere in which it was made or should it be whisked-away to a 'clean-room' (I mean that in a clinical not a clinical way) & placed into an airtight, scratch-proof armour plated capsule; frankly a normal coin capsule would suffice for this debate...
Did I say Happy New Year?
Forgive me for the lateness or this post, we have the flu-achoOo

Capsule.


I am sure someone might be doing a video on one of these in the near future.. LOL but yes capsule... I hate plastic.. it tends to cause issues with the coin itself. When the temp gets that little bit too hot it bonds and causes marks on the coin. or if too cold it causes scratches.

My 2 p. worth.

Merry Christmas everyone. And a Happy New Year...

Chat will stay open until the new year... that way you all can use the Chat Facility. @ShortJohnSilver @The Cat's Mother

@Admin . I can tell a hint when I see one! I've been looking, but nobody has been on the chatbox. Perhaps you should arrange for one that gives out chocolates, so we could nibble as we natter.

Fukuoka is a prefecture in Japan. There is a set of coins, issued in 2016, dedicated to the 47 prefectures. Rod's is Fukuoka's.

My bad, I should have written 'Fukuoka'. I will amend my posts and go and stand in the naughty corner for a while. You probably should too @Mike for that joke.
I had a lovely Christmas, thanks. Santa, Secret and otherwise, was very kind to me, and I have enough chocolate to last until Easter* when the eggs come out. I hope you and Watson have now finished off all the turkey.

*First week in February if the supermarkets behave as usual.

I've just amended my post @denby ! I was going to try to claim that my mistake was because 'J' and 'K' are next to each other on the keyboard, but I realised that nobody would buy it!

When I was a worker I used to deal with Japan for very small stainless steel wire ropes, for window winder cables in cars and control cables in Aeroplanes.

I had a fax machine in a bedroom next to our bedroom. One night I heard it going, got up bleary eyed and saw that it was a message from a Mr TAKASHITA. I wondered if it was a piss take or real? He turned out to be the MD of ASAHI who make silver bars etc. We had a good laugh about it when I finally met him.

I remember Japanese women did not like Japanese men very much as they were not very romantic. They thought European men had more charisma! What!  Who are these men they were imagining?

 @denby  When you find out, could you let me know?
