The other day I noticed a website selling 1/10th-oz Canadian Maple
Leaves... Leafs... more than one Canadian Maple Leaf coins at a slight
discount because the items had scratches, nicks, bruises and abrasions.

I smiled over the lack of sale-offers for circulated specimens... and
thought how the term 'dime-a-rand' never made it into common use.

I hope things go well for folks.

It must be tough searching Google and only seeing 2 hit from 1999 for "dime-a-rand", both at verycomputer.com. You tried!

Things are good here in NH. Retired from the stress last year and haven't regretted it yet. I hope you are also enjoying life.

Actually, Mr Herlihy, I didn't search at all... my memory is, admittedly,
porous but I recalled Serious Remonstrations sent towards me when I
expressed what seemed to be heretical views about What Is Money.

Most pleasant to hear and most gracious of you... things here roll right
along, disgustingly well, aye.
