Whoa….wait a minute.

I find it amusing that a few of my books are selling online for ridiculous sums. Books that are still available and easy to order from numerous sources.  Every once in a while I will scan the internet to see if there are companies offering any of my titles….almost always Amazon has them listed as well as  a few others. I have seen this “over-the-top” phenomenon, having worked in the book business for almost twenty years, but never understood the logic. Either those trying to sell  the book have no clue, or are just trying to rip people off.

Check out the following…….

Coin Hunting in Depth from Alibris Books.

Interesting too that I listed a copy of this book on Ebay a couple of days ago at $4 and have had 2 looks. Go figure….

Need a fix bad….a change….something new….something different…something exciting. My days have been extremely boring and very routine. Then again, what the hell can you do when it’s 105 outside, and you don’t own a pick axe?

Thinking maybe tomorrow I will get the MXT Pro out and do some bench testing, and just maybe it’s time for some fun reading, like Karl’s Treasure Hunters Manual #6,  one of my favorites.




Why do I have the feeling that the manufacturers are making a killing on their pinpointers…..?

    Jeez, the rarity value of the single hair alone from that almost bald cranium, must make it worth about the same as a Double Eagle, er…or is that Bald Eagle.
