It has been an interesting week. I tried to keep up with the news and the collecting world, but a health issue sidelined me. Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with COVID. I am feeling better, but it does affect my breathing. I am glad I am fully vaccinated.

I was not completely sidelined. While trying to breathe, I was able to go online and find some interesting items online. The purchase taught me something about an area of numismatics that I did not know existed. It will be something I write about when I receive the new purchase.

During the week, the U.S. Mint mailed a package that arrived in my mailbox containing the Negro Leagues Baseball Commemorative Proof Set. The coins look better in hand than the U.S. Mint’s website images.

As the Paxlovid works to get me back in the game, it will take a few days to get everything back together, and I will be ready to get back to collecting.

Life is short. Have fun collecting.

And now the news…
