I am getting used to being ignored.

Even when someone asks for advise in the antique thread and they get an answer one does not even get a thank you. Seems the norm around here.

I am just a number behind a box.

I don't know anything about coins or old notes,but this is the closest I could find.

A 5pound note with an estimate of $750.00 - 1,500.00 USD:shock:

Thanks I have seen that one.I have done a few hours of research on the internet but cant find this particular note.

Maybe I can get rich on this one and bow out of here because that is all I feel like doing right now

No Pam, it is not the norm. I think most people here on the forum do acknowledge any advice given & are happy to receive an answer to a query, obviously you will always get the one or two who are just blatantly rude & have their manners stuck in an unspeakable place but so what, to hell with them & just make sure never to bother with them again.

Perhaps also on occasion nobody has an answer for you? We don't all know everything, well I do but that's just me :cool:

Anyway you really should stick around, who else would we acquire grand words such as banter from :bigsmile:

Gee-whizz...Life changed from way back then when we were young 'uns. Pressured day was filling your petrol tank with 30 cents while the guy sweated and life whizzed by at a neck breaking 40 mph. Lemme catch mah breath here....I think we live so fast and furiously that few have the time to stop and practice old fashioned courtesy. The art of good or clever grammar is going for a ball of shite. Have u nt seen? Appropriate response is "rme" and we gave them that. Perhaps a pause and realisation that the old gaurd who believed in decency and manners, are somewhat thinning while the rest chase the fatness life promises in the glossies and cleverly-physched adverts. So from a fellow who usually sits and watches life...."hello" Thou art not alone.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]3695[/ATTACH]It is normally a waste of time asking the self-made dealer to part with their knowlege.

I have had to discover my information over the last 30 years in the "school of hard knocks" just as much as any other dealer.

I am not stupid ,I know what is hot and what isn't.

If I cannot find an example on internet it confirms my gut feeling

I get a question."I saw your note on the forum and although I can't help you I am interested.Would you consider closing at R1000" ?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Heehee

I had to acquire this note, from a pile of yucky notes offered to me, by my own craftiness and threw in another two in order not to raise suspicion.:bigsmile:
