To the Song Man( Great site) : Coins are a solid reality of the world at large, as we get more “inflated” by our solid worth it get hyped up to well beyond it’s value. Houses in America is one example!! Rather than enjoy the worthy and honest effort of our past we pour on our economic reality and cause mahyem. Love the story hate the fact that it’s fate is silver Wall Street. A story worth tell……perhaps in song????
