Too true, it really is a funny summation of the human ego that the wealthiest members of society will spend all those thousands of dollars to buy a
useless penny! Someone says yeh its valued at X Euros, and they dive in for it.. Imagine how much they could have helped out a whole community if they
had invested it, it's disgusting. Probably could have even built a school or a medical facility in a third-world area that does not have one nearby -
maybe even both!
I have a coin collection, but I just like to keep a few interesting notes and coins that I come across in my travels as mementos, I would never pay so
much more than the value of the note/coin that I want! Nearly bought a one million zimbabwe dollar note, but even that I thought was a ripoff..
