     Getting bored of my tin coin posts? Hehe sorry and most probably next posts I will try open up my banknote albums and post something from there.

   My first examination paper is tomorrow, but why I am writing about coins rather than doing fatigue analysis? Hope you are enjoying this post and happy collecting!
    I have done my first calligraphy work to be displayed in my blog. Not bad isn't?

Hi whycollect,
Thank you for wishing me, can't wait for my exams to finish so that I can spend my time on my hobby. Maybe that's what people called collecting is a disease. Hehe.

Hope you've done well in your exams.
Hmmm...maybe it is this 'disorder' that make us go crazy over these collectibles, haha.
