    Sorry to disappoint, not Rogers’ Rangers. Robert Rogers (of Spencer Tracy/Northwest Passage fame) was a British militia officer in both the French & Indian War and unfortunately the American Revolution(wrong decision). He died in London. However, George Rogers Clark was a surveyor and American officer in the American Revolution.
    The interesting thing is that some of the officers in Rogers Rangers during the French & Indian War became some of the bravest American officers during the Revolution(right decision).

    That wimpy WWI “Soldier’s Charge” commemorative should have looked similar to this one IMO

    OT —

    I have uncharacteristically been listening to a lot of news today.

    On Powell’s appointment, I hear Unemployment is low, prices are stable, the economy is great. He will keep up the good work.

    On a proposed tax cut bill, the economy is terrible, and we need these tax cuts to stay competitive with the work, and give a break to the put-upon middle class.

    Were things always like this?

    @Buzz Killington, I would Assume that in the same breath you heard about how we need corporate tax cuts you heard that the stock market has hit New Highs 60 times this year.

    Doesn’t really mess that corporations are struggling to be competitive and on the other hand we are seeing All Time Highs on the stock market…

    @cag —

    That is exactly what I’m talking about. And it is coming from the mouth of the very same person, on different stages, only a few hours apart. It is hard not to notice the glaring inconsistency.

    Mirrors my thoughts about the Fed. The economy is doing great, but we can’t raise rates because the economy is so fragile. ….okay….

    Found another silver dime in a Coinstar reject bin today, a 1963. Also got a 56-D penny in AU condition last week. Someone must have figured the cost of trying to sell isn’t worth it, and “sold” it for a penny. I’ll hang on to the penny and probably come to the same conclusion in a few years.

    Given that we are up to our collective eyeballs in debt, I can’t see the need to have a tax cut.

    The Republicans have to do something – they have the Presidency and both houses of Congress, and so far haven’t accomplished anything. So, it’s time to reward the corporations and the rich with a tax cut. There will be very little of any tax relief for the declining middle class or the poor, that you can be assured of. And for many of us older ones, this will be the last tax “reform”, package we will see in our lifetimes – the last big one was 31 years ago, in 1986. And no, there will be no “trickle down” from the corporations or the rich to the middle class or the poor. That argument has been proven false over and over again. Per capita wages for families are about the same as they were in 1972. This tax package is NOT going to help in any way to “make America great again”. BTW, does anyone know that Hitler exhorted his people to “make Germany great again”. Guess where that led that country. Something to think about if you ever consider believing politicians of either party.

    Tinto – I agree with you. Something like that would be more appropriate than a seeing a guy with no eye and a busted nose as a WW I soldier. And why are some of these ATB quarters showing actions instead of buildings or scenery or monuments? What’s so beautiful about guys with guns charging, or holding flags, or accepting swords? We already have too much military themes on our coins, and sports too. You would think that the USA is some sort of resurrected Sparta from Greece with all the attention we pay to fighting and playing sports. Just my opinion.

    The fact that tax revenue is being mismanaged is rarely discussed. and no serious effort is made to reduce spending. We may as well have the tax reductions as the spending side will never be addressed anyway. If I pay 1k less I don’t care if a rich person gets more as no doubt they pay a lot more. The able bodied who live off the welfare state are the big problem imo.

    ” The able bodied who live off the welfare state are the big problem imo.”

    You talking about CONgress?

    Much Weaker jobs numbers than expected. Probability of rate increase in December somewhat muted.

    Gold, Silver, Bonds and USD Index reacting accordingly…

    @cagcrisp. MCM has had at least two sales of the 2017 S ASE coins. MCM was greedy and bought a greater supply of ASEs than what the public demanded. Prices will continue to drift downward, as everyone who wanted a 2017 S ASE was able to get one via the 2017 LESPS.

    I am certain that this week’s re-opening of sales for the 2017 LESPS was due to cancellation of orders — dealers saw that the sets did not appreciate significantly (50% or more) in value and returned them to the US Mint.

    The recent rapid rise in Rhodium has certainly fizzled. These days it seems like the only thing you can count on is a steady whipping motion in the market for anything. Up … Down…. Up…… Down. Do actual People trade anymore or do they just set an automatic trade to dump at some point?

    Play the other Mans Game, you always lose.
