Hello! New member here. Bought my first machine, Boomerang back in December. I love it!

My main hobby is collecting coins and pouring custom silver bars. Any other numismatists on here?
Mafia metals is also my Instagram name if anyone is on there. I've been collecting for over 12 years now. Now since most coin shows will be postponed over the next few months I'll be stuck at home playing my pin

Welcome to the shit show!

I collect World Paper Currency. But because of that I seem to end up with everyone's loose change. I mainly specialize in Scientists/Mathematicians/Inventors/Great minds and thinkers on paper money. Favorite is Tesla, and trying to get every note with Tesla on it along with its Specimen.

I will miss going to the local shows as well this year. Its my only real chance of ever finding my white whale. (Yes I check ebay) I have a National Bank Note that is for whatever reason enlarged.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Bank_Note

As in 3 times the size of a normal National Bank Note. No one I've shown it to really understands why it exists, and best guess it was used as an advertisement. If that was the case and someone took a National to make the enlarged "copy" that original must exists somewhere. I am looking for that exact note. Most of the people at the local shows know me on sight, and just shake their head and say no when I ask if they have any new National's from my home town.

Whoa that’s cool as shit. I was contemplating pouring my own aluminum designs. What do you use to pour the silver bars?

Welcome to your new addiction! There are a lot of great pinball guys here in the D. Get into some of the leagues. There will be a few will start back up once this craziness stops. Hope you are staying safe in the hot spot.

There's a lot of different ways to melt aluminum since it melts at a low melting point so you could use a few ways. I have a table top melter that heats up to 2000+ degrees from Amazon for about 250-300

I've melted pennies for the zinc and have made little designs as well

I did not know that it was legal to melt us currency.

It is. It's altering it and returning to circulation that is illegal.
