That coin is sooo f#cking cool. If I had that much disposable income, I'd consider acquiring it. It woud have the same sentimental value to me as buyig USS iberty commemorative coins from one of the survivors of the attack. While true I was not part of that event, I recognize the importance of it.

Had to edit my comment because when I have so many browser windows open, my keyboard drops letters.

And for the record, here's the link for the Liberty coin. It's not a commercial endorsement, just a bit of history from people who were there. I've bought several of the silver and more of the bronze and hand them out to people who "get it." I think maybe I'll get a shitload for gifting for my premiere attendance at BM 2012. It won't be a big deal to everyone, but those who do know what it stands for should be pretty stoked.

If putting the link here is not OK, I ask the mods to delete it. There's a bunch of other great resources on the site. If there is anything I trust burners for above all others, it's standing up for the truth.
