    Well, could be thoughts advantageous to the safety of millions, that sort of thing - madman plots to destroy world, etc. Those thoughts. "Saved - and just in the nick of time." Or maybe something commonplace, insider trading without need of the benefit of personal correspondence - untraceable then, and I rule the market! Mostly, I was thinking about past thoughts of those who created masterpieces, and the thought that went into them. But I'd take the glory, fame, and money also, if pressed.

    Also, I probably wouldn't pay a million five for that particular coin; I do collect coins, and might pay that - if, like, I had it to pay, HA - for some particular rare English or European coin, which are chiefly my collecting interests.

    Canadian pennies are, after all, going to be eliminated in a few months.

    Yes- if it fit in a slot machine and it turned into 10 billion then I would. :):)
    I have been known SD, and when i was a child- and sorry not now- to collect rare coins.. (what a fool I am to have lost, misplaced, given away, etc my coins) and would never spend that kind of monies, unless of course the slot machine played a factor and they threw you in too as the special gift.
