buffalo nickel

Today I slogged through work, and gave some investment advice to screenwriter friend (he's newly vested in a company profit share plan). I gave him the slightly more than a nickel seminar which he claimed he only understood 10% of, so its hard to know whether or what he will use.

He did pick up researching the ticker symbols on, even the retirement target funds. From the retirement target funds he was looking at I learned a fascinating thing. I thought I was freakin' aggressive with my asset allocation (65%/35%) in my 403B, but to T Rowe Price I was behaving like a new retiree. Tough. I'm making money, putting my $750/paycheck in and my dips are dips not canyons.

As Paulette mentioned, we are following the celeb on our list. Again, another who was on my list last year passed away. I say my list has healing powers! Robin Gibb will never die.

I got a 1935 buffalo nickel in my grocery change this evening!

    Haven't seen a buffalo nickel since I was a child in the 60's. And even then it was a curiosity.

    I played on a rec league hockey team (my workmates, some guys from a local insurance company, and some college buddies) a few years ago, and we called ourselves the "Buffalo Nickels." The name would lead us to put a buffalo nickel logo on the front of our jerseys, and everything. Such a terrific looking coin, isn't it?
