(what's this?)
Why Passwords? From time to time we or people we sell for will want to reserve the purchase of a coin for only certain people. We do this by password protecting the item for a period of time. This enables the owner, seller, or us to provide early access to a sale for members only, VIPs, reservation lists, etc. When an item is password protected, it typically states on the item's page when the password will be removed. We do not supply passwords by request, you must have received the password through a direct notice to participate in a password protected sale.

November 2018 - Thread of Fate

Design notes from Chris:  So I (re)discovered an obscure image I had saved for investigating for the possibility of a future coin and started doing a bit of research.  I was quickly delighted to learn the amazing story of the Death's Head Hawk Moth.  There are actually 3 known species and they're named after ancient references to death and fate in ancient Greek mythology.  These macabre night fliers, dressed in a variety of horrific skull depictions, are both wondrous and death defying in their own right.  They are masters of camouflage among the insect world and can copy-cat pheromones of various colonies and species of honey bees to stealthily make their way right into an active hive to steal away a haul of rich honey and sneak away again before discovery.  This is remarkable because even rival honey bees can't pull off camouflage of this caliber.  When agitated they can produce a loud screech to intimidate or ward off enemies as well.  They're clever, great at camouflage and live their short lives in a fury of activity sneaking in and out of hiding holes.  Not entirely unlike active cachers!
