(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.

Design notes from the artist:  Chris Mackey

After two months in a row of macabre skulls, figured I'd go a lighter hearted route for the next one.  I'd always seen little ornaments around the holidays of red mushrooms and I've seen them as ornaments on trees, but never knew what it was about.  Apparently, it's a token of good luck for the holidays and beginning of a new year.  It originated in pre-germanic northern europe and spread from there.  The little red mushroom is the equivalent of a horseshoe, four leaf clover, etc. as a charm/blessing and it's traditional to give little carved tokens as gifts of benediction.  There's a connection to little folk and chimney sweeps as lucky omens that I'm still reading into.
