For decades I’ve had this thing about big silver-looking coins jingling around in my pocket. JFK half dollars, Eisenhower “silver” dollars. For a couple of years in the late ‘90s a couple of actual silver dollars from the 1920s had joined the party. (Then I lost them.) The sound of them, how they feel, the weight…these relatively meaningless coins make me feel the alpha. Probably because they’re remnants of the past. Yeah, that’s it.
