Eleven United States coins! It would be a major understatement to say that’s quite an achievement and a lot of exposure for one coin designer. Major kudos to her indeed!

For someone whose namesake was so widely despised among European Royalty, you sure are a swell fellow.

And mille brava for Ms Danstra’s epic achievement, as well as her generosity. With her artwork in mind, the next time someone asks, “Heads or tails?”, the only possible response is, “Both!”

Err, that’s Damstra, with an “m.”
Apologies.

Thank goodness my News Writing 151 professor didn’t see that as a misspelled name would earn, “Fail for the day,”!

Mark D.,

I would submit that we ought not make a practice of being too hard on ourselves; after all, there is never a shortage of people willing to jump into the breech and do exactly that for us.

Err #2:. Alas, there should be a comma after, “that.” Time for self flagellation, but not too hard.

Mark D.,

Or, alternatively, a semi-colon right after “name”, then that followed by an “it”, and finally, drop the last comma.

Mark D.,

On behalf of my CoinNews avatar namesake Willy, “our” equally eminent Russian and British cousins and of course my by virtual extension and six(?) degrees of separation indomitable Aunt Vicky, I thank you kindly for the warm sentiment.

I also offer a very enthusiastic endorsement of your words of celebration for the exceedingly gifted and talented Ms. Damstra’s illustrious career, and may she continue to design many more such truly wonderful coins for the Mint.

Watch out for hemophilia.

I believe I will have that printed, enlarged, colorized and hung over the fireplace mantle in the main drawing room. Splendid.

Since I’m not a blood relation I’ve always referred to her as “Auntie”.

By the way, how exactly does one manage to go from celebrating the work of a great coin designer to talking about Queen Victoria?

Well, okay…Long Lived the Queen!

As the classmates of Holden Caufield put it, “Digression! Digression!”

Mark,

That, along with “Diversion” and “Deflection”, are among my favorite devices!
