Young kid here in town who is crazy brilliant. Memorizes law books for fun. He's been buying foreclosed piece of elmo houses for the last 5 years. Works 80 hour weeks fixing them up and improving the whole neighborhood by doing it. He's up to smoething like 35 of them now, all cash-flowing.

Anyway, he's also a real estate agent. Knows everyone. He's helped me poke around, speak to several huge developers about potential collaborations on a half-dozen projects. Been a sounding board on another half-dozen ideas I've had in the last year. Great to speak with smoeone who speaks the language.

Today we looked at a warehouse (he just shot them a lowball offer on my behalf).

He's 3rd generation Sicilian. So today after meeting him on this burned out warehouse on the outskirts of town, standing in the pouring rain, looking at this warehouse's gutters and estimating what a new roof would cost, he stuck me with an ice pick. Just kidding. I gave him a nice BU 1882 Italian 20 Lire.

Got it last year but I don't think I ever imaged it. Looked like this, but with proofy fields:

Very nice of you. :cool:
Is he a coin collector? If not, I would hope you tell him about this coin. Most non-collectors wouldn't have a clue as to the value of this coin.

Doesn't matter, if he's Sicilian, he's still going to hit on your wife.
