Thank you for your time and efforts. There are several reasons we are going with the group out of Austin. The main thing is we know Doug and he will be going to the recipients residence and helping with set up and training in use. Then he provides service as long as needed.

If pricing becomes an issue, we may use your information as a comparison. Thanks again.

Woohoo thanks for getting these up. This stamp was only made for the trackchair project and will only be available though the YPS link though the end of this year. I won't make a penny off these, just trying to help out. Please consider grabbing one for a good cause.

Does no reserved numbers mean we cannot request our usual ones? It is not stamped YPS so maybe that is OK.

Correct, neither these bar or any of the bar designs I dream up will be stamped YPS (though he's nice enough to do all the real work for me). Like my previous 1oz bar he did earlier this year they will all be labeled "exotic Ingots" And I'm way to lazy to try and keep lists of numbers for the tiny mintages I do.

This is a fundraiser. If you PM David he should be able to accommodate, but I do know that not all serials are available.

Update!

We have a candidate for the trackchair. John Collins found this soldier through a general he knows. John has helped place several chairs and understands the type of person who would truly benefit by having one. Both John and Dan (Stouttrout) are both recommending this soldier for the chair. He served two tours in Iraq, wounded twice and lost both legs above the knee. 1st Cavalry Ft. Hood and still lives in the area, not far from me.

I can't post his name yet. The WFTW will need to formally approve before we proceed, but I do have permission to post his service synopsis.

Wow! Would be happy to see him get approved as the recipient. I am also toying around with an idea of flying out to TX with my daughter for the next event
