    So Yuko, is it getting chilly in Chile? You have diversified from bottles to medallions? Nice collection.

    Blunderbuss2 : I continue collecting bottles of drinks, chips nitrate, beverage labels, crown corks and old packs of cigarettes, but sometimes things come to my hands as "religious medals" I bought out of curiosity only.

    I collect these too! Used to find them really cheap but now not as easy. My favorite was the patron saint of mentally ill St. Dymphna, travelers - St. Christopher and when I lose something I pray to St. Anthony.
