    A few random finds from the last week or two.

    Tommy Hilfiger - can't find anything like this at all on eBay. The 'flags' are stitched from pieces of ripstop nylon. They are part of the shirt, not appliques (except on the back).

    Lotta Jansdotter. A hood that is also a scarf.

    Is Brooks the same as Brooks Brothers? This cabbie hat has issues with the sweatband inside. Nice quality felt.

    In this case, Brooks is not Brooks Brothers.

    I hate how Apple puts the obnoxious "YEAR" on the back of their WWDC jackets. The front pocket logos are great. But guys... keep it subtle. No way would I ever wear a giant "13" around (especially through the Mission, haha). Basically ensures thousands of jackets are donated rather than worn for years as a cool souvenir.

    oh shit. I'm sorry to hear about your bathroom. What happened? Plumbing failure or flooding like rain/rivers, etc? Anything covered by insurance?

    If its an insurance issue, don't take the insurance company's opinion without confirming it. They must provide a denial of coverage in writing and there are a number of legal hurdles/traps that could snag them.

    I don't think there was ever an A mint mark. Most either have no mark (Philadelphia prior to 1979) or S, or D. There are a few others.

    Here are the mints where coins were made and the corresponding mark.

    C – Charlotte, North Carolina (gold coins only 1838-1861)
    CC – Carson City, Nevada (1870-1893)
    D – Dahlonega, Georgia (gold coins only 1838-1861)
    D – Denver, Colorado (1906-present)
    O – New Orleans, Louisiana (1838-1861/1879-1909)
    P – Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (1793-present)
    S – San Francisco, California (1854-present)
    W – West Point, New York (1984-present)
