Brass Buck Rationing-Trinity River Toss

Post by Larry Cald » Fri, 10 Mar 2000 04:00:00



My bank, formerly called a Savings and Loan Association, does not deal direct
with the Fed, but rather goes thru a large multi-site (multi-state) bank for
their vault needs.

I was in the bank, finally getting my 1999 IRA, when someone asked the "vault
teller" about Brass buck availability.  She replied that the bank where they
get their money is limiting them to a single roll of Brass Bucks per week.

Although I am not an advocate of the Brass Buck, it does seem a tad
unreasonable to limit orders to a single roll per week.  So being the insidious
type, I placed a standing order for the "roll per week" and will promptly
rathole the BB's as they come to me.

Given the lack of distribution of the Brass Buck locally, I may NEVER be freely
offered one in change so the Great Trinity River Toss may well be in limbo.  I
do hope I am offered a coin before I get too old and feeble to make the throw.

        If all the people who don't like them take all they get and "rathole"
them they won't be in circulation for a long time. If you don't like
them (not an advocate) why not leave them for people who do?

Hey, Larry!
 Are you so afraid that you will get one in change that you have to manipulate
part of the local supplies of the dollar so that they don't get into
circulation?
Tsk. Tsk. That's cheating!  :)

I appreciate that but the original premise was that I would make the "toss" of
the first Brass Buck freely offered as change from a merchant other than
WallyWorld.  So, here I wait.

Manipulate????  manipulate?  In the Metromess of hump*** million people, my
ratholing a roll of Brass Bucks is insignificant at best.

It is the banks that are "manipulating" by holding back the supply of Brass
Bucks.If they would let the supply loose, they could possibly overcome the
"grab 'em and toss 'em back" attitude of the general public.

Apparently that has been overlooked and I am getting grief because of my
"tongue in cheek" remark about hoarding.  But that is okay, I'm fully grown.

I've been meaning to ask, what does it mean to "rathole a Brass Buck?"
I am not familiar with "ratholing."  Is it "I rathole, you rathole,
he/she/it ratholes, you shouldn't have ratholed that thing, you are a
rathole, he/she/it is/was/has a rathole, we ratholed, they intended to
rathole the thing but changed their minds.etc."  How is it used and
what is the derivation?  Is it Sicilian, as in "He ratted them out."?
I would hate to be ostracized for the incorrect use of the term
"rathole" in polite society.  :-)  Aram.

I guess I missed your original posting.  You may grow old and gray waiting ;-)

BTW, Larry, did you ever get your website up and running?

To stash away and hoard, like a packrat.
