I didn't THINK anything, It was a Present from a Dad who wanted to give his son an extra advantage. Actually what saved my life that day was the round "Bouncing" off a "Gold" half dollar from Israel I used as a book mark in my copy of the Talmud....
My Father never forgave himself for not buying me the IIIA vest,..but money was tight back home then...
He went to his grave thinking he failed me and I went to his funeral thinking I failed him by not going to West Point..

That's one expensive bookmark, but it did save your place.

All this time I thought gold was just a really heavy and overpriced metal.
