M. O. Do you also collect gold?
M. B. Yes, yes, yes, but it takes a long, long time to form a collection: I have gold coins with eagles on them, I have a kilo too, that I… Yes, I have a kilo, I have Mexican coins, I have American coins in dollars, 20 dollars, 10 dollars and 5 dollars, I have English coins too; I don’t have any Louis yet, French Louis, but I do have Marks, gold Marks. Yes that’s it, but I don’t have them with me because I don’t walk about with my collection.
