  1. Another fun, busy and successful Long Beach show has come and gone! As I've said before, I really look forward to this show in particular since it's "in my backyard" and I get to see all my local customers and friends. One of the best parts is that I don't have to rush out on Saturday to catch a flight home, I can stay to the end and pack up when the show is over. Wednesday was a bright and sunny day and it was beautiful in Long Beach! We arrived at the loading dock area an hour early and watched while they finished setting up the bourse floor. I always enjoy chat
  2. Wow! I'm still recovering from such a busy week in Orlando and trying to dig out! It was a fantastic show, went by so fast, got to see lots of great friends, bought lots of newps, sold lots of Pretty Pennies, and even bought a few penny exonumia pieces for my own collection as well! So after 6 weeks of no shows, I was very excited to be going to the FUN show! I left sunny warm west coast Orange County and headed for sunny warm east coast Orange County! We flew over the Colorado River I had a 3-hour layover in Dallas So I had time for some
  3. First of all - HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE! I hope you are all able to spend some quality time with your loved ones. I know I am very grateful for my family and friends, including all you folks who have always been so supportive, friendly and helpful to me on this forum. I am also thankful to PCGS for having a platform such as this forum that allows us all a place to ask questions, gain knowledge and share our numismatic (and other) passions with each other. Next, I sincerely apologize for the lengthy delay in producing this show report. A lot of different things conspired to make it diff
  4. Another Long Beach show has come and gone - and it seemed to happen so quickly! I always enjoy being at the Long Beach show and seeing all my friends and regular customers, as well as meeting new folks! Most people I spoke with about this show said it was slower than the usual September show. I know several usual east coast dealers weren't there, possibly due to the storms. For me, Wednesday I did my usual buying, and Thursday was busy, but Friday was slow, then Saturday was surprisingly busy. Overall, it turned out to be a B+ show for me, both buying and selling. I know the expo folks wo
  5. Thursday morning I had a 7:30am meeting with Kevin Foley, Mitch Ernest and several other dealers regarding ways to improve the Central States show. We discussed both positive and negative aspects of the show, and had a few ideas on how to improve the negative aspects. I think it was a productive meeting, and I appreciated being asked to be a part of it. It is a positive step when the people running the shows ask for and listen to outside opinions. Mitch Ernest in particular has been working very hard to improve the inner workings of the CSNS, and I personally applaud him for all his effor
  6. I always look forward to the ANA's World's Fair of Money show as there are a lot of events and activities in addiiton to the buying and selling of coins. I had several business and club meetings, a presentation, and some cocktail receptions to attend, so I was doing preparation for this show a few weeks before I left. As is typical for the WFM show, I knew it was going to be a very busy week! I was very pleased to see that the popular CBS Sunday Morning show even had the WFM show on their upcoming week's calendar! I left OC on Sunday afternoo
