  1. Oh my my my my... This forum hasn't seen a post like this in ages. Thank you so much for the pics and the story. Please keep sharing!! I haven't been to a real coin show in forever. My favorite one (the only real one I've ever been to) is the Whitman Coin Show in Baltimore. Three times a year and I've been busy each of those weekends for the last few years. It truly brings a tear to my eye. I wish I could find another show that could stand in for that show...
  2. Fantastic shot!! Show us more!!

  4. Man, this makes me really excited to get my collection cleaned up a bit.
  5. Without holding it in hand, I can't tell. Maybe someone with a better eye can help!
  6. Hey, are you able to show us the obverse and reverse? Thanks!
  7. Great questions. I can't help you, sadly, but I love the medal.
  8. Always busy on Labor Day (for better or worse). Have fun!
  9. I do not. As a proud Virginian, I think I need to find my own version of this!
  10. Can't give you any advice but I can't wait to see your progress!
  11. Hmm.... First, you're storing it in the worst material, I think. It looks like PVC and I believe that is the last thing you want to store a coin in (besides battery acid). Second, I know there are places online about how to repair that. I think olive oil helps...
  12. Hmm... I don't have any valuation books on me. If memory serves me right, this is probably a couple dollars. I could be very wrong
  13. Hello! Can you share some pictures with us?
  14. Stunning. Both sides, especially the reverse.
  15. Hello, Luisa! Lisbon is a gorgeous city! How can we help you?
  16. Very similar styles. Looking at the years and locations, I think its a safe assumption that they are made by the same medalist. However, I'm not an expert, so don't base that on me!
  17. I don't know! I'd be too nervous to put proofs into an album :x
