Glad that you had fun. Nice purchases. Coin shows are lots of fun. Wish we had more locally.

Those are very nice, it seems there are never any coin shows around here. I don't want to go to a Canadian show anyway, I would rather go to a US show. However the only place near me is Sumas Washington and I don't think they will have one anytime soon. :ninja:

Let me add my voice to the general approval.

 

According to Jim Halperin of Heritage, coin shows are still the crux of the hobby.

Advice is helpful -- or not. Just go and have a good time.

I have never been to one either daggit, but they are having one in Richland Washinton in October, and I plan to make that one. They also have them in Spokane occasionally.

I am looking forward to attending one.

I also went to the NY Invitational on Friday. I wonder if we were there at the same time. Anyway, the Brasher Doubloon was just sweet and there was tons of other high end stuff to drool over.

 

The show was a block away from my office and, although I would have liked to spend the day there, I was only able to get an hour's worth of coin viewing pleasure. I left the floor empty-handed. :ninja:

 

All was not lost though.... I did win 3 lots at the Heritage auction.

We probably just missed each other - I was there from around 11-12.

 

The next show I know of is the NY International Numismatic Convention. Its usually held in January but the 2006 dates have not been posted yet. Below is a link to the website from the 2005 show. Its mostly world coins though. I wish we had something like FUN or Long Beach around here.
