Baltimore Show Report 

November 11, 2010

Wow!  What a show!  We did very well at the Baltimore show recently held.  Normally, we do most of our business on Friday, but for this show we were busy all three days.  Highlights of the new purchases include two low-grade 1796 half dimes, an 1846 half dime, 1814 and 1820 STATESOF dimes, an 1874-CC dime VG with light cleaning, several PCGS quarters: 1807 VF-25, 1822 XF-40 and VF-20, 1851-O F-15, 1860-S G-6, 1867-S VF-20, and 1873-S XF-40; an 1878-S quarter NGC XF-45, an 1807 Small Stars PCGS VG-10, an 1850 half NGC AU-50, a prooflike 1857-O half PCGS AU-55, gorgeous 1865 and 1879 business strike halves at grading, an 1836 Gobrecht dollar in no-problem EF, a pure-white 1866 dollar in NGC PF-64 Cameo (close to Ultra Cam), and a beautiful deep cameo proof 1881 dollar but has a very slight rubbing.  They are listed at right and on the website, and we will be posting the pictures over the next few days.  If you see any coin(s) of interest, please call (717)533-2935 or e-mail us to reserve the coin(s) that you want.

My next show is the FUN show in Tampa, Florida January 6 - 8, 2011.  If you attend that show, please stop by and say hello!  And we wish all of our customers and friends a happy holiday season!

The "kid in the candy store" feeling

Recently, I received a note from a new customer that said, "when I went onto your website, I felt like a kid in a candy store."  That brought me back about 25 years when I had the exact same feeling looking at Jim O'Donnell's coins at a show.  I always found a coin or two to buy at Jim's table.  Of course, they were not the most expensive coins he had.


One of the things we try to deliver to our customers is that "kid in a candy store" feeling.  I can't attend every show, and I don't have a "brick and mortar" store, but my website is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  So, you can get the "kid in a candy store" feeling anytime you want!
