All of our coins including the following newps are posted on our website  If you see any coin(s) of interest, please call (717)533-2935 or (717)579-8238 (cell) or e-mail us at to reserve the coin(s) that you want.

Also, please keep an eye out for our full-page color ad in upcoming issues of both Coin World and Numismatic News.

We are also distributing the new book "A Registry of Die Varieties of Reeded Edge Half Dollars" by Dick Graham.  Mr. Graham has collected and researched this series for over 15 years, and the book is excellent!  Up until now, the only reference for this series was a rather difficult to use monograph by the late Jules Reiver.

ANA Show Report
We had a fabulous ANA show.  I would rate selling as a B, and buying as an A.  Despite my rating of B for selling, it still was our highest sales show of the year.  It seemed to me that a lot of collectors were holding onto their money until Rarities Night, and thus sales were a bit slower than expectations the first couple of days.  But after Rarities Night, we had two great days of sales, and our sales on Saturday were the highest of the show!  Our table seemed to be busy constantly, and it was great to see some of you at the show!
We attended the historic auction of the Battle Born Carson City complete 111 piece coin collection, and Rarities Night with some more outstanding coins (some of which we bought, as mentioned in our Part 1 Newsletter).  The Battle Born catalog is now the definitive study of high-grade Carson City coinage.  I want to offer my congratulations and thanks to Rusty Goe for his research and writing of a document that will have a prominent place in my library!     
Looking Toward The Future
My next show is Lancaster, PA September 15, then Harrisburg, PA September 29.  After that, I will be at the ANA's National Money Show in Dallas October 18 - 20 (Table #422) and the PAN show in Monroeville, PA (near Pittsburgh) October 25 - 27.  I look forward to seeing you there!
