ANA Show Report
The ANA show last week in Rosemont, IL near Chicago was a super show for us.  We were constantly busy at our table, and our sales were our second highest for an ANA show.  Sales were strong across all of the Bust and Seated series, and we thank those of you who contributed to these great results, and congratulations on buying some nice coins!  I also want to thank my table assistants, who were very helpful throughout the show:  Len Augsburger, Bill Bugert, Dick Graham, and Richard Meaney.

The ANA show also allowed us to catch up with friends, many of whom we see only once or twice a year.  We also attended the Liberty Seated Collectors Club meeting and the John Reich Collectors Society meeting.  The latter meeting was highlighted by a presentation by Garrett Ziss, a young numismatist whom I have mentioned here previously.  His presentation focused on Bust coins pictured on early currency, and he attempted to attribute all of the Bust coins, even those showing only the reverse side.  His research was thorough, his analysis was accurate, and his delivery was superb.  His presentation was followed by a standing ovation!  Congratulations, Garrett!

We were very successful in finding some great new coins to offer to you.  We obtained three great early half dimes (1796, 1797 15 stars, and 1803 Large 8), an 1853 No Arrows quarter, TWO 1871-CC quarters, an 1873-CC quarter, a super 1838 half, an AU-58 1861-S half, an AU-58 1863 Seated dollar, and the discovery specimen of the 1919 Doubled Die Obverse Mercury dime!  And every coin I just mentioned is in a PCGS holder!  Part 2 of our Newps will follow in another week or so. 

Two books were released during the show, the Bust Dime Variety Identification Guide, by Winston Zack, Louis Scuderi and Michael Sherrill, and Early U. S. Half Dollars 1794 - 1807, by Steve Tompkins.  We are offering the dime book at $49 and the half dollar book at $89, both books with FREE shipping!
