ANA Newps Part 2
As I previously reported, we were very successful in finding some great new coins to offer to you.  Part 2 of our ANA Newps includes some Bust and Seated dimes, quarters and half dollars, including PCGS, NGC, and some raw coins.  We found a nice mid-grade 1815/2 half in a PCGS VF-25 holder, and a nice 1869/'8' 3c silver in PCGS PR-63 Cameo!  There are only twelve 1869/'8' 3c silvers certified by PCGS!

My First Impressions of Florida
  • As previously stated, we moved to Florida to get closer to my in-laws, to avoid the harsh winters in Pennsylvania, and to avoid the sales tax on coins proposed by the Governor of Pennsylvania. So we drew a circle 100 miles in radius around the in-laws, and searched for houses in that area. My in-laws checked out a lot of the houses that Karen found on-line. It turned out that Karen found a great house about 15 minutes away from her parents. She showed me pictures on-line, went down to look at the house, made an offer on it and she bought it. The first time I saw it in person was when we got down here, about 1 hour ahead of the moving van. That, my friends, is called "trust".
  • Sebring is two hours south of Orlando and midway between the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. If you put a dot in the center of the peninsula called Florida, Sebring is there. It is a small town wrapped around a lake called Lake Jackson. Land and houses on the lakefront are very expensive, probably like just about anywhere else. The population of Sebring increases dramatically in the winter months as a lot of people up North come down to Florida. These people are called "snowbirds". We had thought about becoming snowbirds but we didn't want to move twice a year, and we didn't want to own two houses, and it is difficult to change the business location twice a year.
  • It is hot and humid in Florida in August. Although the residents here say August was a mild month.
  • Radar can show the weather clear as a bell, yet half an hour later you will have a big thunderstorm, that seemed to come out of nowhere.
  • People are friendly here, which is a good thing.
  • The people at the Post Office are very good at what they do, just like in Hershey. Another good thing.
  • If there is an official state animal in Florida, it must be the lizard. Lizards are everywhere, some of them even talk to you about car insurance in a British accent.
  • I am guessing that mosquitoes and fire ants are protected species, there seem to be so many of them.
  • The department of motor vehicles is very efficient, we both got drivers' licenses, car registration and voter registration in a total time of one hour. And the photos are accurate, not like the driver's license of Maxwell, the Geico pig. ("Next!")
  • Changing lanes Florida style: We saw someone change from Lane 2 to Lane 1 then immediately into a left-turn lane, then abruptly stop and cross 4 lanes of traffic to go into a shopping mall through its exit-only lane.  My goal is to stay away from drivers like that one.
Upcoming Events
We will be attending the Collectorama show in Lakeland, FL October 16 - 18.  We will of course be attending the Baltimore show November 5 - 7.  If you get to either or both of these show, please stop by and say hello. 

We are now at our new location in Sebring, Florida. Our new address is P O Box 7096, Sebring, FL 33872.  Our new office phone number is (863)314-6872 and my cell phone remains the same at (717)579-8238.
