Dallas ANA Show - - A bit slow, but we bought some nice coins
This year the ANA's National Money Show was in Dallas, TX.  The show rotates around the country and next year's show is in Orlando.  It seemed to us that attendance was down a little, but I turned it into a buying opportunity.  I want to thank my table assistant Len Augsburger for helping out at the show.  I was happy to meet several long-time customers in person whom I had dealt with only by phone and e-mails.
We sold several coins, the highlight of which was our outstandingly beautiful 1814 half in PCGS AU-58 with WOW! toning.  It went to a very happy collector, who plans to put it away for a long time, so you won't be able to see that great coin in my case, although I did put it on our Archives page.  Our Newps were highlighted by a grading set of 1878-CC dimes all in PCGS holders from VG-10 thru MS-64.  The group will be marketed as a set for a month, after which if it has not sold, the coins will be sold individually.  We also acquired a nice 1822 dime in PCGS G-4, an 1866 dime in PCGS AG-3 that is an eyelash from G-4, a fabulous 1880 dime in PCGS MS-67, an 1847-O quarter in PCGS AU-50, an 1815/2 half in PCGS VF-25, an 1834 half in PCGS AU-58, an 1863 Seated dollar in PCGS VG-8 which is a condition rarity, and an 1868 Seated dollar in PCGS AU-53.

Do I Collect Any Coins Now?
I sold the vast majority of my personal collection in 2008, but I was a collector for a long time and I have to collect something.  I collect varieties in some series including 20th century varieties, because I believe some of them are truly rare.  I also am working on a set of colorfully toned proof Indian cents, and one of my personal favorites is shown below:
1902 Indian cent PR-66 BN
Books That Are Worth A Look
Two new books have been published that are worth acquiring:

Truth Seeker:  The Life of Eric P. Newman was researched and written by Leonard Augsburger, Roger W. Burdette, and Joel Orosz, is available from Heritage (search for "Newman book").  The book is a great read on legendary collector Eric P. Newman.

1849:  The Philadelphia Mint Strikes Gold was written by Michael F. Moran and Jeff Garrett, and is available from Whitman soon.  I got a look at this book at Dallas and it is a good one.  
Upcoming Events
Our next show is the Baltimore show March 31 - April 2, followed by the Central States show in Schaumburg, IL April 27 - 30.
