Summer FUN Show - - First time I attended
We moved to Florida in late July, 2015, and were unable to attend last year's Summer FUN show, so the 2016 Summer FUN show was our first.  Sales were about as expected, but I was able to find a few coins on client want lists, and those coins were sold shortly after the show, and this helped make the show a success.   I was happy to see a lot of customers.  I want to thank my table assistant Dick Graham for doing his usual great job at the show!    
Our newps include some circulated Seated half dimes incl. low-grade 1865 and 1867, an example of the very rare Briggs 3-C variety of the 1858-S quarter in PCGS VF-30, a nice 1802 half in PCGS VF-20, an 1839-O half in PCGS XF-45, an 1850 Seated half in PCGS AU-53, an 1861-O Seated half (Union issued) in PCGS AU-58 with prooflike surfaces, an 1875-S Micro s half in PCGS XF-45, a low-grade 1854 Seated dollar with problems, and an 1855 Seated dollar in PCGS F-12.

A Few Thoughts About the Upcoming ANA Annual Convention
Since I started this business full-time in February 2006, I've had tables at every ANA convention except one Spring show, as follows (parens indicate Spring or Fall shows):  2006 Denver, 2007 Milwaukee, 2008 Baltimore, 2009 Los Angeles, (Portland, OR), 2010 Boston (Ft. Worth), 2011 Chicago (Pittsburgh), 2012 Philadelphia (Denver, Dallas), 2013 Chicago (New Orleans), 2014 Chicago (Atlanta), 2015 Chicago (Portland, OR), and 2016 Anaheim (Dallas).

I believe it is important for serious national dealers to have a table at ANA shows because (1) many collectors attend only one big show per year and ANA is it, (2) my clients expect me to have a table at these shows, (3) there are coins at ANA that you won't see anywhere else, (4) the activity level is frenetic with lots of deals taking place, (5) I can meet customers who live in other areas of the country, (6) the ANA convention is the most significant show in U. S. numismatics every year, and (7) buying a table supports the ANA including its many educational sessions during the week as well as exhibits and Young Numismatist programs.

It costs a lot for me to do an ANA show, particularly one across the country.  However, I believe it is a good investment despite the high cost.  I hope to see you at the Anaheim ANA show!

In Remembrance - Gene Gardner
Gene Gardner passed away over the weekend.  Gene was a true gentleman and a friend to many.  He had an amazing collection, but he was always willing to discuss coins with anyone.  He was a modest man and never bragged about his collection.  He regularly attended the meetings of the Liberty Seated Collectors Club, and he had been inducted into the LSCC Hall of Fame.  A few years ago, Gene called me and asked me to come to his office and show him a coin I had just acquired.  For a coin dealer, that was like getting a call to come see the Pope!  We both enjoyed examining and discussing coins for an hour.  I always enjoyed my conversations with Gene, and I am sure every other collector feels the same way.  Karen and I offer our sincere condolences to his family and many friends.  Rest in peace, Gene.
