An exciting day! :)

Arrived at parking lot

Went to Men's room

Hall outside men's room

Nice bar but didn't imbibe


The bourse carpet

Cieling lighting for bourse

The potted plant hoping to bid but there was no auction

Official coin show mustard

Show advertising

A cool Cadillac DeVille D'elegance in the parking lot that I bet is comfy to ride in.

I didn't find anything to buy so maybe I should have gone to the bar but I needed groceries and didn't want to stay out all afternoon.

    that's got to be a first, a view of the mens room, funny thing is, I don't care how often I have used the rest room prior to arriving at a show, I still always have to stop in there first, it must be anxiety that kicks in??

    Looks like the typical Sacramento coin show to me. It’s used to be pretty good but that was a while back.
    I look forward to your next years report 😊

    I’ve been involved in a few hotel renovation projects in Sacramento and I can safely say that isn’t one of them.
    But it was a great show report!

    Was there around 1400 on Friday was actually surprised on the amount of people attending, almost every table had people looking. Picked up some gold in a trade. Might go back today.

    This is a very interesting report. Thank you for taking the time.

    I have been wondering what the Sacramento show was like. Now I know.

    The photos were great. The photo of the bathroom was a real relief. Thank you so much. :)
