Dimeman's CoinX Show Reoprt........STL.
This show use to be the Silverdollar Show, but has changed names and is bigger and better now. All of the TPD Graders had tables. The PCGS table just had 1 person and was for submission's only. Wish I had know they were going to be there. I would have sent some coins in and saved postage.
Anyway I got there way early as I only live about 90 miles away and I always allow too much time for travel. I wanted to get a new Charlton Book on Canadian coins as mine is a 2014 and doesn't have all the Dime varieties in it that have been added to the Registry sets. So finally it gets to be 10:00 and I get to go in. I first went to see Mike at Nomad Numismatics from K.C. as he had some Dimes to show me. One was a 1892 NGC65 that is a RPD that I had not seen before. Pretty coin and a RPD too. I sent a pic of this to Bill Fivaz to see what he thinks. There is a pic of this coin below. There is repunching in all digits but the 1 and the 8 & 9 are pretty neat. I then started walking the floor and found a 1905 Barber Dime in PCGS58 for my Everyman sets. This was the last purchase as I found nothing else that I needed or couldn't live without. I did stop at Brian Raines table and had a good talk with him. We are both Variety nuts and he also liked my 1892. This was Friday by the way. My only day at this show. I heard several dealers saying this was their last day. People coming Saturday are going to get short changed, which is not right. Below are pics of my 2 newps. Of course the 1892 will be making a trip to CA. soon to get the correct holder.
