Dimeman's CoinX Show Reoprt........STL.

DIMEMANDIMEMAN Posts: 22,419 ✭✭✭✭✭

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. :)B)

    I never knew that much detail as possible until I viewed the reverse of your proof Barber dime.

    Love the 1892 RPD! Is that a recognized variety? Make sure to update us when it gets back or when you hear from Bill.

    Forgot to ask- did you get one of the cool PCGS Coin-X sample slabs?

    No, I guess I should have.

    No, they didn't have them yet.

    I'd leave the 1892 dime in the MS65 NGC holder. The scratch under the nose is distracting. I wouldn't buy it as a 65 and PCGS might not grade it as a 65.

    All glory is fleeting.

    That's the chance you take buying a coin in a ngc holder. I bought it for the RPD and not the grade, but it would be nice if it crossed at grade.

    Thanks for taking the time to post your show report @DIMEMAN.

    Interesting show report. Sounds like you had some success, but you might have more dimes than all of the dealers at the show combined. I think you need a new series, do half dimes interest you?

    So sorry that I missed you at the show. I did not arrive until about 15 minutes after the show had opened. The light came on in my car saying that I had low tire pressure. I stopped to fix that. So cold doing that.

    I first went to look at auction lots for the Lyn Knight Currency auction and the Scotsman coin auction. I went through the show in a couple of hours. I found a No Drapery Dime that I needed and it was at a fair price. I had to hold off because of a a currency lot that I really wanted that was going to cost me a bundle.
    I did win the currency lot on Thursday night. I did not go back to purchase the Dime on Friday.
