Coin Show Pickup (1926 $2.50 Sesquicentennial PCGS MS-63)
Earlier today, I had a great time at the Gallatin Coin & Currency Show put on by the Nashville Coin Club. This was the first show I had been to since the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic last year. Overall, fewer dealers were in attendance compared to the Winter-2019 show, but that didn't stop me from acquiring my first pre-33 gold coin at the expense of brutalizing my bank account.
When I generally visit coin shows such as this, I generally cherry-pick the foreign coin boxes spread throughout the venue. Unfortunately, some dealers that I typically frequent had a relatively pilfered selection compared to previous shows. However, despite this, I acquired a coin that I have desired for years, a proverbial crown-jewel if you will.
Granted, I must admit this coin was an utter pain to photograph as it looks much more lustrous in hand.
With all that being said, I'd love to see your 1926 Sesquicentennial Quarter Eagles or anything else you deem relevant; please don't hesitate to share your examples.
