Very Late GNA Show Report
Sorry for the late report. I have been way too busy to be retired.
I left home at daylight on Friday to drive to the Georgia Numismatic Association show in Dalton, Georgia. The GNA show is held each April at the North Georgia Convention Center. It is a very nice facility located just off the Interstate. There is plenty of free parking. I arrived about 30 minutes after the opening. There was a crowd at the registration desk.
Darrell was set up at the first table with his great assortment of Barber coins. We had a nice chat and he showed me the 1840 Seated dollar in PCGS AU-50 that he had bought. It is a beautiful coin.
I started around the floor. It seemed to me that there were more raw coins this time than I remember seeing at this show in other years. There were very few better PCGS coins although I did see 2 $50 Reeded edge slugs. The one in PCGS XF-45 looked very nice.
For Ricko: Recent Silver Eagles were priced at $45, Nice circ. Morgan Silver Dollars were $35, 10 ounce silver bars were $300.
I met up with Dimeman. We had a nice chat. We agreed on which dealer, on the internet, has the worst photos. I will not mention his name.
The concession stand had a lunch of homemade meat loaf, mashed potatoes, green beans, cornbread muffin and a soft drink for $8.50. I have been to some convention centers where they want that much for a hot dog! The dealers said the lunch was good.
I went two times around the bourse floor and found nothing that I needed. I purchased a 2023 Red Book from the supply dealer in the lobby on the way out. I had a great time.
