PNNA Report w/pics - 10/8

Dave99BDave99B Posts: 8,353 ✭✭✭✭✭

I made a quick run down to the infamous 'Thrilla in Tukwila' this morning. This is always a really nice show. I didn't have a lot of time, but I was able to make several passes. I needed to hustle back home to watch the Mariner/Blue Jays game. Priorities, man.

The show seemed pretty busy, which was great to see!

I chatted with a few members, including Glenn from Americana. Glenn had picked up a complete set of Barber quarters (among other sets) from a long time collector, many in AU. Great coins! I looked for upgrades to my PCGS VF quarter set. Didn't find anything, but it was nice to chat with Glenn again ... his Barber inventory always amazes me.

I wandered around looking for nicely toned PCGS Proof Mercs, but only saw a few white examples.

I did locate a 1894-O PCGS VF20 Barber half (a hole in my half series) but decided to pass. Looked like it may have been rubbed a little ... I'm picky when it comes to my Barber sets.

Seemed like a lot of dealers were buying, which was also nice to see. Several dealers told me they were having trouble refilling their inventories.

Sadly, my only purchase was a little bag-o-dimes! Oh well, still fun.


P.S. Go Mariners!

Here are a few random pics I took as I navigated the floor, just to give you a flavor the show. Enjoy!

Always looking for original, better date VF20-VF35 Barber quarters and halves, and a quality beer.

    Thanks for the report and all the case pics! ⭐️😎 I’ve been to that show so many times that I know whose case is whose just from the coins inside …. not sure if I’ll be able to make it tomorrow or not….

    Thanks for the report and great pictures. I zoomed in on all the display cases. It was almost like being there except for all the money I saved.

    Nice report. In taking a quick look at all the certified coins in the dealer cases, I noticed only two (2) with green beans (of course I may have overlooked some). Wow. I've heard a lot of dealers say that it has become difficult to replace CAC coins in inventory I guess so.

    Now listen boy, I'm tryin' to teach you sumthin' . . . . that ain't an optical illusion, it only looks like an optical illusion.

    @airplanenut - I paid $300 for the $10 face bag. Nice group of dimes, with a few VG and F examples rattling around.

    Thanks for the fun report and all the supercool pictures!
    I’d really hoped to make it this time as I was about an hour away instead of the usual 4.
    Other challenges got in the way. Bummed!
