spacehaydukespacehayduke Posts: 5,468 ✭✭✭✭✭

Who is going? For many will be the first show in quite some time. I made a decision today to go, can't wait. I will do my daily show reports so stay tuned here for that.

Best, SH

    I will be there! I’m looking forward to it. It sure would be nice to find some great Mercury Dime toners.

    Hey Lance. Looking forward to meeting you in person.

    I went to Sheridan’s website and didn’t see the #55 auction posted. Do you have a link or were you saying that they can be seen at the show?

    Driving from Minnesota. Had a blast in 2020, looking forward to getting back.

    My strategy is about collecting what I intend to keep, not investing in what I plan to sell.

  • FlatwoodsFlatwoods Posts: 4,122 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I'll be there.

  • SwampboySwampboy Posts: 12,878 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Just can't make it this year.
    I did get the email from ATS regarding the grading contest.
    That's always fun. I'd sit and look at a cool box of coins any day even if I didn't come away with a souvenir slab.

    I think it might be helpful to agree upon a time and place on the bourse to meet up and say hello? Perhaps Friday afternoon?

    Pre-pandemic we were doing a PCGS boards meet at a bar on one of the evenings............... The last one in 2019, we had around 30 members rotate through the couple hours of the event. Stacks numis also showed up, it was a very enjoyable evening.

    The auction will go live around the end of next week, and close near the end of the FUN show. Auction lots with descriptions and photos will be on his website. The coins will be available for in-hand viewing at FUN.

    Looking forward to seeing you, @Catbert!

    Yes, I invited Stacks, and if I recall, they even picked up part of the tab!
    It was great talking with many members, and I also remember an informal Show & Tell with a few of our coins.

    Anyway, it looks like the show this year is in the North Concourse.
    The Hyatt Regency looks like the closest hotel with a lobby bar.
    Perhaps this could be an after-show meeting venue?
