Boeing Show Report w/pics - Saturday Jan 21st

Dave99BDave99B Posts: 8,350 ✭✭✭✭✭

Here's a quick report, and a few pics from the show.

I drove down from Redmond on Saturday (~35 minutes) and rolled into the show around 10:30am. I wandered the floor for about three hrs or so, chatting with the regular dealers. Honestly, the show seemed a little slow initially, but as time went on it got VERY busy. It was really nice to see the great turnout on a typical rainy Saturday in the NW.

I made a few rounds looking for upgrades to my PCGS VF Barber quarter set, and while I saw some super nice coins, I didn't feel any were truly upgrades. As usual, I also kept an eye out for toned Proof Mercury dimes, but only found a few blast white examples.

The show was nice in that it had a lot of smaller/medium dealers, and one massive one (West Coast Coins, out of Oregon). West Coast had beautiful material spanning many areas of U.S. numismatics. Multiple versions of any key date you could think of. Friendly people!

I picked up a sweet PCGS VG10 $5 Liberty Head gold piece from West Coast Coins. I think it's actually visible in one of the pics below. I'm enamored with heavily worn U.S. gold. I just had to have it. I'm slowly hoarding these golden worn out gems! This gold piece was actually my only purchase for the day.

As I walked around, I noticed that 90% silver was flying off the shelves. Several of the dealers complained about not being able to keep it in stock. That seemed a little odd to me. Again, it was really moving fast. One dealer had quite a few MS '64 Kennedy half rolls available for $250. They looked really nice.

Anyway, it was a fun day. Here's a few random pics of the show to keep @ricko happy. Now I sit back and wait for there PNNA show in April!

Enjoy,
Dave

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

    These are great pictures! I hope you got to enjoy the show as well. I have had Covid for 5 days in isolation and now feel like I attended a show!

    Thank you!

    Great show report!
    Loved the photos. Really sorry I couldn’t have made this one.
    Your photos were the next best thing!
    Maybe next time…

    The silver bar was next door to me, 1024 ounces! Bellingham Coin Shop.
    The owner (jokingly) said if you could pick it up with one hand it was yours…
    Many tried, all failed!

    If that is 1024 troy ounces... it comes to 70 pounds.... A big chunk of silver. Cheers, RickO

    70# Avoidrupois.

    Much more impressive to say 1024 t Oz is 85.3 t Pounds. Or for our friends everywhere else, 31.8 Kg.
