    Show reports please... Many years ago, when I lived in Mountain View, CA., I went to a show in Sunnyvale... Probably not the same one, but it was a good show. Do not recall if I bought anything... Cheers, RickO

    Attended this show today.

    Socialized with multiple dealers and hunted for cherries.

    Picked up OGP proof sets from 1953, 1956, 1962 and 1963. Harvested multiple Cameo half dollars, two gem+ 1956 Type 1 proof half dollars, two gorgeous 1953 proof half dollars and a possible Cameo 1953 cent that is a blazing orange color.

    All half dollars are untoned. One of the 1953 half dollars is, IMO, PF67 or PF68 quality (no hairlines) that warrants Ricko's "Blast White" sticker.

    I may post photos later.

    Sorry, I did not take pictures at the show because it was Saturday and was a bit pressed for time. Good overall turn out for a Saturday. The usual dealers were there, about 30 to 35 +/- booths.

    The buzz from many dealers was that silver will go up, one dealer claimed, "Will Skyrocket". Reason given that silver was being used in new/more technologies such as soler-panels. The other reason was the recent bank failures. We shell see...

    My purchase:
    Franklin purchase 24, 25, and 26 for my album. 9 more to go...

    My 4th Certified Mogan, not the highest grade, but I liked the Obverse and got a good/fair last day of show price.

    I do like Mercuries and found these AU in the bargain-bin, did not paid shown price.

    I bought this for my Son as it is his Chinese birth sign. Wanted a capsule but there was only a 2 ounce but got this Frist strike label.

    Good show as always, will return at the next in the Fall.
