    I would, but not crazy about New York. Great show, however.

  • TwoKopeikiTwoKopeiki Posts: 9,500 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I might actually be able to attend for a few hours on Friday.

  • horseyridehorseyride Posts: 114 ✭✭✭

    Not crazy about NY either, and I live here. I'll be going

    Always wanted to go to one. Maybe in 2025!

    We will be set up at our usual table! Friday afternoon we are going to have another 'happy hour' at 4 Pm at our table for anyone from the forum who wants to attend, just shoot me a PM or email ahead of time so I can make sure I have enough beverages!

    I may spend a day at the show by taking the bus into the Port Authority terminal.

    As I first time visitor I am wondering if PCGS will be present for on site grading.

  • NapNap Posts: 1,698 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I'll be there!

  • BailathaclBailathacl Posts: 1,008 ✭✭✭

    I will be there again this year (and will absolutely attend both happy hours!). It’s a wonderful experience

    No onsite grading. They will be there to ship back submissions only.

    Do you have any other choice? You REALLY do not want to go through Port Authority bus terminal. Its just ... not nice

    From Pennsylvania its either drive and park or take the bus. The drive is stressful not to mention the delay at the Tunnel. I am familiar with the Port Authority terminal as I often had Federal agency business at 26 Federal Plaza. I cannot imagine it is much worst that the 1980's and 1990's. It is a given not to use the restrooms - just head to the street as soon as possible.

    An MS6363 has to be top pop, by like 6,296 grades, right? :D

    Also, the show announced some (very wise) security upgrades:

    Evolving security concerns at numismatic events worldwide has led the NYINC to adopt new protocols and requirements to help provide a safe and secure environment. NYINC has a new policy requiring all attendees to be issued and wear a photo ID badge. Presentation of a valid photo ID is required. Anticipating long lines for registration at the show, the NYINC now has a few time-saving steps attendees can take in advance to facilitate registration.>

    My guess is the lines will be pretty insane especially on Friday, so it would probably be very smart to do the online registration or get there super early

    I haven't been to a coin show in 3 years....

    Missed the 1st Frankfurt Numismata to be held after Corona because of our Florida vacation.
    Now I will miss the FUN show in Orlando because we are flying back to Europe soon.

    Good guys just can't win it seems....

  • coinkatcoinkat Posts: 22,653 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I was unable to make it work either... hopefully some that attended will provide some commentary...

    Nice, thank you for sharing, I am new at world coins, I have a few and this forum has helped me to learn

  • ZoharZohar Posts: 6,627 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @bidask Thanks for the kind words, time spent together and selling me the coins (both of which are not in my core area of Habsburgs)!. Let me image them properly and share. I enjoyed the show very much and will try to be here next year!

    Nice reviews and purchases, everyone!

    I was able to make it to the show on Friday. Kent Ponterio has been going through a massive 3,000+ coin hoard of chopped portrait Mexico 8 Reales and he set aside a few coins that he knew I would love. What's amazing is the sheer number of different varieties he was able to pull out of that hoard. They are all chopped and would not straight grade, but all are rare or previously undocumented.

    I ended-up purchasing the following:

    1777/6 (R2)
    1786/5 (R3)
    1789/8 (R3)
    1793/2 (Unlisted)
    1799/8 (Unlisted)
    1803/2 (Unlisted)
    1806/5 (x2 different obverse dies) (Listed in Cayon and Calbeto, Unlisted in Yonaka)
    1810 HJ/TH (different reverse die than i have) (R2)

    Needless to say, I felt like a kid on Christmas morning. A lot more documenting of these to come once work calms down a bit. And perhaps a submission to get some new registry slots created in the Carlos III and Carlos IV date and variety sets.

    After chatting with Kent and a short chat with Mike D about another neat variety I found (albeit only images of that one), I also did a cursory walkthrough of the bourse to say hi to Andy, Justin, Josh, EVP, Arty, Zohar, @bidask 's son and a few others and headed to the airport to catch an earlier flight home to avoid being stuck in NY due to a pretty bad winter storm approaching Toronto.

    Edit: forgot to mention that when I got to the hotel on Thursday evening, met Chris Ortega and a couple of other Stack's folks, as well as a wonderful couple I have been following on IG but never met before in person: Vera and Ivan.

    Anyone buy the $3m British coin from the The King of Coins ? I told them my price range was more appropriate for The Baron of Coins, if he was around

    No worries! It was a short stint for me and it was great meeting your son and his friend. There's always USMEX in October :)

    That's an amazing addition @bidask - congrats!

  • ELuisELuis Posts: 746 ✭✭✭✭

    @bidask A great addition to your collection, for sure!.

    That coin was sold in Monaco on the 13 10 2023.

    Here the other coin I deliberately overpaid for to have it.

    Mintage 100

    Nice! Saw CRO posted that and inquired as well.

  • coinkatcoinkat Posts: 22,653 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @bidask

    In 10-12 years I suspect your opinion will have changed from overpaid to underpaid- Congrats. Wonderful coin
