FUN Thursday Report
I have just the one day at FUN sandwiched in the middle of a Disney World trip with wife and kids so I had to get as much done as possible today.
Opinions are sure to vary but I had a difficult time finding quality coins in which I was interested, although, to be fair, my interests are somewhat narrow. I can state that were exceedingly few nice trade dollars and very little CAC stickered, crusty gold. The ones I saw were priced at above retail.
Submissions at PCGS went smoothly and quickly. There was a big rush at the beginning of the day but there was no line by mid-afternoon. Heritage lot viewing was a pleasure and I confirmed that there is a coin I'll take a swing on in the auction (although I expect it to set an auction record so I likely will not get it).
As always though, one of the best parts of the hobby is the people. Hung out with @DeplorableDan - what an eye for coins this guy has. He'll have some fun stuff to share. Met @Floridafacelifter and @FlyingAl - both great guys although I wish I had more time.
Also chatted about pioneer with David McCarthy and trade dollars with John Dannreuther; this show is fantastic for getting to meet people who know/live/love coins. I would definitely recommend anyone who can make it to come to the show. I would also recommend to not do it in one day.
I bought a couple of world coins which are being holdered so I'll just put up a pic of my one US newp from today.
