    See you on Saturday, assuming the forecast is correct for the freezing rain to stop on Friday.

  • 2windy2fish2windy2fish Posts: 771 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @yosclimber , yes looks like we are escaping the freeze just in time!

    I would appreciate it if you would take my want list to the show and pass it around, nothing to expensive but just hard to find

    Must be a great show, some people are on fire to get there.

    I escaped seattle for the weekend and found gorgeous weather. Unfortunately, after my first connection was canceled, I got rebooked and a few hours later found new, different crap weather. Either way, nope, can’t make it this year.

    Yes I will be setting up on Saturday. I’m bringing 75 PCGS Morgan’s all with CAC and a few with gold stickers too.

    It was always a great show when I was working up in the PNW.

    Because it's a club show several club members would set up to sell parts of their collections and dealers would bring less common stuff.

    One year I spent an enjoyable hour going through a book of 3cs in 2x2s with my USB microscope - something you would never see at a "real" show. And I cherry-picked two contemporary counterfeits in the doing.

    I'll be there today.
    Hope to see some friends and find something for my 7070

    Well, I can finally get out of the neighborhood easily up here in Bellingham, so I'll see you guys this afternoon.

    I got there later than I hoped as was coming back from a trip, bummed I missed ya @Bochiman !

    The vibe was good this year- felt more lively than the others since Jan 2020 to me. Coffee and donuts filling the air was lovely. I didn't find any bust halves for my set, so I bought a few things that struck me in one way or another and were priced right:

    All in all a great way to spend a Saturday.

    Nice pick-ups!
    I did look for you on Saturday, but I was in and out by 1pm-ish. I did see a couple folks who always drop by the table that Lakesammman and I have had at other shows, so I did walk the bourse a few times to see if I could find you and say "hello".

    Hopefully your trip was a good one and it definitely looks like the show was good for you as well.

    Ah that makes sense- I got there right around 1. Oh well- Spring PNNA is right around the corner. :smile:

    The first coin I bought was this walker that caught my eye, I love envelope toning, even when the color is subtle:

    Next I bought this Canadian cent, cause it looks like the northern lights and reminded me of winter in Alaska:

    A braided cent and barber 25c with the perfect original looks for my circulated 7070 side project:


    Lastly some exo that spoke to me:




    All in all a great way to spend a Saturday.

    I didn't get there until about 2. But since a lot of people had already left, I got the 4:00 door prize! I had fun, though. See you at the April PNNA show...

    Very busy Saturday with a lot of people on the bourse.
    Sales were decent, almost met my goal for the weekend.
    Great to catch up with @yosclimber and @Swampboy !
    Sunday started a bit slow but ended up with more folks than usual attending.
    I asked several contemporaries about the show and business overall, consensus was high end material remains strong but everything else is a bit soft, no one really knows why?
    Interesting that my silver sales were good but sold no gold and i had it priced very competitively…
    Lots of YN’s wandering around.
