Fort Myers coin show 1/20
It was a day like any other. Except today we are looking at coins.
The drip, as the kids say.
Before venturing out to look at coins I must have the perfect accessory to go with the stained shirt and cargo shorts. Today I am wearing the Mr. Jones limited edition “Short Fuse”. While it may have been covered by my hoodie sleeve. I was styling on the inside.
I got to the show before they opened at 9:00. There were about 20 others with me. This is a smaller show. I would guess 25 vendors. The location is laid out in a square so you can see everyone when you enter.
A lot of the same vendors set up at this show. Fairly diverse selection from raw coins, certified, and paper money. Something for all collectors. I was in search of certified Barber dimes and quarters. I found squat. I made several passes around the floor. I saw one dime with a CAC sticker and that’s all I remember.
I was about to leave. Making my final rounds so I can keep my money and go home. Then I see it. While poking around a dealers table I see an old ANACS holder with 2 1/2 gold in it. Not my series so I would normally pass. I have this soft spot for soapbox holders though. Obligatory cell phone photo.
The luster looked good. Nice details on the reverse. Yes there is a scratch / mark in the obverse left field. I told myself I didn’t care. I added another soapbox to the collection. Maybe I got myself. Maybe it’s an awesome coin.
If you’re in the area it’s a fun little show to check out.
