Red river valley coin show report.

Went to the red river valley coin show today in Fargo, N.D. good crowd and many dealers set up. Lots of nice coins but I was in more of a selling mode as my girlfriend is going through chemo treatments and the bills keep coming. I sold a $1,000 bill, a $10 bison note and a $5 chief note. Purchased 3 1986 proof gold statue of liberty PCGS PR69 coins at melt and $50 face of mixed 90% silver at melt. Saw many familiar faces and had a good time.

    I happen to be in Minnesota. I have been to Fargo a few times but didn't know they had a coin show. Just curious, do you see much Seated material? James

    I lived up that way (Detroit Lakes, Grand Forks) while in grad school (UND).

    I didn't collect coins that much then because of student poverty, but I did score over a dozen Canadian large cents digging through a DL coin shop junk box.

    Best wishes for your girlfriend's recovery.

    Thanks so much for the kind wishes for my girl friend. One more che.o treatment left then 15 radiation treatments then she will hopefully be done. To answer yes there are some nice seated coins at the show. There were some CC dimes, quarters, halves and dollars there. An 1872-cc dollar, 72 and 73-cc halves, a 72-cc quarter don't remember any of the gig 4 cc dimes there.

    I'm glad that the weather cooperated for once as that excellent small show has very often run into blizzards and -20º temperatures in the past. It always used to be held on Super Bowl weekend until the playoffs expanded and pushed "The Big Game" back a couple of weeks. (Best of luck to the girlfriend)

    Yes all were nice coins in pcgs slabs. Purchased price was $488 each. He did have constitution $5 pcgs pr-69's for the same price but I like the design better on the statue of liberty coins.
