    I will attend Thursday. Have no expectations that I'll add anything, but nothing better than to spend an afternoon at a quality show!

    Thanks! I've already purchased that "large piece of gold" so my coin budget is pretty much spent, but I'll still be going to check out Draped Bust Halves in VF/XF condition and, more likely, Early Copper...

    Any suggestions on where to park for a person visiting just for one day?

    I usually use spothero to find a spot but the Sheraton garage is next door and you can go through the hotel and an elevated walkway to the convention center to avoid the surface streets.

    Just a few questions.
    Is PCGS going to be on site, Thursday, March 21 st ?
    If yes, would there be a time frame ?
    Can I sign up with PCGS on site ?
    If signed up, dues paid, can I submit a grading request the same day ?
    Road trip! Sounds like a plan.
    If possible.

    PCGS was on site today - March 21st - Noon to 6 PM, same as the general admission time frame.
    PCGS representative was telling persons waiting in line that they could sign up for membership today and submit today as well.

    Being dads taxi service I saw a window in my daily duties, so I took it.
    Feeling like a bowl of jello from the drive and with no time to spare the early bird group was a welcomed break.that set me back 30 mn.
    Traffic on the way back, 95N, Balt. - Phila. was perfect. Arrived home on time as school was just letting out.
    My son asked me, "so dad, what did you do today and what's all this stuff"? Wendy's, Wa Wa, coffee, and juice cans ?
    Feeling like a cold bowl of jello again, I answered him "ah same ole, same ole".

    The rain kept me away. Not the budget to buy anything but usually drop some coins at the host or ATS...

    Stop by around noon Friday to submit a few coins to PCGS. Seem not as busy as I thought since I could go straight to a PCGS rep, but then, it was lunchtime.

    Was planning to go back today with the kids for their Kid's Nook exploration table but the rain spoiled the party.

    Anxiously awaiting show reports.

    I guess gold/silver will be hot?

    As an E-Bay DE seller... , we have not sold a coin for almost 2 months.

    Could be our pricing? Perhaps, gold buyers are seeing generics at VG price points and using their capital on those?

    Not complaining but I find it interesting?
