Happy Autumn my friends! Other than coin related conventions and trips, this is my favorite time of the year. Fall brings cooler weather and all the best holidays, especially when you can experience them through the eyes of little ones. My junior numismatist, Jackson “Jack”, is four years old now; can you believe it?! He is still more interested in trains and trucks than loops and albums, but I sneak in a little lesson here and there. Usually the lesson devolves into me trying to find a coin Jack has hidden. Thankfully he has his staple hiding spots, usually inside a shoe! Jack has recently decided Halloween is his favorite thing in the world. He points out every yard with decorations and particularly enjoys ghosts and skeletons. He is not a fan of witches, however. Jack will be Chase this year from Paw Patrol. He says Daddy should be a king! I’ll post some Halloween images later this month.
<<<regains focus on work>>> I am loading auctions onto eBay this week. I loaded 14 coins last night that will end on Saturday night and plan to load more coins tonight that will end on Sunday night. Please take a moment to view the auction lots here….
Bid early and often!
I am loading new purchases “NEWPS” on the website throughout the week. Last week, I removed all coins posted under New Purchases to give us all a clean slate for NEWPS viewing. I’ve already added a few to the site and more are coming. Many Bust Dollars and a few Seated coins as well. Newps can be viewed here…
As Summer turns to Fall, our attention turns to the Whitman Coin Expo in Baltimore Maryland. This years convention takes place from Thursday, October 25th until Sunday October 28th. We will be in attendance from Thursday through the end of the day Saturday. We will not be attending the show on Sunday. Our table number is to be determined. The show has moved us around a little over the past few years. I’ll post the table number under “Upcoming Show Schedule” when confirmed.
Wishing you all a wonderful first week of October!
