Baltimore Show Report and Exciting Newps
We had a very good show at Baltimore early this month.  We sold a decent number of coins, and we acquired some really great coins.  I want to thank my table assistants Bill Bugert and Dick Graham for their great work during the show.

Now, onto the newps!  Our most exciting newps are in Bust Quarters.  We acquired an 1821 B-6 (R7) in PCGS VF-30 that is the second finest of the 6 known examples of this rare variety.  We also acquired a wonderful 1820 B-5 (R5) in PCGS MS-62 and a very nice 1837 B-5 (R-5) in PCGS MS-62.  Other great newps are an 1865 dime in PCGS MS-62, an 1866 dime in PCGS XF-45, an 1807 B-2 quarter in PCGS VF-25, an 1823 Broken 3 half in PCGS AU-53, an 1862 Seated dollar in PCGS XF-45, and a very rare 1873-CC Seated dollar in PCGS XF-40!  Contact us at (863)314-6872 or (717)579-8238 (cell) or e-mail us at to reserve the coin(s) that you want.

Buying Gold?  Then Buy Gold
It seems that since the elections are now over, there are a lot of ads out there offering gold and silver bullion for sale.  A "gold bug" stopped by my table at a FUN show a few years ago.  He said that only gold was money and he wouldn't invest in anything else, and he certainly didn't believe in the value of paper money.  I said, if you believe in gold, then continue to buy it.  He said, yes, I will be buying more and I already have a lot of gold now, in fact, "I have the certificates to prove it!"

I'll let that sink in a little bit before I continue my story.  So I said, you said you were investing in gold, but it sounds like you are investing in certificates instead.  And, if you don't believe in the value of anything printed on paper, then what were the certificates printed on?  My point is, if you decide to invest in gold, or silver, the only safe way to invest in gold or silver is to take physical delivery of the gold or silver.  If you only get paper, how do you know that when you want to cash in, that your certificates will have any value?

Back when I lived in Pennsylvania, about 20 years ago, there was a big lawsuit filed by a doctor who had invested in gold, but let the seller hold onto the gold.  When he went to get his gold, it wasn't there.  A big lawsuit ensued, with a lot of time and money spent.  I calculated that with the amount of gold mentioned in the case, he could have taken delivery and with two safety deposit boxes costing $20 per year, he could have held onto his gold.

Upcoming Events
Our next show is the FUN show in Fort Lauderdale, FL January 5 - 7, 2017, at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center.   Please stop by and see us!
