Foreign Coins
To Order Call
January Issue . 2010,

Hello, we are back from the annual F.U.N. show in sunny “cold” Orlando!  Boy the weather was horrible this year, but the show was great!  Best show we’ve had in a while!  Seems like the market is starting to rekindle a fire that used to be blazing…Prices for nice coins were bringing a lot of money, and that is IF you could find nice coins!  We only purchased around 20 newps after looking at countless boxes of coins….  But at least the newps we brought home are very nice, eye appealing and priced great!  It seemed like throughout the entire show there were people looking at our inventory.  It was nice to meet a lot of customers and collectors who just like to talk about coins; it made the time go fast.  A couple of highlights for PQ collector coins are the 1909-S VDB 1c Lincoln MS65BN PCGS/CAC – And the 1886 $1 Morgan dollar with pretty toning – As for coins meant more for investments as well as collecting, we found a gorgeous 1901-S $10 Liberty MS65 PCGS/CAC (which was probably the nicest looking one on the floor for all common dated Gem gold eagles)….With gold on the rise again, and again, it’s making a lot of people become interested in the Coin Hobby.  It’s nice to see so many new people at shows lately, it just feels like A LOT of people are seeing how much more stable our industry is rather than putting your money into stocks!  Nothing beats being able to hold a beautiful treasure in your own hands, something you’ve paid good money for and that you can actually enjoy looking at.Glad to be back and getting ready for the next show! Bonnie Sabel, our wonderful sales woman, will be attending that to represent Albanese Rare Coins and she will be ready to sell some more PQ treasures like always!  Make sure to stop by and say hello to her.Keep on collecting and enjoying the coin hobby, for it’s the best in the world!







Our Warmest Regards,
