Mid August Issue . 2010,

Boston! What a remarkable city in which to hold the ANA Convention.  We were blown away by the venue, excellent food, friendly people, and impressive historical sights.  Our first night in Boston, we went to the ANA sponsored cruise along the Boston Harbor.  There were dealers and collectors alike along for a tour of the harbor, the food was outstanding and everyone seemed to have a great time.It was a nice kick-off to the big show!

The ANA draws a crowd every year, as well it should.  The tours, classes, featured speakers and exhibits are always top notch.  It seemed that there was always a crowd at our table and we met new clients that only knew our web was nice to put a face to the names!

We displayed the finest known, Pittman pedigreed, PCGS 1838 $10 in PR65 at our booth. What a remarkable story this coin has to tell.It is a magnificent rarity (one of only 3 minted). At one time owned by Colonel Green who also had in his collection all 5 of the famous 1913 Liberty nickels!  More than one Expert Numismatist announced it was "best of show".  This is one marvelous piece of history, and serious offers can be directed to Dave Albanese or Bonnie Sabel.

The coin market is currently soft for coins that don't excite and those that are easily replaced...but for true rarities and real beauties, it is very strong indeed.  Unfortunately, "monster" coins are very difficult to find.  We still try to buy all the nice eye-appealing CAC coins we can find, but it can sometimes remind one of locating the infamous needle in the haystack.  That being said, remember that between PCGS and NGC over 80 million coins have been graded!  CAC has only been certifying coins for a few short years.  We look for CAC coins and also coins with attributes that CAC appreciates, however the market is "short" those coins.  Don't overlook our coins without the CAC sticker, we work very hard to find original and very special coins for our clients.  The coins we have sold over the years have stood the test of time!  We almost always pay more for really special coins, but it has paid off for our clients and for us! Take a look at some of the interesting rarities we have to offer, and prepare to be amazed! 


Our Warmest Regards,
