I went to the Glenpool coin show today and yesterday. The oldest coin I bought was an 1859 Indian head penny with no shield on the reverse. My newest coin was a 1962 toned dime. I bought an au 1945 P au war nickel for a good price. That was my second coin show I ever went to. This is my first blog. Another coin I bought was a 1927 quarter for 18 times face.

WAR AND THIS ONE IS RIGHT HERE

Coin Shows | Mike B

Hi I watched the news today . I usually stay away away from it. But there is no doubt we are at war with an enemy we can't see.. And this enemy is winning by taking whole familes. Nine in one family. Yes the covid 19 is the biggest war we have fought. I say it every day at the end of a message be safe stay well. The positive thing about this war is we can win it. We're a mask don't shake hands stay in if you can. You think this is just another conspiracy.? Well it's far from it. When my mom in law hit her head. She of course had he be creamated. . My friend Pete who owns the funeral parlor said to me Mike I have done a years worth of business in two months!! Let people.who think this is a joke come here and watch my staff work from Sun up to Sun down.. This is not a flu. It's not a Spanish flu it's a new strain of a killer. I see people in the street there about 25 to 40 not wearing mask. Laughingly were all crazy. This is the age group killing us. I won't get it I have no problems. Well keep walking around like it's a normal day. There is nothing that's normal about this. I stay in . I go out for ten minutes and walk a half a block a week. I go over my coins. Watch old t.v. shows. do something. I'm in the danger age. I'm 67. I have many problems but I also have anaemia. That means my system is comprimised. I have a better chance than most of you being a causalityof this war. I repeat don't think because we're you live it won't find you it will. I had an encounter when someone was walking next to me no !ask. Yes I shot my mouth of. Sir would you kindly were a mask? No one tells me. I said I'm not telling you I'm asking you and I don't care about you I care about me. I stopped and let him go on. Nothing I'm telling you is new.people have become complacent. That's the problem. Everything was opening they thought it was over It's not. It's getting worse. If your not scared you better be. Yes we have something to fight this . Three companies have come out with a vacine. But to distribute it won't take a day. Months. This is were I would call up the National guard to help distribution the anti virus. But right now the light at the end of the tunnel is an on coming train.. That will change. So I ask all of you who are thinking of a big thanksgiving please cancel your plans. Put your pride in your pocket and stay home.. Forget the idea I'm not going to get this. You write blogs about shows. I' was ready to go to my first when this hit. Ask yourself this. Is your life worth the price of a coin? No it's not. When I checked the map this morning just put your neighbood in your browser . We're I live we are open. It has gone up. But it's still eating outside. Ten% of restaurants can open. Deliverys. That's the best if you didn't get to shop. Everyone I see except a few are keeping to the rules. Wearing a mask. Wow that's such a convenience I can't do that. Can you live with respirator down your throat. ? I chose a mask and washing hands. Is that to much to ask. Well if it is I wish you luck just stay the heck away from us. When this was announced I called in a favor and spoke to a high ranking official at the C.D.C. . His number did not come up on my screen. He said you Mike I said yes. I asked what are we up against ? Is this the flu. He replied this is hell and it's not the flu. How long .? Two years at the most That call scared me to death. I only told a few people on the site. . Why because they didn't know how to fight this.. Shows. Come on Broadway shows gone, sports gone, no one in the seats. Going to the movies gone. I will say it again. I feel terrible for those who lock up there tables and coins and travel all over the states. There income has been shattered because of this. What about those who have health problems and were looking to go to my first show. Yes it's affected our buying. The face to face meeting of a friend on the site. I want to talk without a mask . I waited this long.I can wait longer. That's why i wrote this. Those who go to small shows your only kidding yourself. It's small I won't get it. ..and We all have to do our part. We do that the numbers will drop the vaccine will be out and the best part I will meet you at the shows.!! The prices are going up everywhere with coins. Dealers ebay other internet sites.. I write this because I'm worried. I was upset when Mokie and his family had somerhing. Thank God it wasn't covid.19. Kids.mow.are getting it. It's like this thing is in the clouds and dropping all over us. Please follow.The simple steps and protect yourself and others.Mask wash hands and face and stay home. Soon you know it this will be over. The next few months will tell us how were doing. I felt Some one has to write this. It affects every part of our hobby. Even club meetings have been cancelled.!. Yes this is a matter of life and death. Stay safe,Stay well . Yes America wins again!! And the light at the end of a tunnel is not a coming train!!! We will win out. All we have to do follow the rules. That simple..Thanks . Stay safe and stay well!!

Well, it has happened. Up until 2 weeks ago, we were feeling pretty good about our show going on as planned. In the last couple of days, the Governor of Indiana and mayor of Marion county have imposed restrictions making it impossible for our show to go on. The 62nd annual Indiana State Numismatic Association scheduled for the first weekend in December has officially been canceled.We will be contacting dealers throughout the weekend and sending out notifications to ISNA members. This is always a great show. The Saturday youth auction is always well attended with most of the dealers make donations.

Keeping Fingers Xed

Coin Shows | Mokie

The largest coin show regularly held in Pennsylvania; the PAN show is on for the last 3 days of October. I will be there but the happiness I feel is tempered by the constant threat of Covid 19 and the fact that cases throughout Pennsylvania are increasing again. If it were just me, I would take my precautions and feel quite confident, but I have a wife, child, and 89-year-old mother that I also have to consider.

The Best Coin Show In Pennsylvania In the Fall! Word!!

Coin Shows | Mokie

Nowadays, a lot of us, including me, buy most of our coins via the internet. This is way different from when I started collecting back in the late 1960's. In those days, even Department Stores had a coin and stamp counter, Heck even the local Woolworth's had a section of the store where you could buy a Red Book, a Lincoln Cent Folder, and all the other associated supplies. Local coin shops, at least in the Pittsburgh area, were plentiful, and there was always mail order through a dealer you might have spotted in Coins Magazine, or the Numismatic News. Those days are gone, for the most part, but the local, regional, or national coin shows are still around and are still one of the best ways to fill your want list, meet your fellow collectors (I really do feel completely at home surrounded by my fellow hobbyists), and even learn a thing or two. The Pennsylvania Numismatic Association (PAN) is hosting their Fall show this week, 17-19 October, in beautiful Monroeville PA. There will be about 120 dealers, ANACS will take your coins for grading, and there are a number of speakers, to include Clifford Mishler, holding forth on the 18th. As if that wasn't enough, here are the top 11 reasons you should attend the Fall PAN show:1. Parking is Free, Admission is Free, Spending time at the traveling Burns Library is Free, Distinguished Speakers are Free, and the KidZone is Free (for all YNs under 18).2. Clifford Mishler is going to speak about the remarkable Chet Krause on Friday afternoon. Cliff is a personal Numismatic Hero of Mine.3. The weather should be excellent with no rain, or snow, or other natural calamities in the forecast.4. Monroeville is conveniently located off the Pennsylvania Turnpike for those of you coming from other parts of Pennsy.5. Monroeville is just a Parkway, a tunnel, and a Parkway from beautiful downtown Pittsburgh.6. The concession stand in the convention center actually has moderate prices, an excellent breakfast burrito, and a $5 soft drink you can refill for free all day long.7. The convention center is adjacent to the Monroeville Mall, which is WORLD FAMOUS for being the Mall featured in George Romero's Dawn of the Dead.8. Clubs including the Harrisburg Coin Club, the West Penn Coin Club, the Liberty Seated Collectors Club, Western Pennsylvania Numismatic Society, PAN, and the Barber Coin Collectors Society, will be present to answer your questions and solicit your membership.9. There will be outstanding competitive exhibits available for your viewing pleasure and you can vote for Best of Show.
