Here is one of the coins I acquired at the Anaheim Show. It is a 1987 Libertad. Slabbed and rated MS 65 by NGC. As you can see, I hope, it is very colorfully toned. That is a big weakness of mine. The Libertad is a bullion coin, much like our silver American Eagle and Canada's silver Maple Leaf. I started collecting them just because I like them. I usually just buy the BU coins. I saw this one and didn't even stop to ask how much. I just figured it would be out of my budget. My wife however wasn't so sure and inquired as to the price. Well I was very mistaken and snatched it up. This coin was bought on the last hour of our stay there. Never give up on that special coin. Thanks for looking!
I recently was lucky enough to add to my Mexican/Central American coin collection. From my regular coin dealer I obtained this nice Silver Balboa issued by Panama. This one is dated 1934. It is .900 silver, weighs 26.73 grams and has a diameter of 38.1 mm and a reeded edge. I had stuck to Mexican silver coins but have now also started collecting Latin American coins. I feel they add something nice to my collections and stick to the style and flavor of Mexico.
