Day 1 of World's Fair of Money Vacation (Photos)

World's Fair of Money | FortWorthCollector

These are all of the photos from the first day of my trip. I was unable to load them before because the site said the file size of each photo was to large. I now have an app that shrinks the file size of the photos so enjoy.

Day 3 of World's Fair of Money Vacation (Mint Closed)

World's Fair of Money | FortWorthCollector

As everyone who has been reading my blogs knows I had a very well laid out plan for my Denver trip and the World's Fair of Money. Unfortunately on Wednesday I arrived very early in the morning to guarantee my spot in line for the mint tour to find that it was closed until the following Monday because the guards that help with the tour where all at the show. So I will have to plan a trip back to Denver someday to take that tour. That is kinda good as it gives me a reason to drive back and see all of the wonderful mountain views.

Day 4 of World's Fair of Money Vacation

World's Fair of Money | FortWorthCollector

Thursday was my first day at the World's Fair of Money and what an exciting day it was. During the morning I browsed the first few rows of the show and picked up two Rick Harrison hand signed labeled slabs. One was a 1921-D Brilliant Uncirculated Morgan Silver Dollar and the other was a Rick Harrison Silver Medal. After that Rick Harrison showed up in person and took photos with show attendees and signed autographs. I then was off to a Money Talk session about CAC & Their "Green Beans" on PCGS and NGC Coin Holders which was very informative and well presented. After the Money Talk I returned to the Bourse floor and meet up with Andrea from the Coin Couch and gave her a 1921-D MS-63 Morgan Silver Dollar as a gift and gave her some back ground on what made it special. We later filmed an episode of the Coin Couch about the gift.Here is a link to the YouTube video https://youtu.be/26BAZxL6WeILastly I picked up an 1893-S VG8 Morgan Silver Dollar it really set me back a bit but was a very good price for the grade.

Inspired at WFM

World's Fair of Money | CoinLady

If a collector isn't inspired at the World's Fair of Money, where could they be? A few years ago, the WFM featured a displayif the first double eagle, the unique 1849. Next to it was the famous 1933. There were the first and last issues of $20 gold.

day 3 at the world fair of money

World's Fair of Money | Conan Barbarian

today was another great page day at the WFM and had a blast viewing the exhibits put together by fellow collectors (which i will go into more detail in a further blog) i also went to the auction lot viewing that stacks had set up and got to hold many ultra rare and high grade coins which was so captivating that it took me a while to put the coins down and see other parts of the show. the only unfortunate thing about the show was that none of the dealers there had any empty dansco albums for sale but there are plenty of other items to compromise the cavity. i also participated in the treasure trivia the ANA had and got a few interesting pieces filling out fun facts surrounding the numismatic world. i bonded with a couple of the dealers there that were very nice and wanted me to have a great time there. i also went to the denver federal reserve and saw a few very interesting bank notes and lots of great pieces of currency created by the US and its states. sorry again for no pictures i will contact the ANA because i think there are too many pictures in storage that i have used in the past because i love using them so much that i cant upload any more but thanks for baring with me.
