I attended the last WFM in Denver. There was a long line as soon as I reached the convention center. The attraction was a display of the ten 1933 double eagles that had recently been discovered. Yes, I got a good, longing look at these beautiful coins. I took a pic. Before the weekend was over, I viewed them again.
This was one of many highlights. There were many exhibits to see, dealers to visit, books to buy, catalogs to pick up.
Denver has much to offer the sightseer. Besides a trip to the Denver Mint, there was a tour of the Capitol Building with its gold topped dome. I climbed the 90-something steps to the top and took more pics.
Colorado Springs is not far from Denver. A drive up Pikes Peak was a highlight of this trip. The scenery going up is absolutely gorgeous. The temp at the base of the mountain was 82 degrees. At the top, it was 30 and sleeting!
A day a ANA HQ was one to remember. Exhibits of the 1804 dollar and 1913 Liberty nickel stood out, along with a pilgrimage to the Harry Bass Collection. When can you see a complete set of $3 gold pieces--including the unique 1870-S?
My last trip to Denver was one of my favorite trips. Wish I could be there this year too.
