New additions to my Morgan Dollar Set

Coins-United States | FortWorthCollector

The ANA World’s Fair of Money in Denver was very kind this last year to my Morgan Dollar collection. I was able to add 5 new coins to the set. As most of you know my main goal was to pick up an 1893-S as it is one of the rarest coins of the set in any grade. I am very pleased with the one I was able to obtain that was in my price range. I was also able to acquire a nice 1899 Mirco O which I have had a hard time finding in my local area in nice grades. The 1901-O, 1904 & 1921-S I was able to get in mint state grade that fit my budget. I hope everyone enjoys the photos and coins. Also I would like to mention that for Christmas I received a new DSLR camera so I hope that I will be able to share even better looking photos in the future.

Day 3 of World’s Fair of Money Vacation (Denver Mint & Argo Gold Mine & Mill Tour)

World's Fair of Money | FortWorthCollector

For the third day of my trip, I had changed my itinerary to include the Denver Mint instead of going on the forth day as I had planned. So I woke up around 4:00 and got dressed and headed out of Colorado Springs so that I could be first in line to get tickets for the Mint Tour. To my surprise they had closed the Mint tours that week because the security that works the tour was at the show. I was able to get a picture of the front gate though. After leaving down town Denver I headed to Idaho Springs to go on the Argo Gold Mine & Mill tour. It was a great tour and very informative but if you have bad knees I would not recommend it.

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.

The World's Fair of Money is getting ever closer

World's Fair of Money | FortWorthCollector

So for everyone that is attending the World's Fair of Money, it is getting ever closer to being time to pack your bags and hitting the road. I of course have made my reservations months ahead of time for my hotel. I will be staying at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Denver right across the street from the convention center. I chose the Hyatt Regency because of the location, free internet, and slightly lower parking prices than the Sheraton. I will end up paying about $209 a night but I have a king room with view and I am closer to the convention so less walking the streets and more walking the show. The ANA has their deal for $184 a night at the Sheraton or $189 a night at the Magnolia. Of course those are both good deals but do a little research and find the things that are important to you for your stay. Check out some of the travel sites and see what deals you can find. I used booking.com for my hotel free cancellation, pay at the property, no service fees, and it was easy. Post in the comments if you have found any goods deals or where you are planing on staying. Also keep your eyes peeled for my next post on some restaurants I am planning on trying.

World's Fair of Money | FortWorthCollector

The 2017 World's Fair of Money is inching ever closer to its week filled with spectacular and exciting numismatic activity's. While the days count down I am very busy making final preparations for this wonderful event. I am currently putting the finishing touches on my itinerary and just need a list of the money talks to complete the task. I have also been meeting my savings goals to help pay for some large purchases and the trip itself. So far everything is going well the hotel room is booked, new luggage ready to be packed, some new clothes for looking good, vacation request approved for work, and a new camera for sharing the event.For those of you that are interested the interactive floor map for the convention is starting to fill in with the dealers that will be attending. If you will be attending the convention as well now would be a good time to look for a hotel room as they seem to be filling up fast.
