Update # 9: Coin Show!

Young Numismatists Exchange | thatcoinguy

Hello fellow YNs and YNH!

Been a bit of a week for me. In person school is... complicated. But I am surviving, and thanks to everyone in my life and the people over here at ANA, I have kept my sanity. Anyway, I did some neat numismatic stuff over the past week-ish. I went to another of the MCCA's meetings, and got a set of all the dates from the 50s in cents and 3 air tight holders for dimes. Sadly, I don't have anything to put in them now, but I have them for the future.

In addition to going to the club, the Blue Ridge Numismatic Association had their annual yearly coin show, in which I got some nice stuff. First, when I went to the ANA booth, they were offering free proof sets to YNs. Originally, I was offered a 2019 proof set, but after learning that I already had one, they gave me a 1972 set that I accepted graciously. Then, as I was browsing one of the dealers stock, I spotted a bin full of silver quarters for $5 a piece. After some digging, I pulled out an amazing (for the age) 1942 Washington Quarter. There were some other really nice ones in there, but I resisted the temptation to buy them because I am focusing on my Franklin Halves right now. While browsing, I met a really nice dealer, who offered my a free 1921 penny!

At the coin collecting supplies booth, my mother purchased the following for me: A quarter tube for my bicentennial quarters, a record book so I didn't have to look at pics of my folders to see which ones I am missing, 100 cent flips (the ones I had turned out to be Dimes), and a Sacagawea Folder that I am filling as a present for my grandfather's birthday, which is coming up. Finally, as we were leaving, my dad surprised me with an American Revolution Bicentennial medal that he got for two dollars. He also purchased (for himself [I'm getting him into collecting!]) a Darth Vader bullion coin from the British mint.

I didn't get the chance to do any roll searching this week, which I was sad about, but I hope to find a chance to get to the bank sometime this week.

Keep collecting,


P.S. I have a lot of blogs in the works. Expect some posts in the near future.
