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.

Day 2 at WFM

World's Fair of Money | Conan Barbarian

so today i was a page for a whole 10 hours at the WFM and had a blast. i first started by helping the dealers set up and get ready for the day and then while doing that i had a look around to see what each had to offer. there were many great sites to see and coins to look at and it made the time fly by faster then i thought. i did end up seeing what the ANA had in their exhibit (including a 1804 dollar, 1792 half disme, 1933 eagle, 1913 V nickel, and many banknote errors that were mind blowing). i also went to the mint's section who had the 1974 D aluminum cent, 1933 double eagle, a 100,000,000 USA certificate, and a sheet of 100,000 dollar bills. i also asked if they had any of the enhanced uncirculated sets on hand but they were sold out. but i did find a dealer who was selling them for $35 and i bought 3 so far and sold one to a different dealer for $40. other dealers that were selling this set were offering $50 which was absolutely absurd but i got myself one for a reasonable price without any trouble. i also got my first half dime and lots of auction catalogs to look through the high end coins that are being sold. i am so sorry that i cant post any pictures its just that i havent got a chance to settle down and even writing this blog is a bit of a time restraint so i will write again tomorrow hopefully with some pics.
