South Hills Coin Club Show Wrap Up

I spend my Sunday at the South Hills Coin Club show in beautiful Bethel Park today.  Corey and I manned the PAN table and spelled each other often so we could both enjoy the show itself.  Highlights include the purchase of a 1936-D San Diego Half in PCGS MS65 and a set of Canadian coins Cent through Half Dollar from the 1940s and older.
I also picked up an older copy of the Standard Catalog of World Coins for $5, a bunch of free coin magazines, and a couple of free Croatian Coins. 

While manning the PAN table, we had one gentlemen bring us 4 Silver Dollars, 1 Walking Liberty Half, and one 1939 German 2 Mark coin with Hindenburg on the obverse and a Nazi eagle and Swastika on the reverse, we had to tell him the coins were basically only worth their silver value, even the 2 Mark coin was only worth about $4.

Several others came by with stories of their own unknown hoards at their homes,
I told Corey next time, we should offer appraisals for a $1 donation.  10 coins maximum.  He seemed to like that idea, maybe in May at the PAN show.  I hope so.

It was a great day and I am already looking forward to volunteering at the NMS in March.

I like the commemorative. All of the old commemoratives are really nice, unlike the modern ones.
