Back from January Shows and A Neat Hat Trick

12 Jan

We’re back from a very busy week and weekend in both New York for the New York International Numismatic Convention  and Tampa for the FUN (for Florida United Numismatists) Coin Show. Despite always being stretched pretty thin, we love being at both shows, so it’s worth the trouble.

As you can see above, the bourse in New York is “intimate” and really makes you wish you succeeded with your 2015 New Year’s Resolution to lose weight. FUN, on the other hand, is like shopping in Walmart–vast and full of things you want but don’t really need. Below Dan is smiling because he’s not in New York in the ice and cold, at least not yet.

Here’s one of my purchases from FUN–Moche pottery. It has nothing to do with coins, but it’s pretty darn cool anyway. And it looks like my uncle, Fred!

Happy New Year everyone! Here’s to a prosperous, healthy, and coin-filled 2016. Oh, the “hat trick” in the title will come in the next post.
