And we all head to Central State Coin Show this week....
The coin market seems robust at the moment... but IMHO a good indicator will be the upcoming Central States Coin show held this week in Chicago... with 600 dealers setting up... this is certainly a top 10 show... We will be busy and hope to see you there if you attend! Jon
The Central States Numismatic Society’s 84th Anniversary Convention will be held in Schaumburg, IL, at the Schaumburg Renaissance Hotel and Convention Center, located at 1551 North Thoreau Drive, Schaumburg, IL 60173. Our event site is located in close proximity to Chicago’s premier suburban shopping destination, the Woodfield Mall. The area also boasts several hundred restaurants within a few miles of the convention site.
Where are the good coins?
So Long Beach coin show is over and granted that many dealers did not make it to the show because of the storms in the midwest.
With that said... its the same old story, really good quality coins are just not around.... At our last show we were able to buy a few nice coins but we continue to be selling more than we are able to buy. yes we are picky but as you know we would never sell a coin that we would not put in our own collection! That is our Mantra and we will continue to stay the course...
If you do have a great collection that you are thinking of selling, please let us know...we would be happy to help!

FUN SHOW WAS FUNTASTIC
Well the Fun show (The Largest Coin Show In USA) is now over and was incredible (not just for us, but all of the 600 dealers that set up)
It was non stop action from Set up day on Wed, til we finally closed up on Sat night... some die hards even stayed for Sunday
Coins were bought and sold and 99% of the dealers said it was in the Top 5 FUNS that they have ever done!
Looks like the coin market is still going to be strong for the next few months! We will be posting some NEWPS in the coming weeks...

Harry W. Bass Jr. Collection Auction Coming Jan 2023
Get ready for a BIG auction featuring magnificent U.S. gold and pattern coins from the Harry W. Bass Jr. Collection to be held during the Jan. 5 Florida United Numismatists show in Orlando.
The 103-coin offering includes the unique 1870-S Indian Head gold $3 piece graded Specimen 50 by Professional Coin Grading Service, which notes on the insert that the numbers 893 are engraved on the reverse. Along with many of the coins on offer, it has been known to a generation of numismatists as a core part of the exhibit at the American Numismatic Association’s Edward C. Rochette Money Museum in Colorado Springs, Colorado, since July 14, 2001. That display was dismantled this summer, and the proceeds will be used to fund philanthropic ...
New 10 Point Grading System Announced From NGC Called NGCX
For as long as I can remember.... dating back to my early collecting days in the 1960's-70's I always remember using the Sheldon scale of 1-70 for a basis of a coins preservation.
In 1949, the original scale was first presented in "Dr. William H. Sheldon's Early American Cents" titled "A Quantitative Scale for condition" as a way to grade Large cents. The scale is known today as the Sheldon scale. However it really developed in the 1970's when the ANA standardized the scale.
For many novice New collectors the numbering system does not really seem intuitive so in a burst of marketing genius NGC had come up with the idea of using the 1-10 system (currently in use for other ...

Baltimore Show Report - Some Good News
For the past few months, I have been mentioning an influx of new "youngbloods" dealers at shows... I just happened to read a friends post on her website about these "Baby Dealers" and I thought I would touch upon the subject.
Its one of the best things in any hobby to make sure that it continues.... not just collectors but also dealers... to that effort I give a kudos shoutout to Seth at Witter Coins who for the past two years has run a coin university for YN out in Ca.
Its actually great (and I dont feel that old) to see this new breed of dealers start out... these guys ranging from 16 to 25 have great energy and as they gain more and more experience Im sure they will be a great source for ...
CAC announcement that they will be a grading service 2023
CAC announcement that they will be a grading service...
This news is not really new as the chatter in the background has been going around for the past year or so....
Officially here is part of the announcement...
There have been many rumors swirling about the possibility of CAC becoming a traditional grading service and I believe it is time to address them. Technically speaking, the transaction has not been completed yet. However, I am extremely confident that the transaction will close by the end of 2022. If everything goes according to plan, we anticipate a “soft opening“ in the first quarter of 2023. The new company, CAC Grading, will have the same logo and will be located in a 29,000 square ft. facility in ............
