You should have been there...
As Doug mentioned, we did lose a great friend prior to the show beginning. We shared several toasts in his name during the week and some of us thought of him often. However, with the occasion at hand, we went on with the week's tasks.
Oh, what a time we had. Let me sum it up by borrowing from a well know marketing campaign like this:
Taking a well-deserved vacation: $1,000
2010 P Lincoln in NGC MS67RD: -$40.00 (+$40 after trade)
2008 D SMS Lincoln in NGC MS69RD: a good price
Seeing Doug's coins: FREE
Meeting new dealers: FREE
PediCab ride (in the RAIN) with Free Shuttle waiting: $25.00
Saturday's NGC luncheon: Complimentary
Sunday at Cocoa Beech with my Wife: $40
Watching the cruise ships depart: FREE
Foot massage after walking the OCCC and parking: FREE (with the right partner!)
Spending the week at FUN with new friends: PRICELESS
I have attached a first shot picture of my 2010 P Lincoln and will add a few other pics in the journal.
Thanks to my wife (Emily), Doug, Mark, his dad, and our lost friend for making this trip everything it was. Some real memories were made here.
