FUN Show fun!
Entry posted by Naked Angel ·
I was able to go to the FUN show this past Friday (the 10th), and it was probably the best time I’ve had at the show since I’ve been going. Living in Orlando has many advantages...and this is one of them! This was the biggest show that I can remember, with over 1000 booths. It was tough, but I saw it all in just over 3 hours. I was able to pick up a 2019 Libertad 5 piece silver proof set for a great price, along with 3 other coins that I needed for my collection. The gold panning people were there again, and I think in 10 years I might find enough to trade for a 1/10 oz, haha. I also participated in the coin grading contest at the NGC table, and while it was fun I think I’ll keep my day job! I didn’t do very well at all, so a new goal for this year is to be a better grader. Friday evening NGC hosted a reception for registry participants that I attended. They gave away a sample of the new Sacajawea dollar just for attending. Mark Salzberg spoke for a few minutes about going through the Armstrong Family collection, and it was really fascinating. They drew three raffle prizes and this guy won the last one! I won a 2020 Silver Panda, not bad if I do say so myself. It was a great start to 2020 and a great start to the collecting year! If anybody else was there tell us what you thought of the show.
