Westford show report

4 posts in this topic



Another great show by Ernie. I arrived on time 9AM after a nice breakfast and I was gone before noon (run out of the money frown.gif). I had just one coin for sale 1882-CC morgan in NGC MS65 I traded it for $400 worth of coins grin.gif (actually $360 worth of coin and $40 back - it was a weak 65 and I was happy to traded it since I paid 64 money for it)

The show was not busy, or at least it did not seemed to be busy. the weather was horrible in the morning and I was expecting a bigger turnout. I still managed to buy a ton of coins and chat with Darin a little bit. There wasn't much new invenoty to look at I've seen many of these coins before, same old, same old overpriced and overgraded, and so many of them cleaned 893censored-thumb.gif.


It was another paradise for the vam hunters like yours truly - here are the purchases:

1854-O half

This coin was part of the trade for the CC Morgan, I know it's not problem free but there are some die characteristics that I liked - porosity over UNITED, halo effect on the obverse, porosity around lady liberty and over the date

1881-O Morgan another coin from the trade, simply amazing toning and under $50 too!!!!!

1921 Morgan VAM it's amazing I can find one at every show VAM 3A spiked tail feathers grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

1921 Morgan VAM Another part of the CC Morgan trade VAM5 double date - paid $12 grin.gif

1921-D Morgan VAM (???) Another part of the CC Morgan trade possible vam there is a small die gauge between ribbon and wreatch (right side) help please!!!! I thought it was worth the risk for less than $20893crossfingers-thumb.gif

Thanks for the update. I love to do trades on coins, and get money back. Makes me feel I've make money as well as purchased a better coin. grin.gif
