Always a good read, Charmy.  And I too know the excitement of flying out of the Orange County Airport, out over the Pacific Ocean, getting to see that jetty-bordered channel of boats, early morning in my younger years.

But more than this, you combine the highlights of creating an identity for yourself so beautifully — dare I say… legendary — by surrounding your retail-dealer experience with so many of the finer points of life:  crisscrossing America from a birds-eye view, cordial & elegant hotel stays, fine dining, fine wines, and camaraderie and long-lasting friendships with others in the numismatic field.

Raising a glass… cheers to you!

Doug (/1Buffan) Whenry (the dude in the black vest and glasses) of New Holland, PA, is yet another Lancaster Countian, and Red Rose CC member with a verrrrrrrry important collection that was mostly still raw the last time we spoke. He has been a great friend. Ironically, he is also an avid collector of sample slabs.

Just perused the photos again, and the stunner "coin" that really caught my eye was the 2021 PCGS 35th Anniversary commemorative medal.

If you weren't expecting Curtis Mease to present that to you, it must have been a very special moment, and a wonderful keepsake to take home from the Baltimore show.

Gorgeous!

Ooh I see, you went there for poker. Yes, yes, yes, the casino is the most important and important thing, I agree. No kidding, it's a mega trip, I'm sure you had a lot of fun. I remember the first time I played https://fairgocasino-au.com/casino-gomes/ myself and got swept away... The winner is the one whose combination of five cards proves to be the best, or the one who can force the other players out of the game with bets or bluff bets and remains alone until the cards are revealed.

She does find time to take care of herself at shows. I run my backside ragged and arrive home “tore down, almost level with the ground”. Then I need max recuperation time for a few days. I do FUN for the ANA, and do whatever the ANA wants me to do at every ANA show. Since Pittsburgh Spring 2019, that’s been tableholder registration. It will be again in March in Phoenix. Spring training ball nearby. I do this maybe 4-6 shows a year. Charmy is a full timer.
