Default Coin Show Pickups!

Went to my first coin show this morning with low expectations due to my experiences at comic and card conventions where you can typically get anything the dealers are selling at much better prices online. I made a list of what I was interested in beforehand, and went to both eBay and Provident to see what a good price would be for the items I wanted. Well I came away from the coin show with 2 out of 3 of the items I most wanted, and a LOWER prices than I've found anywhere online! I can't wait to go again next month!





(4) 2011 Kookaburras (They had 6, and I kinda regret not buying the last 2)
(4) 2013 Pandas
(2) 2013 Britannias
4 oz. Silver Eagle Knockoff Round (Nice price and comes in a display box)


The only thing I was looking for I couldn't find was a 2011 Lunar Rabbit. But that's a little pricy for an ounce of silver anyway, so meh.

Congrats on the nice pickups!!!!!
Id hold every one of those coins as they will only go up in value and in 3 years dump them and buy a nice silver bar

Went back to the show over the weekend and picked up $10 in 90% for $150 which I thought was a steal and a couple Somali elephants. I wish Kooks were more popular around here, I never see any aside from the current year which I'm not a huge fan of.

I went to a coin show in VA on Saturday. I bought a xf+ $1.00 educational note. I traded a $5.00 gold liberty coin in on my purchase. Got $370.00 off the price of the note. I bought the coin in 2001 for $150. 13 years later i make a $220.00 profit. With inflation and a week dollar maybe i lost money? lol

An XF+ Educational is a nice note and sounds like you did really well.
