Ouch. Best to err on the side of caution though. But if the Stacks Auction is still going forward it means not even one of us will get to see both Chapman Proofs in their sexy glory side by side 🥺😭

...On the bright side though, PSA has now certified a finest known! :lol: 😒 :lol:

OMG- Thats a EPIC post --- Kinda tells us Coin Weenies to Stay The Hell Home------ and
Lock up the Valuables and shelf adequate Quilted Northern
On the serious side- limit your travel activities and maybe think
of securing extra dry goods etc

I first thought preppers crazy but why not air on caution side
just in case.

May we all get through this safely!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and with God's speed !!!!!!!!!!!

I was never a big fan of toning, especially in a slabbed example. Be careful out there, it's getting a bit crazy.

Just left the local P.O. and driving home saw the first drive thru testing station being set up behind a Lee Physicians location here in Lee County, FL

Central Stated is dead for this spring. EAC is likely to follow.

Having a coin or stamp show in the US right now is like setting up a "Virus Buffet." The most vulnerable age group, in close quarters, etc. I's like doing a quilting show for the old ladies. Now one option is to combine coin/stamp and undertaker's trade shows in the same venue - there might be a certain "economy of scale."

Maybe people will take the 2+ weeks without mass entertainment, and learn to do things together as families and neighborhoods. Play with the kids and family dog. Experiment with new grilling recipes for the cat. Play music together or invent plays and other entertainments. Think of it as a wonderful break from the pressure and stress of obligatory activities and "soccer Moming/Dading."

Members might take some free time to "cherry pick" their own collections, or read a book or two or three....

Central Staes show is now cancelled. Too bad, I was looking Forward to see some familiar faces. Maybe things will be back to normal in August, for the National Money show.
