Will be there the entire show. Fogie knows already as we will be at table 638. Todd is nearby us too. Take with the dearest friend of VAMs, Jeff Oxman, and he's coming. Who else?

Was the best Long Beach in a long while. All three public days were decently attended and bourse traffic was steady from start to finish.

I sold a lot of Trade dollars. I didn't know that The Numismatist featured them in the latest issue. It was weird because I am known for having an extraordinarily large number of Morgan dollars (all attributed), often 4 full display cases and dozens of double-row back up table boxes. Due to a purchase of my final inventory, I had none. So I put out my study pieces for the Trade die variety book. Two new Trade discoveries were presented: one from fogie and one found by Mike, who was with him from Flagstaff.

Chatted with Bill Wolverton, Jeff Oxman, and Mark Witkower. Missed a number of regular table stoppersby.

Picked up a lot of PCGS submissions (four plus a show special one I dropped off on Wednesday) and an ANACS submission (gave them another one). So I got back all of my 2021 Morgan/Peace Mint tribute dollars. Only could assemble 3 full 6-coin sets, which were immediately gone. Put the remaining CC and O privy (6 in 70 and 1 in 69 for each I believe) in my case too late to sell those individuals. There's always eBay.

I was there Friday. Sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you all. Was there to dropped off some coins to Anacs. In talking with Paul from anacs, he said Fogie cleaned the entire floor already, lol. I looked around a little bit, met and had a little chat with Kerry (the guy who put together Buena Park show). That was it.

Was at Long Beach at booth 662(all the way in the back) saw Brent, JC and Mark W. I agree with JC it was the best LB show in many years, was busy all day long the 1st 2 days and most of Sat. Got to pick up from ANACS my 1883-O VAM#1C3 that I picked raw at the Orleans show L.V. last month.
