Good deal. I graduated from there two years ago. Now I'm in the workforce.

re: Tips from MT Coin Collectors




Got any recs for a nice hotel preferably near the arena that I will not have to sell my silver collection to stay at? I usually stay at the Hampton Inn and Suites right down from the Bridgestone Arena but it is booked out the night I am looking at coming down. The Hilton across the street is $319 a night.

I hate to admit this, but the wife and I are going to the Pink concert on March 2nd.

My favorite hotel is the Vanderbilt Marriott. It shouldn't be sold out in March and is only about 1.5 miles down broadway/west end. Do you need to be closer than that?

Umm, not really. Just love the ease of parking and not getting back in my car til I head home. That and I am a big fan of the Big River Brewery.

Thanks for the rec, just checked and they $179/night. Much more reasonable than $319.

Hmmm, seems I am batting a .1000 today...

At least I didn't ask to see anyone's coin purse...

On a postive note, I was just searching the local site I mentioned earlier in this thread and instead of searching "coins" in collectibles, I searched "dollar" and found a guy selling Morgan's and Peace dollars for $30. Sent him an email, waiting to hear back.

Can't speak for anyone else but I'm looking forward to seeing your collection and have been since you posted you would post pics of your collection (queue Bromance meme ). To me coins and their history are extremely interesting and make for a great hobby.

re: Tips from MT Coin Collectors


Just as a heads up to those in BR or near the EBR area, there's going to be a coin show at the Holiday Inn on airline near near the interstate on February 9 & 10 (Saturday & Sunday) where you'll be able to buy & sell coins as well as get your coins 'graded'. I've read one place that said the show was 8, 9 &10 but one that said it was on 9 & 10 but I did read that its supposed to be the first one in BR in 25 years. Personally I've never been to a coin show myself but seeing as how I grew up on comic books and sports cards in the late 80's through mid 90's, I'm looking forward to it. I used to go to the same Holiday Inn for comic/card shows when I was younger and it almost makes me feel like a kid again, but this time with coins, things that hold their value and I can actually buy things this time

Alright, no pictures but I went through and took inventory of what I have last night. I would do pictures but I suck at the interwebz.

(8) 1 oz. silver bars. Mostly APMEX older design and new design.
(1) 1 oz. 2012 Buffalo Nickel
(1) 1 oz. 2012 Canadian Maple Leaf
(1) 1 oz. 2012 Silver American Eagle
(2) 1/2 oz. 2012 Year of the Dragon bars
$1.00 1942-1945 War Nickels (About 1.125 oz. of silver)
(2) Morgan Dollars dated 1879 & 1883 from the Philadelphia Mint
(1) 1971 Eisenhower dollar from the San Francisco Mint which is 40% silver.

I also have about $500 worth of half dollars, a little more than $50 of 1979 Susan B. Anthony dollars, and about $50 of IKE dollars, various years.

Assortment of Silver half dollars, silver quarter, buffalo nickel, and steel pennies:
