  • As I get ready to head out to Dallas for Heritage Auctions, I would like to give a special thanks to Marc Crane of Marc One Numismatics (@marc1coin) out here in Rancho Mirage, California, for mentoring me and helping me improve my skills about grading, and dealing in rare coins. I had a great time working alongside him and Madison, I would like to wish both of you very well in your future endeavors.

    I would also like to give a special thanks to the NexGen program (@nexgencts) hosted by the Professional Numismatists Guild for selecting Marc as my mentor and getting me in touch with him.

  • Today, I had a pretty great day at the North County Monthly Coin Show here in Anaheim, CA. I purchased several cool coins including my first ever trade dollar.

    In fact, this show was the first ever coin show I’ve ever been to, back in August of 2017.

    Just out of curiosity, I’d like to ask you guys, what was the first coin show you guys ever attended? Feel free to comment about!
