Hello there! Looks like it's been over a month since I last posted so I figured it was time to post an update.
Over the Holidays, I visited my family in Maui. Was a great trip and while there I even stopped by one of the island's coin shops. Most of the coins seemed overpriced or average, but there was a 1947 Philippines General MacArthur set that really caught my eye:

Again, took a little break from the coin circuit. Had a nice trip to Texas to visit with some family over the Thanksgiving holiday. Hope you all had a nice Holiday as well.
Now that I'm back in SoCal, I'm back to hunting down some cool coins. Last week, I was pretty successful in finding some nice stuff at the local bid boards.

I arrived at the show a couple hours before it opened to the public in order to help set up. Set up went pretty smoothly and we had power run to all of the dealer tables well before opening. In total, 29 dealers were at the show and after opening to the public at 10am the show was fairly busy throughout the day. Seemed like the public really came out for the show. I'm sure the youth auction and the gold & silver coin raffle drew in some of the crowd to the show as well.
