Hello! I would love to go to a coin show, I haven't seen any advertised around me though. I have actually bought some metals recently, so if you are aware of current pricing, you'll have an idea of what I paid. =) I've been pondering some other metals, waiting for my Mercury Dime design Palladium coin, whenever that comes out!!?? I do plan on purchasing more, it was my first set of purchases for this year, kinda like getting my feet wet for 2011.... I'm also pondering foreign currency but I'm not sure my brain can handle that... Last week I had a major craving for gyros so I went to the local greek deli and stuffed my face with one! Glad you had a fun time with your dad!
