Copperheads in my backyard West of Houston.
One of the biggest surprises of my life was when I started to reach into my mailbox on my front porch and discovering a copperhead had climbed into it. Those suckers can climb.
A bullion report as well. Lots of pictures of your purchases and the
show itself. Thanks!!
They moved it to Conroe, perhaps to avoid draconian City shutdowns.
Far up I-45! Why not go for Huntsville?
Yee, they can climb. Going to bed one night and there was one on the kitchen floor trying to climb up on the counter. Sliding up the cabinet. I think one of our storm doors didn't close all the way and it got in the space. A couple of days later we put up a new door. We live in Colorado County.
I went to a "Coin Club Show" in Houston one time. It was several dealers with tables set up. The event was packed with collectors looking to buy stuff. The dealers were all busy visiting with each other and special friends. They were not selling because they ignored people they didn't know. Needless to say, I didn't see any transactions, left early and never went back. Real coin dealers don't exist in Houston.
There was one in University Center that was really good and I spent a lot of Saturdays and cash there. There was another up in Humble that was good. But this was years ago.
I saw some of the same going on when I was at the show in 2018 (or 2017?). Just ignored those guys and went to other tables. Found some good deals & a lot of variety. I really hit a jackpot with a seller's junk bin of 2/$1 that included some higher-end 17th & 18th century foreign & tokens.
I always say you can't find if you don't look.
Also, ANACs will be on site this year. I'm thinking about going just to take advantage of their 10/$112 promo. Although a few of the coins I have worth slabbing are easily over the $500 apiece value limit. Guess I'll have to see what the upcharge is.
I wonder how they determine that? I have quite a few that might be over that and might not be depending on the grade they give it.
At least that's what he told me a few years ago. Not sure that it's true
Not in Houston, but I see this behavior at my local shows all the time. It's as if they are daring you to do business with them. At the last local show I went to, I was standing there when the proprietor came back from the lunch counter with his food. He set his food down, picked up some kind of a book/ledger and proceeded to peruse that for a good minute without looking up at me once. I finally just turned and left at which point he looked up and said something to me but I just kept going.
It's in Conroe isn't it?
Yes by Conroe Airport
Went today and all the dealers were very nice but there is always one turd and he lost a sale. Went to another dealer and bought my coin
