    I went to the local coin club monthly show in Melbourne, Florida today. Very busy. About 40 dealers and the floor was packed with people, could hardly move. Brisk business going on and more than one dealer told me he has no inventory and could sell anything good he had.

    Was at one dealer's table where an older gentleman was showing a 1877 IHC VG-10, ANACS small white holder. Dealer, owner and I had a nice conversation about grade of the coin if it was sent in for re-holdering to NGC. I thought it would easily reholder at 10 and might go to 12. Clean coin. I even asked him if he was interested in selling it to me but he declined. Note, I did not undercut the dealer who was not trying to buy the coin nor was the owner trying to sell it. I am very sensitive to interfering in that kind of thing.

    Anyway, I didn't buy anything at the show but the highlight was a 1907 Quarter Eagle, slabbed by NGC at PR-68* Cameo. It was in a special holder signed by Miles Standish who the dealer told me is president of NGC and who changed his first name to match his ancestor, yes, that Miles Standish. I can't attest to the truth of any of that, it's just what he told me. But the coin itself was, as the Brits say, "absolutely fabulous"!

    Thanks for the correction. There is so much incorrect "stuff" out there so thanks for helping me to not perpetuate more of it.
