    It's just a short drive for me (about 35 miles).
    I think I'll be going on Friday the 10th.
    I'll see if I can scarf up another Draped Bust Half Cent.

    If I've got my count correct, there's 32 varieties of Draped Bust Half Cents spread over 8 dates (1800-1808, no 1801 dated coins).
    Five of them I consider too pricey for my budget.
    That leaves 27 I'm trying to collect.
    I've got 15 of them.
    That leaves 12 to shop for.
    I KNOW I can get most if not all of them from Chris McCawley (but not all at once).

    I'll also stop at the NGC table and submit two coins for slabbing.
    I'm skipping PCGS; they take WAY too long. I've had two coins with them for at least 4 months.
    And I only use ANACS for 20th century items.

    Do you mean "won't send any non-20th-century items to ANACS", or "won't send 20th century items anywhere but ANACS"?

    I would only use ANACS for 20th century items.
    But (with a few exceptions) I don't collect 20th century items.
    The few exceptions are:
    -- my birth year set (1941)
    -- the last 9 years of my IHC set
    -- my Early Silver Commemoratives set
    All of the exceptions are in PCGS or NGC holders.
    I have never (within memory) submitted any coins to ANACS.

    Well speaking of ANACS should we start taking bets on how many years the montly special is just going to be ASEs repeating over and over every month

    I'll make a quick stop at the show Friday.
    I'll be looking for a Draped Bust half cent variety to fill another hole in my set.

    And I'll stop at the NGC table to submit a couple coins.
    PCGS is off my list until they speed up their turn around time.
    4 or 5 months and still waiting for my last submission to them.

    Yes indeed, I'll be there!
    Baltimore is my favorite show on the circuit, there is just so much energy on the bourse! I love the city too (parts of it, lol). Never thought I'd veture too far away from the Long Beach shows, but now working with a company I get to see most of them.

    Baltimore has some of the best crab-cakes around, and being so close to the Orioles stadium is really cool!

    @kanga Friday is my Birthday
    Be sure to stop by & say Hi :)
