Some of yall might have realized that I haven't been very active lately. That's mainly because about 2 months ago I was accepted for a program called Witter U. The program was put together by Seth Chandler and his team of employees and interns. It took place over the last week in San Francisco, CA. It was intended for YN's ages 13-21 and was attended by young numismatists from all over the country. Luckily I was accepted and got to go to San Francisco. It was truly incredible. Not only did I get to meet the team of instructors (Steve Feltner, David McCarthy, Devin Hipp, Jim Stoutjesydk, John Brush, and Kevin Kaufmann). But I also got to spend a week with my best friends from the internet (some of them I have known since I began collecting almost 6 years ago!). We were given what was basically an ANA Grading seminar with the PCGS grading set plus some super nice coins owned by the instructors. We started out doing individual grading and then got into groups and did competitions. I feel like I learned a lot and really sharpened my grading skills (I started with about 50% accuracy, by the last competition it was around 70%) I also got the chance to have a 2-hour internship with Seth in the shop. We sorted morgan dollars, talked about our numismatic experience, and Seth showed me some of his most expensive coins (Pan Pac, Prooflike 1803 Heagle, 27-D $20 MS66+, etc). It was a cool experience and I had a lot of fun. At the end of the course, we had a graduation ceremony. We got diplomas and each student recieved a custom PCGS Witter U slab with a morgan dollar. I got super lucky and my dollar happened to be a beautifully toned, flashy 1881-S Morgan! And in addition to these gifts, PCGS also gave us a free 1 year Gold membership and 4 free coin submission vouchers! The whole experience was great and I learned a lot. I am also super motivated to work on my collection and start flipping coins for profit. I am so happy I was part of this ordeal and that I got to spend it with my close friends. Thank you to Seth and all the people who donated and worked to make Witter U a reality!
