PNG Announces Dates of 2015 Dallas Show

The Professional Numismatists Guild (http://www.PNGdealers.org) has scheduled a show in Dallas, Texas, Thursday to Saturday, February 26 – 28, 2015.

“The Dallas Coin & Paper Money Show sponsored by the PNG will be held at the Gaylord Texas Resort & Convention Center, and it will be open to the public,” said PNG Executive Director Robert Brueggeman.

“This will be an opportunity for collectors in the Southwest to meet and do business with many PNG member-dealers from around the country who usually do not attend the local Dallas area shows in Fort Worth, Grapevine and Richardson, Texas.  We also are accepting applications for bourse tables from non-PNG members,” added PNG President Terry Hanlon.

Dallas-based Heritage Auctions is the official auctioneer for the show.

Special discount room rates of $190 a night are available at the Gaylord Texas Resort, conveniently located about seven miles from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport (DFW).

Additional information about the show will be announced in the coming months.

For bourse applications, visit http://www.pngdealers.org/events or contact the PNG by phone at 951-587-8300 or by email at info@pngdealers.org.

By Doug Winter(Douglas Winter Numismatics)

 

If I had to pick one single Liberty Head gold coin which would generate a whirlwind of interest if posted on my website, it would likely be the 1864-S half eagle. This is the rarest collectible half eagle from this mint (after the ultra-rare 1854-S), and it is clearly one of the four or five rarest gold coins ever struck at the San Francisco mint. In my estimation, there are around 30 examples known with Full article at the source>

By Doug Winter (Douglas Winter Numismatics)

While doing the research for my new online reference about Type One double eagles, I began to look for finest known examples for each specific issue. For some Type One double eagles this is easy as there is a clear finest known coin. For others, this is difficult as there might be a few examples bunched at the top of the Condition Census which are hard to separate.

It is my opinion that the highest graded… Full article at the source>
