Texas Numismatic Association annual coin show

Coins | FortWorthCollector

The Texas Numismatic Association's annual coin show ran June 2-4 at the Arlington convention center. This years show was great, very busy and a lot of dealers showed up. I believe the show is now hitting its stride with the local coin collecting community as they become accustomed to the new show location.

I was able to run into a lot of old friends and make some new ones this year. I did not do as much buying this year as I have in past years just because the Worlds Fair of Money is just around the corner and I am saving my money up for that. I did however get a very nice 1921-D MS-63 Morgan Dollar that I plan to give as a gift to someone I am meeting at the Worlds Fair of Money. I believe it will be great because of course we will be in Denver where the coin was minted and it will be the first time either one of us has been there. Interesting fact the 1921-D Morgan was the first circulating silver dollar ever minted at the Denver mint and also the last year for Morgans to be produced.

You are welcome.


Level 6

It is always nice to go to a good show.

It was, especially since I have been avoiding shows the last few mouths to save for the Denver trip.


Level 6

Sounds like you had a great show. Congratulations! Have a good time in Denver. Nice touch about the gifting of the Morgan. Thanks!

Thanks, The person I am giving it to has a YouTube channel so maybe they will video it and share the history of it with the YouTube community.


Level 6

I went to that show years ago. There was a lot to see and do, great exhibits, and many coin people.

It was a great time. I was a little pressed for time that day and wish I could have stayed longer. The person I am giving the coin to has a YouTube channel so they will probably post a video with a little information I plan on giving about the coin. They are from Europe so it will be interesting to share U.S. coins with people from that side of the world.


Level 7

Sounds like you had a great time. That's a nice thing you plan on doing with that Morgan. Well I hope in the very near future they come up with a way to travel. Thanks for sharing your experience with us. Mike.

You are welcome Mike. I hope they do find a way for everyone to get out to a show at least once. It can't be beat.
