At Islands, the table is in the name of China Coins. See you there.

Hey!  Thanks to Pandora for arranging this!
It was great to meet and re-meet you all!

Sorry I didn't make it back for breakfast.
I'm not alone.  Apparently, only the true "die-hards"
showed.  Ha!

No pictures for those who cannot attended?

Sorry.  I do not recall anyone taking pictures.

We were too busy goofing around.

The resident Press photographer was otherwise
engaged.

Next time, promise.

But to echo Mirkkanen, it was a joy.

Was there a large supply of Chinese coins at the Long Beach coin show?  How were prices?......

I'm sorry too. No pictures but I also had a great time putting faces to forum names at the Friday night dinner. I am not a great judge of coin shows but it seemed to me that Chinese coins were well represented. I didn't find anything I needed so I didn't get down to doing any price negotiating.

I am very sorry to have missed the dinner at Islands. Panda Halves and I had a good conversation at breakfast. I was also very happy to see Obsidian and Mirkkanen and other familiar collectors at the show.

Was there a large supply of modern Chinese material at Long Beach? Yes, there was but not a vast amount, and no one was giving it away. I will write my usual report for Pricepedia but one thing I noticed is that the general spread of knowledge of prices has made it increasingly difficult for buyers to pick off major bargains from dealers.

Best wishes,

P.S. Breakfast attendees gained early entrance to the show.
