Check went out Priority Mail today so it's not just a maybe now. CCF will be at the FUN show in January.

We will have TWO booths this time. A corner booth with an adjacent straight booth!

Probably a dumb question, but does anyone know if the ancients selection is good at the FUN shows?

I'm there

To answer your question, I imagine with 600 dealers, the ancient pickins should be fairly decent

Florida would be one of the place I really like to go, I have my co-worker who retired down there.

Thanks vermontensium. Because that is pretty much all I collect (more specifically, Roman imperial) and I might go as long as work and college don't get in the way (its only a 3 hour drive north from where I live). And would be pretty cool meeting any CCF'ers there.

Great news Bobby and Susan ...

I know you must have learned a lot from the Philly ANA show ... and will without doubt apply those lessons to the FUN show.

Not sure I can make it ... but I extend in advance my best wishes to both of you and hope for a successful repeat.

Lots of "show and tell", coins/paper money being bought and sold, Third Party Graders are normally present to give advice and take submissions, and door prizes.

An overall great time to be had!

I know you "h82w8", but we are talking about the 2013 World's Fair of Money show in Chicago, also...
