    Las Vegas show was busy

    PCGS is doing a good job of "bundling" their shows recently. The Long Beach show last month had Jerry West, Magic Johnson, and the Lakers Girls attend and sign autographs in conjunction with PSA. This Las Vegas Show was done in conjunction with a local coin show. Here is the report from Legend:

    THE FEBRUARY PCGS SHOW

    HAPPY DAYS AT THE INVITE

    From start to finish at this show there was a "buzz" in the room. Nice coins were easy to sell and do so fast. Due to another show being held nearby, attendence was as strong as we have ever seen it. These PCGS Invites really are great little venues and we strongly encourage people to attend. The Palazzo is a really nice hotel as well.

    Plus, there was that great little auction which did extremely well (we will discuss later).

    What made the show more curious was a lack of coins. A friend of ours who also does retail came right up to us in the first hour and "there is nothing here". We agreed. The dealers who were doing business were just trading "stuff" or generics. There were ZERO GEM Bust Halves, high grade DMPL Morgans, or any choice Early gold.

    As the dealers were getting coins back, if we saw anything neat and eye appealing we bought it. In the end, we did not buy much at all-and found ZERO for our extensive Want Lists. Of course we sold a ton.

    FEBRUARY WAS AN ALL TIME RECORD SALES MONTH FOR LEGEND!
