Romancollector Posted January 19 · Member Share Posted January 19 (edited) Hi everyone, Thought I'd share my purchases from this year's NYINC. I will admit that I was disappointed to have only acquired 3 coins as I had acquired 11 at last year's show. I simply didn't find many things I was looking for. For one, certain dealers I purchased from previously had smaller inventories. There were many pieces that I was interested in, but decided not to purchase for one reason or another (i.e. not high-grade enough, surface issues, no pedigree, price...etc.). Nevertheless, I was glad to be able to attend the show on the early-bird day. I also had the pleasure of meeting @Ed Snible in line as I was waiting to enter the show. Unfortunately, I didn't see anyone else from numisforums. During my trip to NYC, I also visited the cloisters, a museum operated by the MET that focuses on medieval art. The museum was absolutely stunning, with panoramic views of the Hudson and equally gorgeous interiors which had many building elements such as doorways, stained-glass windows and even ceilings from the 11th-13th centuries. This museum was very quiet compared to the MET's main building, and I would recommend it to anyone visiting NYC (even if medieval art is not you're thing)! I will post my photos from the cloisters later in this thread. For now, here are the coins I acquired. Octavian denarius rv. colum - ex Lanz 76 (31 May 1996), lot 360, acquired from Baldwins Tiberius denarius - ex CNG Triton VIII (10 January 2005), lot 1091, acquired from CNG. This pedigree was found by @kapphnwn. Trajan denarius rv. Divus Trajan Pater - acquired from Martina Dieterle Also, feel free to share any of your NYINC purchases!
