The latest LVNS club meeting was held this past Saturday, April 14, 2012. The doors open at 2pm and the bourse was exceptionally large. There was a good buzz around as collectors and dealers bought and sold coins and bullion. The meeting started at 3pm, and there was barely an empty seat in the house. After a little bit of business which, was handled by our President, Joe Cavallaro. There were two excellent presentations. Joe talked about the 100 year anniversary of the Titanic sinking, and shared some really neat artifacts. Then Larry brought in an incredible Ship related collection of notes and coins. It is amazing to see how each and everyone’s passions shine through when talking about things they love. After a small break for refreshments, there was raffle mania in the house. I personally won a replica post card from the Titanic that was accompanied by an authentic 1912 Barber Dime, very cool! Then to my surprise I heard my name again and I won a 2012 Denver Mint Uncirculated Coin Set. So if you have a couple of hours feel free to join us at our next meeting it is truly a fun time, and a chance to talk shop with fellow enthusiasts! Next month we will be having our Annual picnic at Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs. Should you have any questions or would like to join please call Joe at 702-860-6032 for more information.
The next regular club meeting will be on Saturday, March 17. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

If you’re in Las Vegas this weekend be sure not to miss The Las Vegas Numismatic Society’s 49th Annual coin show! All of the information you need is right above. The Coin Raffle prizes are as follows:

- 3rd: 1/10 oz Gold Eagle
- 4th: GSA Silver Dollar
- 5th: Uncut Sheet of $1 Bills

The spotlight coin of the collection is without a doubt the Unique 1873-CC Liberty Seated No Arrows Dime, graded MS-65 by PCGS and bearing the Eliasberg pedigree. It is the only specimen known to exist, which makes it highly coveted among collectors of Carson City Mint coinage and especially those seeking to complete their own set. This much sought-after dime was purchased in 2004 for $891,250 from a Bowers and Merena auction by Rusty Goe, chief architect of the Battle Born Collection for the last 11 years, who later sold it into the Battle Born Collection, thus completing the set.
