This is my first post, I found this place after purchasing some lots in the above auction ad talking to other collectors about them.

Did anyone else participate in the auction?

I was away to our anniversary and totaly forgot about the auction. Reservations were made prior to seeing this auction and happened to be the same week that we are away. I should have bid prior to living town. Maybe next time around.

I purchased around 10K worth of coins. Dr. Pineda had an epic collection!

I went mostly after the group lots and was the underbiddder on a few of the nice ones. I tried to get one of the 1909S 50C but was out bid on both. I ended up with around 20 pesos, 2 of which are 1912-S. Fifteen 50C, none higher than MS64, Fifteen 20C with a couple of proofs but all in lower grades i.e. 62-63. Only picked up two 5C, a 1903 PR raw, and a 1908 PR64 PCGS, 22 one centavos, all raw. and a complete set of 1/2 centavos with a few extra  to spare.

I was also out bid on the lot containing the cullion leper colony coins, but as luck would have it; I purchased a larger collection for about half of what I bid on in the Pineda collection. These were purchased from a deal at the greater atlanta coin show held last month. He told me that he had, had them for a while and I was the first one to even know what they were.
