ANA show in Pittsburgh

ajaanajaan Posts: 15,536 ✭✭✭✭✭

I'm considering attending this show. Is there a list of dealers somewhere on the web? I couldn't find one. Is this usually a good show to attend?

    I just checked the ANA web site money.org and the table
    application is still posted. Mid winter/Spring ANA shows are
    attended by the large dealers and many regional dealers. It
    is about 200-300 tables if memory serves me.
    This is nothing like FUN. I've never attended a show in Pitt.
    I'm sure many here including dealers will attend and set up.

  • I wish I could be there. I live in Pittsburgh and will be traveling for work the entire time. Oh well, next time around!

    If common sense is so common, why is it so uncommon?

    Holy cow, they have a coin show in Pittsburgh? What are the dates? May drive down if the Pens are in town.

    I think I'll drive down and check it out.

    Is there still that little hole in the wall French place around the corner from the Convention Center?

    @ajaan Check with Ben at the show Sunday, I'm pretty sure this is the show our Coin Club chartered a bus to go down there and back for the day. I think deposits are due soon if you're going.

    As of today there are 40 booths still available!

  • PTVETTERPTVETTER Posts: 5,205 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I see two factors here
    The cost to dealers keeps going up
    The market isn’t what it use to be!
    This puts show promoters between a rock and a hard spot just as the dealers are in!

    The mid-winter is a smaller show, but it is still very well-attended. We (Kagin's) will be holding the auction, and I can vouch for the material in it. A few weeks ago, I picked up a 300-coin consignment that was all put back in the mid-20th century. The coins were mostly in old paper envelopes and hadn't been screwed with by coin dealers over the years, and were only sent through grading once, so the sale is full of fresh, original, conservatively-graded collector material. Sorry about the shameless plug...

    Where and when can we see the catalog images?

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." --Teddy Roosevelt, April 23, 1910.

    The descriptions are being written as we speak and things will be posting to iCollector in the next few weeks. I'll try and find a few highlights to post here.

    I'm going to be there with bells on. Pittsburgh is a great City and I always hit it up, when I'm on the east side of the country. Looking forward to the show, the auction and to meeting many board members such a @StrikeOutXXX , @PTVETTER and @Regulated .

    OK, made some stickers/tags so maybe I can meet some folks from here. I've only met a handful of forum members over the 13 years I've been here, mostly locals up near Buffalo though.

    Our little coin club and a larger coin club just north of us chartered a 56-passenger bus for the 4-hour ride down to Pittsburgh on Friday the 29th. Sadly, we need at least 40 passengers for it to go, and we're at 20 now, so hopefully more sign up. For $50 round trip, including admission, cheaper than gas for 8 hours of driving plus I can nap. We should get there right at opening (10) and think we're leaving when they close at 6.

    I really like that bus ride idea.
    I would definitely sign up for something like that if I was up there in the Niagara Frontier.
