    The show saw 1016 collectors through the doors with over 60% coming through the doors on Friday. This was an average number of attendees for this show. I met several board members and I want to say "Thank you" to everybody who attended!

    Everything was selling from 2X2 carded common wheat cents (surprising to me) to mid 5 figure gold pieces. Overall the dealers were very satisfied with their sales. One dealer said he could leave Friday because he had exceeded his sales expectations. There were 7 ancient and foreign dealers who did very well. I was very pleased with the show and pleased with the number of dealers who submitted their contracts for the April 2-4, 2020 show.

    The Ballroom is being renovated and one of the partitions at the Reeded Edge tables would not go all the way into the wall and protruded out several feet. A big Thanks to Rob Lehman for his "overcome and adapt" philosophy! Several ceiling lights went out and would not come back on, which left several dealers "in the dark!" Not literally, but they depended heavily on their table lamps.

    Jim Hirtle gave the Coin Collecting class, which had 5 kids. He gave autographed copies of his book on coin collecting and emailed me last night wanting me to invite all church youth groups, scouts, etc to the April 2020 show for his presentation. The April 2020 show is April 2 for setup and early birds and April 3-4 for the public. The September show is September 10 for setup and early birds and September 11-12 for the public.

    We had no security issues! And, believe it or not, this time nobody left any clothing or coins behind. The only thing left behind after the show was a very well used black walking cane with silver duct tape. If it was yours, call the Eisenhower hotel and claim it.

    I purchased 3 Proof Mercury dimes (2-1941 1 PCGS 1 NCG and 1-1942 PCGS), 2 proof (1942) PCGS quarters, an old ANACS photo cert MS63 Pilgrim Commemorative half, a Westminster, MD bank silver round and a small box of "stuff." Coins look better in hand and are not washed out, spotted, etc.
