The differences between coin shows from the 80s and 90s and today
For those of you who walked the floor at large coins shows (like the recent Long Beach show) back in the 1980s or 1990s, and still do so today, what do you notice that is different? For example, would you see more raw coins back then? More SEGS and PCI coins? Are dealers setting up different now, catering to a younger demographic?
I'd be curious if there are things you miss 'back in the day' and also if there are improvements today?
I know more collectors (and dealers) are hunched over their iPhones now when it used to be the gray sheet.
What is your take and is it more or less an improvement today or not so much?
Genius, innovator, enlightened. Or so my mom keeps telling me.
