    I heard last evening around 5 pm that the early bird ,after set up the show had strong traffic , im guessing that the spring holidays passover and easter also had something to do with people coming out asap.
    Due to religious services ..... but ill echo again this show has always been a favorite, recalling the 1st show where dealers were throwing table fees for the following year, to the Battle field group right after the show closed.

    Just talked to a friend who attended today - Saturday- he said it was 'Packed" and the dealers said it has been crazy.

    Echoing watersports, i was there yesterday and the bourse floor was very crowded indeed.

    Gettysburg is a tourist town and after last year, folks are itching to get out.

    Every dealer i spoke with commented on how busy they were and how good sales have been.

    I reconnected with a few dealers i have not seen in a few years and the general concensus is that good coins are hard, and getting harder to find.

    Although i always seem to find one nice coin at this show. This year it was a super bright and frosty cc morgan dollar in 66 from gus tiso; fairly priced as well. First time i ever met and dealt with gus. We talked for a while about coins, and that was enjoyable and educational.

    Mr. Dixon and crew put on a good show and i plan to go back for the September edition. Who knows what the coin market will look like then?

    Sorry to have missed it. I've been to a couple and enjoyed them. The next visit should be the Eisenhower Ballroom, although Altoona is a fun place to visit.
