Well it’s early on but even with limited amount of dealers allowed to set up. 50 dealers (they snuck in an extra 5) it’s still hopping. Crowds outside waiting to come in. Busy for everone here.
Crowds ling up at 8:30 am

High tech temp check at door

Dealers need to have Sneeze guards
10 am because of 100 person limit line still outside
show specials inside

We got lucky when was the last time you could buy a bag of Morgans?
ide the show with social distance

    Thanks for your report.

    I'm guessing that the crowd outside was chanting ... "Morgans, Morgans, Morgans!"

    All glory is fleeting.

    We've been having 4 shows a year since June 2020 in Northern Utah. Good to see the rest of the coin collectors in the U.S. having the same opportunity now.

    Wow... Way over doing the precautions... based on show experiences here - gun shows that is. Yes, all wear masks, (well, mostly), temperature check upon entering, with registration, no real social distancing. Show was maxed out all weekend with more vendors than ever before. Thanks for the pictures and report. Cheers, RickO

    Thanks for the report. Seems what ive noticed getting more or new dealers is getting harder to come by

  • joebb21joebb21 Posts: 4,715 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Ill buy all the morgans and silver....

    I got there at around 9:15 and the line was down the block. since I set up at a table I was able to get to the front of the line (which caused alot of anger) but decided to only meet 1 person (5 minutes) and then left.

    may the fonz be with you...always...

    WOW what a great deal!
    My coin friend waited over 1 hour 15 minutes to get in and decided to go back home instead while I slept in at home!

    Jon ... missed seeing you especially when you previously protested the prior operation of the Parsippany show.

    In New Jersey we have a state mandate to wear masks. IIRC Utah doesn't have the same mandate. What were and are the infection positivity and death rates in that area? What were/are the voluntary procedures for temperature checks. Could people just ignore "warnings"? What was the percentage of mask wearers? Does this 77 year-old have a better or worse chance of dying if I went to such shows?

    edited to add: Anyone who doesn't ask questions like this hasn't been paying attention. The same questions can and will be asked about Fall Baltimore and January FUN.
