Anyone going?

Sat 10-5
Sun 10-4

This is a nice annual show located in Kent, WA, maybe 20 minutes from Seattle. I’ll be there Saturday looking for things I can’t live without. Wahoo!

Dave

Always looking for original, better date VF20-VF35 Barber quarters and halves, and a quality beer.

    I hope folks have fun. That's a great show down in Baja Tukwila and I'm sad to miss it.

    Your experiences at the Boeing show when you lived there!

    @bolivarshagnasty... The best thing about the Boeing show, aside from the amount of tables and great coins, was being able to meet the forum members from the NW area. Met several at those shows. Cheers, RickO

    Wow—night and day attendance compared to Sunday. Seeing the photo of the case full of currency also makes me think that at least one dealer didn’t stay for Sunday, since I don’t remember that table (I’m less likely to remember a random case of coins, but definitely didn’t see that currency… I think).

    Thank you. This got me thinking how much I'd like to attend my first coin show and just discovered one not far from me this coming weekend. Road Trip!

    @Zoins - I didn't notice any 2022 Boeing Coin Club medals, but I'm sure they were available.

    @1Bufffan - Yes, masks were mandatory, and they also checked vaccination statuses upon entry. Felt fairly safe.

    @YQQ - I did see a bit of Canadian, but not a whole lot ... both raw and certified material.

    @airplanenut - I'm sure some dealers bailed early on Sunday. Saturday was VERY busy, and I saw a lot of dealer buying as well. I noticed a couple transactions were dealers shelled out some serious cash (> $5K). Very active buy and selling.

    It wouldn't have been a question of early unless they came for dealer setup just to pack up and leave... I arrived 2 minutes after opening on Sunday, so anyone who was there I should have seen. Really, really quiet. Very much so even compared to past Sundays I've attended... and even the Sundays where the show had to compete with the Seahawks.

    This year's BECC show was the smallest and slowest one in my twenty years of attending. A number of regular dealers did not take tables this year for whatever reason.

    Thanks for the report and pictures.

    Thanks for your report.

    Thanks for the report. Great photos. Definitely looks like a shortage of gold coins in the market. Didn’t see any slabbed gold in any photos of the dealer cases.

    There was some, but not a lot, and that isn’t unusual for this show. Traditionally the show has, in my experience, a lower average value of coins on display than bigger shows, and whether that is a function of the dealers who set up not carrying more expensive coins or leaving them at home, it results in there not being a lot of gold. There isn’t a large amount of early type, which also runs expensive, either (though granted common-date gold has the appeal of an investor market behind just coin collecting)
