My Schertz, TX coin show report
This is a local show I try to attend each time they have it, which is once each quarter. Like most recent shows I've attended, attendance was good. I think it's still a pent up demand of people just wanting to get out and about. What I've noticed over the past year or so from these shows is that a lot of good material is drying up, raw or graded.
I was going to the show to pick up some raw coins for my bookshelf albums. Usually that's an easy task, but now that there's more competition doing the same thing, it's tougher to get these coins. I noticed that raw gold coins and silver coins were pretty hot. I had my eye on an 1862 type 3 gold dollar and made my way around the floor to check for other gold dollars. By the time I made my way back to that table, all the raw gold dollars I was looking at were gone! 300 bucks is what they were getting now - not true just a few months ago.
I did end up getting just 3 coins for my collection, but was very happy finding a decent 1926-S Buffalo in F condition for my Library of Coins album. From my view, coin collecting is alive and well. A few pics below, including the coins I found for my albums. No slabbed finds for me this day.
