Sacramento Coin Show short Report & newps
This was the first show I have ever attended so my impressions could certainly vary from the more, ahem, experienced collectors here. Doors opened at 10a and I arrived at 10:30a. The place was jam packed with barely any room to walk. There were 20ish dealer booths and certainly more than 100 attendees although that thinned out by when I left at 1p. I was impressed how little duplication there was between different vendors. There were certainly plenty of Morgans and Peaces and Double Eagles around but there were several specialized booths focusing on cents, paper currencies, etc. Seemed to be a brisk trade, more customers buying than selling, and prices were sky high with little room for negotiation. I came away with a couple of items I needed and paid a touch more than I wanted but so be it.
