Ultra premium-- Sold out.
Premium-- Sold out.
Select-- 10 tables available.
Economy--20 tables available including 5 that are in the Foreign and Ancient section.
Club tables --2 available.
A week ago, there were 50 tables available.
I have been to every ANA since 1970. I am getting excited! Can't wait.

    Is there a dealer list available yet? I feel myself getting pulled to the Dark Side so I want to check out the World and Ancient section.

    Is there a dealer list available yet?

    It's on the ANA website and it's being updated every couple of days.

    I just hope there are some nice coins available during the show. Dealers all seem to trade the nice things back and forth pre-show then take them home to prep for website inventory.

  • mtn_scoutmtn_scout Posts: 98 ✭✭✭

    I think (and hope) it will be better than last years show. I wasn't disappointed last year but a lot of dealers were telling me that I would have been over the moon happy with the international dealers as I collect more non-US than US. I've not gotten my airplane ticket yet but I did reserve my hotel already.

    I wb surprised if its not sold out. Seems like that’s a show full of whale rich collectors coming in to buy.

    Don’t really know what the table fee or ballpark on total expenses set up would be. Anybody have a number?

    I think it will sell out. There aren't too many tables to go and the market is very hot right now.

    The most sobering moment of the recent LB show is that I was talking to a dealer (on the forums) when a friend of his came up to the table and mentioned mutual coin acquaintance/friend caught Covid on June 4 and died on June 28, just before the show. This plus Covid going around after ANA. Be safe everyone.

  • ElmerFusterpuckElmerFusterpuck Posts: 4,627 ✭✭✭✭✭

    One day I'd like to hit one of these summer ANA shows but it won't be this one, work and other stuff going on.

    As for Covid, it is out there. Just got back from a cruise on 07/09 and 8 out of our group of 12 got it afterwards, including me. We have all since recovered, the symptoms were all manageable. It was a risk we all accepted and we all still would have gone even if we knew the outcome. Perhaps these variants are a bit more manageable? I'm not sure, since Covid can affect people in different ways. It is something to think about for sure.

    "I just hope there are some nice coins available during the show. Dealers all seem to trade the nice things back and forth pre-show then take them home to prep for website inventory."

    ANA now favoring dealers again to get all the fresh stuff before the collectors.
    Use to be the PNG show as the preshow and collectors could get in with a requested free pass from the PNG
    HQ, by phone. This has been going on for decades and has cost me opportunies and lots of money as I chased down certain coins only to find them gone to dealers at these pre events. I hate it, so unfair to the rest of the ANA members not a level playing field to us folks.
    So many really nice coins trade dealer to dealer and you never see them or know about them. One dealer told me it's a good old boy network, his words not mine. I have some dealer friends who tell me stories of these back room deals and trades. If you want a high Registry set you need a dealer friend who plays in this world and deep pockets
    Yourself. You will then become known as a "Big Fish". Ha!
    Some of my well known coin friends have gone back to plugging boards and albums with nice circ coins.
    Same fun but don't need to play with the rich and famous. And only need average pockets.
    Good luck
    Collecting since 1954
    And have had a number of number one Registry sets.

    Just an FYI. You do realize at almost every major show some dealers get together in Hotel rooms, and sometimes even have a mini bourse in a hotel conference room before dealer set up!

  • CoinosaurusCoinosaurus Posts: 9,614 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The dealer's best buyer, regardless of whether they are a collector or dealer, almost always gets first shot. It has nothing to do with attending dealer day or being in the "old boys" network.

  • kruegerkrueger Posts: 805 ✭✭✭

    Yes I am very aware what the dealers do outside the Bourse and to their Big Fish best buyers.
    If you are not connected somehow through there you will probably not be able to achieve a high end Registry set.
    A set yes but not top , no awards. The chase wore me out and emptied my pockets.
    It's expensive to go to big shows and not see or be able to buy some fresh material. . Trying to buy but those coins are already pre sold. They tell me. I am glad I built my sets with alot of coins I bought in the 80's and 90's..
    Alot of dealers I know don't like an advanced collector on the floor competing with them for certain things so they shut you out, play games.. dirty looks, cut you out of agreed upon deals with other collectors and dealers!., Even cuss you out . I see it more and more. Lately. Sad. Coin shows use to be more fun.
    Not playing in that hungry wolfs world anymore, moving on. I like collecting coins but don't NEED a one to survive.
    Sorry for the rant had to get some things off my chest.
    David Hall use to say " enjoy your coins" the ones you are able to buy and own.

    23 days until the show opens.
    There are 6 select tables available.
    20 economy tables available.
    1 club table available.
    I do not believe it will sell out.

    Should be a good show. Skipped out of the ANA and FUN shows for the pandemic. Not that is it at all over (and I have risks), I am setting up at this one. Masking and common sense has worked so far for me. (Current strains need that beyond the vaccinations, because of the reduced efficacy.)

    If you are interested in Trade dollars, stop by the table even if not buying. #1749 (Select Rarities) corner at the back of the Select section on the right. A lot of other stuff too.

  • goldengolden Posts: 9,050 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The ANA opens two weeks from today. There are only 11 tables left.
    Two tables in the select section.
    Nine tables in the economy section including two in the Ancient and Foreign section.
    There are also two club tables left.
    I am ready to go!

    I had no idea you are a dealer. As it happens, I am interested in trade dollars, although I won't be able to make it to Chicago.

    Do you have a website or ebay store? Where are you normally based out of?

  • 2ndCharter2ndCharter Posts: 1,641 ✭✭✭✭✭

    To get this thread back on track - With most of the remaining available tables in the "cheap seats", I'm sure the ANA is not worried about a sellout. After all, they've sold all the high-priced booths and will likely pick up some local dealers at the last minute for the back tables. Interesting that the Club table area just went from 1 to 2 available booths - wonder who bailed out.

    Sounds like a fun time - wish I could be there - prior commitments!

    I have not maintained my site (Select Rarities) since I sold off all of the Morgans. Do need to work that out. I am in San Diego, but not a B&M. Will do Long Beach and FUN (and maybe do the October Denver show). Selling off the Trade dollars at the shows. At FUN, I am considering moving the Ikes and Silver Eagles. Considering the Carr material before going overseas. Going to be tough to let go of the early dollars and Lafayettes (at least the DuVall 4E). A lot of other stuff, mainly various series' die varieties and some Colonial currency.

    6 tables left on August 9th. 3 in economy, 1 in club, 1 in select and last one is near the exhibits.
    Got a week to go. From that stand point I would call it a success. To the attendees, treat yourself
    one night and go to Morton's Steak House. Pricey, but well worth it. The ribeyes are excellent as
    long as you order them Rare-Medium Rare. Yum Yum!!

  • goldengolden Posts: 9,050 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The ANA Convention opens one week from today. There is only one bourse table (in the economy section) left to rent. There are also two club tables available.

  • tokenprotokenpro Posts: 846 ✭✭✭✭✭

    ANA increased the price of club tables several years back. Several organizations now split tables with another organization to both split costs and for conserving people power needed to man the table over the many hours of the convention.

    with a week away looks pretty much sold out... think there are like 3 tables available 1 in each area and those are a most likely result due to the dealers who took those tables not being able to attend... the buzz is that the show will be incredibly strong since Summer is usually slow and folks are ready to try to find nice material ... stop bye are table... lot of great stuff and we always have candy too Scarsdale Coin Table # 1121

    I'm confused - our Club table at the ANA this year didn't cost anything. Sure, if you want display cases and power, that's extra but the booth space itself is free. I ought to know - I'm the one who filled out and submitted our Club table application.
