Is there anyone from the forum that goes to that show? How is that show usually? I have not been before, but am looking to go this year. Thanks.

    I went to that show once (around 2017 or 2018). Small show with about ~40 dealers. Didn’t buy anything. I think the rumor was the person who ran the show had changed, and the new promoter wasn’t getting as many dealers to attend. This may change now that the central florida show doesn’t exist any longer, and the dealers may utilize this show now.

    I went to one last year or the year before. It’s a pretty good sized show and I enjoyed myself for the time I was there, which was maybe 2+ hours. I cherrypicked two coins that day. I bought one PCGS MS65 coin for $30 and I expect it will sell north of $750 this Sunday. Anyway, you just have to balance the amount of time driving that it takes to get there. I had bad traffic so round trip I drove about 9 hours. It certainly makes me think twice and three times about going again…but I kinda want to. Hmm

    I only live an hour away, so I am not terribly worried about travel time. Plus, Jacksonville has good places to eat at. Congrats on your Cherrypick.

    Sounds like it may be better these days. But, we will see how the pandemic impacted it I suppose. I will follow up after I go...several weeks from now.

    If it’s only an hour away for you, I would definitely go.
