    Please explain….should someone be in fear of their life to attend?

    No.. just be aware of your surroundings when walking to/from your car😉

    I think what they mean is that Baltimore is ranked among the highest Cities for Homicides and Robbery(#2 behind New Orleans) from an ongoing Study of Q2 2022. So yes, please be careful. Not picking on coin show, just concerned about our members.

    I was there from Wednesday set-up through Friday. Skipping Saturday this time, for a number of reasons, which was the plan from Day 1. As it turned out, I'm glad I left when I did, because I was pretty much done by Thursday afternoon. I'm thinking that Whitman may have taken a step in the wrong direction by lengthening the show with a Wednesday dealer set-up. Nowadays, shorter shows make more sense. If it were up to me, I'd let dealers set up on Thursday evening and open to the public on Friday.

    Anyway, I bought only one (very) significant coin at the show, for my collection. Also another great coin at the Syd Martin auction. Not an impressive looking pile, but no complaints whatsoever!

    No, but I had a connecting flight in Baltimore 30 years ago.

    Throw a coin enough times, and suppose one day it lands on its edge.

    Yes don’t ever go to Baltimore….it’s very scary there nowadays at the show ESPECIALLY at this time of year… Halloween. In fact I was absolutely terrified by this young gang and feared for my life.
