-Saturday Report- Today was a relatively slow day with an attendance of 215. But...those who showed up were buyers and not tire kickers. One of the "mature" dealers asked me if I knew what I had done this weekend and I responded No. He said: You have created the Michigan State Fall show on the east coast. I don't know about that, but it made me feel good.

There were no security problems that I am aware of. The security team briefed me after everybody was gone and they had no problems. Prior to the show, I sent out a security email to the dealers who were attending. Hopefully, they all observed the warning NOT to stop, eat and leave their vehicle unattended.

ANACS was busy from opening to closing again today.

Next show April 6-8, 2023.

-Friday Report- The show went well today with an attendance of 408. It seemed like everything was selling including circulated wheat cent rolls, proof sets, gold coins, silver bullion, Morgan dollars, early type coins, currency and all key date coins. I worked several tables while dealers took a break and at each table, I made at least one sale while they were away.

ANACS was busy. Geoff from ANACS was onsite accepting submissions and he only had a chance to take a bathroom break once from 9am-5pm.

I met several board members. If you were at the show today, please post your experiences.

Spring National Battlefield Coin Show is April 12-13, 2024 at the Eisenhower Hotel in Gettysburg, PA. WWW.AmericasCoinShows.com

    Sounds like a lot of smart people are converting their rapidly inflating dollars into tangible assets.

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.
