    Wish I knew about it sooner I would've attended. Is it a large show?

    Never been but I think it should be fairly large- Coinzip shows 72 tables.
    Hope you will come!

    The show was incredibly busy for most of the day Friday and Saturday,
    If you’re within comfortable driving distance, you should go next year.

    I sold a decent amount for having as small an inventory as I do.
    I only bought two coins: a proof US nickel and a very colorfully toned George VI Canadian quarter.
    I tried to buy a third piece to keep for myself and not resell. It needs to be in my “Whatever I want it to be” Box of 20.
    Had I been able to work out the deal, that would have made the show. I found a beautiful 18th century 2 ducats gold coin. The dealer was asking almost twice what one sold for in January a grade higher. He had a $9000 sticker in it. He quickly dropped it to $8000. No thanks.
    I went to see him again after researching auction prices. Found the one just mentioned that sold for $5000. When shown the facts , I learned he “couldn’t possibly” take less than $7500.
    He must not want to sell it….
    Depressing we couldn’t come to an agreement.
