TSNS Show Report

The Tennessee State Numismatic Society holds a show every March and November at the Camp Jordan Arena just south of Chattanooga. There is plenty of free parking.

I left home at dark plus. After about an hour I went through the drive thru at Hardee's for breakfast. I arrived at the show a little before opening time. When the show opened there were about 50 people waiting to enter. There were no young people seen at this show.

My first stop was to find the dealer that had sent two coins to CAC for me. The most valuable coin got a sticker and the other one did not. I do not understand why.

As I went around the floor, I saw one dealer that had two 1802 Half Dimes. Neither were straight graded. I have never seen a dealer with two of them before. Another dealer had an Uncirculated roll of 1903-O Silver Dollars. When was the last time that you saw one of those?
There was a lot of paper money at the show. One dealer had a very nice, slabbed set of 1861 Confederate $50, $100, $500 and $1000. It is the best set that I have seen in years.

Barbecue sandwiches were $6, Cheeseburgers were $6 and hot dogs were $3.

For Ricko: One ounce Silver rounds were $24, one ounce Silver bars were $25 and I saw circ. Silver Dollars for $25.

Half of the drive home was in a driving rainstorm.

I did not buy anything at the show but had a good time.

    @golden ... Thanks for the report. Seems you had an enjoyable show. I have gone to many coin shows (when I lived out West) and not purchased a coin... but still had fun seeing great coins and talking to collectors and dealers. Thanks for the bullion report too... Cheers, RickO
