    There have been one or two posts on Baltimore, maybe on page two now.

    Laura from Legend posted this on the CAC forum about the Baltimore show.

    "It was unprecedented that EVERY MAJOR buyer I know of did NOT attend the Baltimore show. Also, there seems to be a new thing, East Coast dealers do not attend Long Beach anymore and the West Coast guys don't hit Baltimore. I have suggested forever these two shows cut down to 2 a year.

    I think security and costs are the main reasons these shows will fade into oblivion. Also, I never liked the fact the auctions moved to a week after (although there is something to be said for that). Add in a lack of interesting coins to display, these seem to be fewer dealers attending and even fewer collectors."

    I cannot see why the "June" Long Beach continues. It either ends up too close to Memorial Day or the hotel rates are too high of an overhead hit.

    The anchoring auctions were a major highlight of the shows too. They started ruining the shows though when the sessions were being held during bourse hours. At least holding a Platinum Night (or similar) with a catered dinner complemented a show in a very symbiotic way. Those sessions during the day were maddening. First, one had to keep track of them. And then is was either bid absentee, close the table up and sit through an hour of undesired lots waiting to paddle up the one I wanted, or miss the lot while dealing with buyers and tire kickers, buying it later on the secondary market at a mark up.

    @DelawareDoons.... Nice show report. Yep, bullion is getting a lot of interest right now, and predictions are that it will be going higher. We shall see... Cheers, RickO
