PNNA Spring show my take!
I won’t drown everyone with more bourse pics as mine are similar to what has been posted…I drove down Thursday afternoon (i live 2 hours north) met with a good friend/dealer and sold him several coins for his inventory including a perfect original raw 17-S Walker AU58, i already regret selling this coin but his offer was too strong to pass up.
Friday was extremely busy with wholesale deals, it was so busy from 8am until 7pm that i was unable to leave my table to go try to find new material for myself! Saturday was slower but with decent retail buyers …
Sunday was way busier than i was expecting with roughly triple the sales of Saturday!
I spoke with a major dealer that said this was his best PNNA show ever…and my best also…I see no signs whatsoever of a downturn in numismatic sales…
Bullions sales were strong IF the dealer was willing to sell and the table across from me said he sold nearly every gold coin collector or bullion that he brought, several others said the same…gold sells quickly if you are willing to part with it…i asked around and raw Saints (low grade certified also) were selling for at LEAST 2350..I did not take any silver bullion/eagles to sell but was asked repeatedly if i had any to sell.
The highlight of the show for me was @Lakesammman showing me the 1796 Bust dollar today, truly an iconic piece of American history
Also great to catch up with @Swampboy @Omegaraptor @yosclimber @Nysoto and all the other “Coin Friends “ i have made along the way.
